Hi Karen,
 
You are correct that the ellipsis usage is different from one site to another; however when GCU posted the link that the review team left you below, I use that every time on my cards and they fly through review. So, GCU has a method to follow for ellipsis use on their site, follow it and you'll never have returns for ellipsis again. Smiley  
 
That's been my experience, anyway.  Smiley

Thanks Doreen, well if I read the article correctly, there should be NO ellipses on the front of the card and a space between the ellipses and the first word on the inside. I hope I got that correct.

That is NOT correct. All the article says is that the ellipsis is often misused on the card front or over-used. There are times when it's appropriate.
 
Card front:
 
When I think of ... (notice space after of, then three dots)
 
Inside would then be:
 
... you and I my world spins.  (inside verse begins with the ellipsis a space and then the continued message)
