    Unfortunately I don’t think that qualifies, Steve. I know, I know. People and their *definitions*.

    I’m having trouble finding the info, but is this a paying market?

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    Yes, Haddayr, it’s a paying market. I also just pasted the submission info into the original entry, too.
