Looking for "schwinnderella"

Saw a post from you a year or two ago, concerning a dented Lilac Competition? I need a fork!!!!!!! Any chance it is still around?

Thanks

But, because of a glitch, it only works if you write it all the way out. Don't pick the name from the pop-up dialog box.

This is news to me. Has this problem existed for a while? Sounds like an urban legend.

Yes, it has.

You can use the pop-up dialog box to make sure you spell the name correctly. But go ahead and type out the full name.
