    Can I ask-
    Is there a reason why all the answers are in capitals/upper case? Is this a neccessary requirement for entries to be accepted?
    Thanks

    Hope it's OK to add - for the direct link I delete the 'https://' from the address and press enter and the page loads. Not if it's just a Google Chrome thing though!

    hi, yes, I remember the discussion for it quite a while back,
    but can't find the actual thread for it unfortunately,
    I do know it says upper or lower case when
    texting the entries in on the ef,
    but i've always followed the instructions for the Block
    letters,
    might be a good idea to get in touch with them again
    & re enquire?
    thanks for the help x

    (It's easier for those that struggle a bit to have the answers on here in block caps, someone mentioned this long ago)
