I noticed that since I started writing, "I will read and follow the Guidelines."... I have been getting "Accepted" in my email. I write the specific date. If I give more than two dates, I don't get any shop. When I wrote, 'I have successfully completed this type of shop.' or anything similar, I did not get a single acceptance. Even when I say, thank you...nada. JFYI, OP. Good luck!
