Do posts made on the Courtship Portal page count, or should we make sure to submit to both that and the Members page to be included? This is a fun idea you had!

Just member posts. We want to make sure all the members can enjoy them.

Good question, Teresa. I had not thought of it before, but you are right: in some ways this contest is a disincentive for posting on the Courtship Portal. We'll see how it works out in the end.
The idea behind the Courtship portal is that it allows for discussions that are directly related to the class. Discussions between students and teacher. Questions can be raised about the lectures (especially useful for distance-participants) or about the reading assignments, etc.
The portal is also more private than the member feed.
But ideas are one thing. Reality often turns out different.
