Fw: [IP] Hey - where's your dot?

this is the first time I am trying this so I hope it works.
There may be a reason you are not getting profiles submitted like you think
you should.  I filled one out at least 10 times and when it was completed
all I did was hit the submit button and assumed it was sent.
When I would go in and see if it was there it never was. Finally emailed
stats and asked for help and this is what I got back.

This might help
