Maybe we could even share the prize, Bo Peep, and both be winners! Cool

Thumbs Up Thanks!

How about two - one for the boys and one for the girls (I use the terms very loosely)? Wink

Brilliant idea, Anita - taking consideration of the ratio of girl Moderator/Verifier blokes to boy Moderator/Verifier blokes, that should put me very high on the ladder for getting one (you had my working 720, remember, - you owe me!). Laughing

PS, please don't get a PINK one though. Twisted Evil

Because my subscription expires at 11:15 on the 25th I appear to be unable to enter. Do I really have to go to the hassle of cancelling my existing recurring payment via Paypal and setting it up again?

Not if your subscription is going to auto-renew on the same day, that's fine. The rule is there to ensure that only subscribers enter and, as we had to draw a line in the sand someplace, it seemed sensible to make that the draw close.

But, if you have an auto-renewing sub, then it is, as far as we are concerned, active so long as it renews on the 25th, whatever the time.

Are you actually prevented from entering or is that just your interpretation of the rules?

Just visited the competition page for the first time, tried to enter the competition and received the message (in red):
You have already entered the competition!

Must be early onset of Alzheimer's 'cos I don't remember entering previously Sad


Same here!!

I know I have not entered before, because I just had to google the answer.

Wait a confirmation email has just arrived to confirm my entry that was a "duplicate"!!

We've had nearly a thousand entries so far, so the system is working for most of you.

So I've no idea how a few of you can have entered, complete with the correct answer, yet have no knowledge of having done so!! I've got the entries here as proof that you must have selected the answer and hit the 'Enter' button!

Have you all started on the sauce a little early?

No, totally sober ( at the moment )!!

It was my first entry and although it said I had entered before, I received an email a minute later to confirm that it was entered.

Are you saying the system will send an acknowledgment to a second attempt?

Have a good one.

Cheers
Jim

I entered the competition but as soon as I'd done so I realised that I'd clicked the wrong button. Can I scrub my entry and start again please?

Regards

If you've entered, you cannot enter again. I've no idea what you are describing but you've entered, I've received your entry, let's leave it at that Confused

Does "all" include moderators?

Sadly not, but... we are looking at a draw for our Moderators AND Verifiers only. I should have more news on that next week Smile

Hmm. Well, I just entered and it didn't say I couldn't. And I've just had an email saying I've entered.

Cor wot a swindle! - I just went back to enter again with the next choice answer and it won't let me. How do you expect people to get the right answer if we can't have three goes?
