The readers of the Merrick Patch certainly understood their contest. There are 18 photos posted: 16 adult couples, 1 teen couple, and 1 kids couple. NO babies and NO brothers and sisters because those don't belong in a Valentine's Contest. They are not a couple.

To Amanda: I am 100 percent certain, I did not misunderstand. But, happy to have asked the question to which most have misunderstood. Whether I agree or disagree we are certain of the way it was supposed to be.. We will see.... Thank you for the "good job" compliment.... ---------- Amanda 4:59 pm on Sunday, February 12, 2012 At least you are honest and admit that you misunderstood and needed clarification Paul. Good job Paul!

I think everyone needs to relax, it is a fun contest and there were no rules stated. Where is the love????
Gina M February 13, 2012 at 02:14 AM
stop trying to poopoo the contest!!
Gina M February 13, 2012 at 02:15 AM
look what you started! LOL
Gina M February 13, 2012 at 02:16 AM
A and J have my vote! they are so cute!!!
Susan February 13, 2012 at 02:20 AM
To Gina M, I guess with all the babies in the contest, your bathroom words are appropriate. There are Patch rules for the contest. They are posted on other Patch sites. What are you so ANGRY about?? Chill dear.

Susan makes a valid point. It appears that almost all the Patch columns got it right by the readers. Patch offered this throughout all the Patch communities. This topic must have been given to all the Patch communities with guidelines to follow but some readers have chosen to create there own rules. Yes I know this is not an earth shattering event, however - how and why so many have misinterpreted its true meaning is interesting.

@Susan, @Paul - Enough already and get on with it. Mike already cleared this all up and all is good. And like Mike said before as well - STOP SWELLING ON IT ! Michael Ganci 12:52 am on Sunday, February 12, 2012 Okay everyone. Here's the lowdown. No rules have been broken. The winner of this contest will either be the couple (if they are over 18) or the person who submitted the photo for them. If you submit a photo of kids, I believe they should be rewarded with a prize though! Keep on voting, and if you want to submit, remember, the deadline for voting is 12 p.m. on Feb. 13. Best of luck!

Ok and before you make a comment it was a typo it should say dwelling on it
paul February 13, 2012 at 03:18 AM
To Debbie: I got it. I love typos. They make for better reading. LOL
Amanda February 13, 2012 at 03:18 AM
I think all the photos are great! Regardless of age, they are great! This is a fun contest and I can't wait to see the winner announced. Good Luck to all!
Ted February 13, 2012 at 03:20 AM
My vote is for Justin and Eddie....
paul February 13, 2012 at 03:22 AM
I want to preface my next comment on complimenting Mike Ganci. As always seeing to it that level heads prevail. His kind and understanding personality is excellent to be able to deal with all of our comments back and forth. I take my hat off to Mike.... Thanks for being you....
paul February 13, 2012 at 03:46 AM
Please note: The below is not a knock on Mike G in any way shape or form. He is a true gentleman in his approach.. I was not asked to post this. Mike was kind enough to allow the contest to continue with entries that were not initially appropriate. All should enjoy and have a good time doing it. But for those who thought differently: Based on my intense research, the reality is: (REMEMBER MY RESEARCH) The below is from another Patch and is probably what it was supposed to be. But readers chose to go beyond what it was intended for. http://rosemont.patch.com/articles/rosemont-cutest-couple-contest-rules 5. Entry: To enter the Contest, go to rosemont.patch.com and follow the directions to submit a photo of you and your spouse/significant other. Entrants can only submit photos of themselves with their spouses/significant others. The use of any agencies or automated software to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person.
