No, I saw what you meant

But was a bit upset because a few weeks ago someone queried why I entered the answers in red bold - as no one seemed bothered I stopped doing that as it saved me a little time

I spent most of yesterday doing this and the Winter Special - I appreciate people need the correct answers but it makes me very sad when people don't send me a PM but prefer to show mistakes up on the thread.

You are a lovely member of this board and this isn't aimed at you really but I felt very down after reading your post

Sorry

Apologies Chrissie, I didn't think it was a mistake at all. Just wanted to clarify it for the benefit of others. Next time I will PM instead

Thanks for being so kind, both of you

I did understand the point being made - I will return to what I thought was best and highlight the answers in bold red from next week.

Thanks again

Just a thought that may save you time Chrissie,


Why not put a ~ between the Title of the comp & the answer so it would look like this:

25 X £50 4 -Squared ~ SEAL
20 x Mega Snap ~ 26

Would that save you time?

hi chrissie, i used to just copy/paste the blurb from the live page & then add the answer, was much quicker & saved a lot of misunderstandings ie:

http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/...ke+break+issue

hth x
Smiling is contagious you catch it like the flu 。◕‿◕。
when someone smiled at me today i started smiling too, i passed around the corner & someone saw my grin & when he smiled i realized i'd passed it on to him, so, if you feel a smile begin don't leave it undetected, let's start an epidemic quick & get the world infected.

Sorry to bump, but I wanted to say I was a big fan of the red bold! But assumed you'd changed to save time, and didn't mind at all, because I can sympathise on being short of time!

You do whatever suits you best and we'll all appreciate it.

I liked the red bold too ( old eyes aren't what they were) but appreciate that it adds to the considerable effort you already put in. Please don't feel down. Everybody greatly appreciates what you do.
