a FREE one-year premium membership valued at over $150!

Although we got a variety of interesting and, in some cases, rather bizarre entries (and even a few suggestions of questionable taste and decorum), none of them fit the bill as possible names for our new Indy Personals. Sadly to say, this is one contest where we didn't have a winner.

If you still want to pre-register for an email notification when the Personals are up and running, click here.

Please use the subject "Indy Personals" and include your name and email address in the body copy. Otherwise, keep looking on and in print for further details on the launch of the new Indy Personalssure to be the talk of the Triangle when it's launched in March!

As an added bonusall features of premium membership, normally available to paying subscribers only, will be FREE to anyone who places an ad through the end of April.
