    Hi, all. It may just be something stupid I did, but when I went to enter the latest competition, I went back to the Pippa Middleton one as well by mistake (I'd already entered it), and the system hadn't saved my answer (even though my autocomplete had). I went further back, and none of the ones I'd recently entered had saved, but each answer was in my autocomplete, so I'd definitely done them before. Just thought it might be worth you checking.
    Thank you all for everything you post. :-)

    As noted by One-Eye in post #2 "8) T-A-B do not show that you have previously entered a competition (after you have exited your current session) and there is nothing that stops you from entering again. The terms state "we will accept only one entry per registered user. If more than one entry for the same issue is received, we will accept the first entry only". This means you will not be disqualified if you accidently enter a second time, and if you are unsure whether or not you have entered, or whether your entry has been accepted, it is OK to enter the comp to be certain."
