You are far more likely to receive responses if you post only two or three of these at a a time. Few people have the time or desire to deal with so many, especially if there are quite a few problems., and threads can become very confusing if different people are responding to different questions at the same time.

1. OK
2. I don't know what you mean by 'intramural' or 'crushes'
