    I was wondering about the 'rules' of the contest, I have fulfilled all the criteria but I was wondering about the first item, log on to the site at least once. I am always logged on, my computer runs 24/7 with 20 or so sites open in browser tabs, including LC and the forum. I do occasionally get emails from LC telling me I last logged on 6 or 9 months ago despite the fact that I rarely log out.

    To be certain I am in with a chance I should log out and back in again I suppose but I am not sure if doing that on the same day will count, it depends on how the logins are logged, I may need to log out for some days. It would be a pity to get excluded due to a technical error.

    Your My Details page at LostCousins contains . . .

    Privacy Settings
    When you log-in at LostCousins we will store a cookie on your hard drive, but it will be deleted when you log-out (don't log-out if you want to be logged-in automatically when you next visit the site). No personal information will be stored in the cookie, and no information about you or your browsing habits will be available to other websites.

    I take this to mean that you will be recorded as having logged in whenever you visit the site, provided that you have this option for Auto Log-in selected and do not ever log-out.

    I thought that one of the LC pages identified the date of last log-in but I cannot find that. Perhaps that could be a suggestion for Peter to add? That might avoid unnecessary worry for some members.

    (I was always taught that I should not drop my 'h's.
    Perhaps a moderator would be kind enough . . . ? and then delete this request?)

    No need to worry - I won't actually be checking whether members have logged-in or not, because it's also a requirement to enter at least one relative - and you can't do that without visiting the website.
