    2/ Quality N/A so i'll give it 6 stars.
    3/ Value is was free to submit when I did so 6 out of 6.
    4/ Communication was 5 out of 6.
    5/ N/A not to say it was bad or anything like it, just I didn't see it.
    6/ Networking, well I'm new to Mojo so networking is all down to me so i'll give this a 5 out of 6 because I did see a lot of them on the Social Network Networking .
