How much can you vote: You can cast as many votes as you like. But, I believe you can only vote once per post. So if you see three different menus you like you can vote for all three.

 

When does it end: Between now and Valentines day (February 14th 2011) ChefTalk.com 

 

How many votes do you have? Check your post, you should see an image like this: LL

 

The number is how many thumbs up you have received.

Sorry, Nicko, but I don't think it's a good thing for a community to have contests that are only open to some of the members.  It's a bad message.  If there are reasons you can't send a prize abroad then it would be better to make a contest without a prize at all.

Oh no why can't our international friends participate?

 

Also, I'm not making my valentine's menu until valentine's day, can't take the pictures I'd like to post until then.  I don't want to post an idea for a menu, I want to post the actual menu I'll be doing.  I wish the deadline could be extended a day so that we can share what we did rather than what we imagine up we could do.

So why can't we compete?

If any of us outside the USA wins, we just take the honours and you can give the price to the runner-up's......

I wouldn't have a problem with that.

I'm quite sure the rest of the gang agrees ....
