I would ♥ to a ask a question via this topic to try and find out why I have not received any Topic points (15,000) for February. I am also missing 7,500 & 10,000 level increase points. I have written many emails but can not get replies back. Why have I still not received these points and will you look into why no one is coming back to me?

Hi Toluna Team, I thought that I would try this foram to ask, you a few questions, as the email that I have sent to you, do not seem to get you attention. or if they do they come across rather rude and uninformative.
1. I have been waiting for my voucher since December but got a rather rude email saying it 8 weeks from when I order them, baring in mind it is now March so that well over the time quoted on there, plus you did not take it upon yourself to check wich voucher I was question, as yes i do have the february ones order but I was not chasing them but i suppose i will have to do that in the new future as well since the time quoted do not correspond to when we do eventually get them, it is very disheartening, and discourageing when this happen, and make us think is it worth our time spent on here.
2. I wrote another email in regards to getting the promotion and getting the incentive points for which i do appreciate, but I wanted to clarity do I still get points for creating opinions if I get the minimum replies, as i have been checking my points page and do not seem to be added and tried your help pages and they are as clear as mud, and does not say whether you do or do not, and what with you forbidding us from asking on the foram, how are we to find out? and also do I still get points for doing 80 worded opinions.
Your reply would be much a appreciated

The competition is over.. We will announce the winners soon, but we must first say it was really, really hard to pick just two in a sea of great stories.
Thank you so much for being part of this.

The love that any couple feels was never so evident to my husband and I as it was on valentines day twenty years ago. I was hospitalized a few days before the "big day" because of complications in my pregnancy, both the baby as well as myself were apparently in stress. The economy was down and my husband's place of employment had them working on a "job share" project, which began several months before. They would work 1 day a week and collect unemployment benefits for the remainder 4 days, although that sounded great in theory, the cheques didn't come in for two and a half months. We were down on our financial luck, but love is stronger than wages in our relationship. So, back to Valentines day, it was the only shift that my husband was scheduled for that week, and it was the afternoon shift from 3 until 11. In the maternity ward, which is where I was residing, all patients have vistors during the evening hours, and Valentines day was no different. I was sad and lonely knowing that the life of our unborn baby as well as my own was not good, I was also not looking forward to the prospect of not having my husband with me for dinner and the evening on Valentines Day. He did visit during the day hours, and gave me a card as that was all that we could afford that year. His presence always meant so much more to me, which is why I SO wanted him to be holding my hand on the evening of the 14th. As luck would have it a coworker of mine came by, she was bragging about the large arrangement of flowers that her husband had produced for her that day, then her husband strolled in and presented me with the same arrangement. I almost fell out of my bed! A valentine flower, and from a man. Wow, their presence during a very lonely evening and the surprise of flowers so lifted my spirits. In the days and weeks to come my husband's presence at my bedside was more evident. Our child was born two days after valentines, and was put into an incubator. She was diagnosed with congential heart disease. After we were discharged from the hospital we saw a pediatric heart specialist who advised us that she had 4 heart defects including 2 holes in her heart (shot there by cupid I wondered) as well as a missing valve. They hospitalized her hoping to do surgery, but she was discharged a few days later as she was too weak to undergo open heart surgery. She passed away just a few days later. My heart and that of my husbands became ONE. We have committed to never ever be apart from each other on valentines day, we will be there regardless, and have ever since been together, usually holding each other and continuing to support and love each other. Had we listened to the experts twenty years ago, we would have succumbed to the stats that state that 94% of all couples who loose a child separate within a years time. We have never stopped loving or supporting each other. We are encouraged by the fact that valentines day is just 2 days before our daughter's birthday and that allows us to enjoy and celebrate our love for each other. Yes, valentines day is for lovers, life long lovers!

Neither myself nor my fiance like to celebrate Valentine's; we prefer spontaneous gestures. On that note, I'd like to tell you about our first date. We met online and things moved pretty quickly, but had never actually been on a "date". So, one December afternoon he surprised me by taking me to the movies to see a film I'd wanted to see, and then onto a mall where he revealed that, ever since he was a boy, he visited a mall Santa every year. (He was 24 by this time!) He gave me his visit that year and Santa gave me a present which I unwrapped, to find a small boy doll, oddly, with the name of my partner!
8 years later, we still visit mall Santa every year, and my little doll still sits in pride of place as both a token of my first proper date, and a yearly tradition.

We have been married 44 years this month and usually we always send each other a valentine card,this year we did something different.
Instead of spending money on a card we bought each other a scratch card instead and guess what my wife won £12 on hers and was well pleased.
So as well as the present I bought her (chocs) she treated herself to a new blouse.
She wants to do it again next year because she said she doesnt need a card to tell her how much she means to me .So for her it was a verry Happy Valentines Day .

Money being tight, hubby and I decided not to celebrate Valentine's day this year. Havin badly broken my foot and been none weight bearing for 4 weeks with another 3 to go I was feeling rather miserable. On valintie's day he brought me up a card he had drawn himself. He cooked me a lovley dinner with the tray all laid out, a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates. He had been saving his pocket money that he has forthe odd drink,paper and tobacco and said he did it as I needed cheering up I was so pleased. and it worked. I felt much happier.

"No it can't be, don't be daft" but it was, a pink envelope on my door mat on Valentine's day. I think the last one was when I was 12, more years ago than I care to remember and I'm not sure that cards from your mom count. But after all these single years a ray of hope, a card. I picked it up, a womans writing, but who ? that woman from the club ? I hope, I hope. Fingers almost shaking I open the envelope and slide out the card..... Happy....Birthday..... Oh, aunt margaret, looks like shes got her dates mixed up again. Oh well, time for work, maybe next year.

Valentine's Day has never meant much to me, personally. I think that it's due in large part to the fact that my parents had a wonderful relationship and partnership with a lot of love and respect, so, to them, every day was Valentine's Day. They gave my brother and me such a good example into what a marriage should be like. Yes, they argued occasionally, but that gave us the opportunity to see that people could disagree, work things out, and not lose love and respect for each other. My parents weren't big on gifts specifically for Valentine's Day as they both said that having just one day to do something nice for your partner didn't make sense to either of them (althhough they would get each other something small, along with a card). They would do or give each other small things throughout the year for no reason at all - just because they wanted to see the other one smile and be happy. These weren't big things - my mother might buy something in the grocery store, like lamb chops (which we didn't have on any kind of a regular basis due to the cost), which my dad loved. Or he would go out for one reason or another and pick up a jigsaw puzzle which my mom would like - she especially liked the ones based on Wyeth paintings. To see how they honored each other every day was the best example that my brother and I could have had!
