International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Easily done. Set a daily reminder in toodle-do with the link, so it's a commitment of 5 seconds a day.

    You don't have to wait 24 hours to vote again.

    I'm not sure about that. I voted yesterday around 3:00PM Pacific time and am unable to vote this morning so far. I'll try again after 3 and see if it works then.

    Can someone come up with a Signature for this, trying to do it, but the site is always saying 1 Line to long, lets see what just happened while typing this :)

    Edit: 437 votes.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I checked the page again, and under the vote button it says: "you may vote once every 24hrs".

    EDIT: Also, is there an easy way to check the rankings?

    My mistake! I voted on my computer last night through my Facebook account. I voted this morning on my I-pad through my Facebook account. No problem. I incorrectly presumed that meant you do not have to wait 24 hours. I then checked the rules. "Members of the public may vote for multiple stories but only once per story, per 24 hours. Online ballot-box stuffing is not permitted, and subjects all votes from such active email address from being disallowed." So I am sorry everyone for the incorrect info!

    Also, after voting on my I-pad, I later returned to my computer and checked the vote total. I could have voted again. I suspect some people are voting on multiple devices for their favorite story not realizing what the rules say. Hopefully, those votes will be removed.

    I do, unless I use a different browser, or "privacy mode" of my browser because that deletes your cookies when you close the session. (But it's not advised because they say they will delete all of your votes if you do that.)

    We turn into pumpkins.

    (Edit: you might need to get that fact checked.)

    I can't see anything on the site itself about voting for only ten days, though.

    Maybe that's when voting for new submissions closes but each one gets ten days of voting? But it doesn't say anything about that in the rules, as far as I could see. But presumably Ryan knows!

    No problem! It's good that we clear these issues up at an early stage. No need to feel embarrassed :thumbsup:
