    Advent Competitions 2017! 26th Oct 17 at 12:18 PM
    Welcome to the 2017 Advent competitions!


    What is an Advent? : See here

    How to post an Advent comp

    Please make a competition thread as normal on the main board (see here if you don't know how to do this). Please start your thread with an A: instead of the usual E: to the title of your thread. Please also try and keep your title brief, we don't need to know "wiin various prizes" or anything like that, keep it short and sweet ie :

    A : 24/12 Thorntons (TW/FB/Daily)

    Then add a link to the competition thread you have just created to the end of this thread (more info on this below, please keep reading).

    So, Please follow this format when posting a link here:

    A: ??/?? Site name or company running the comp (how to enter if not web)

    That's all we need.

    To create the clickable link:

    (you may find it easier to have two pages open, one for the competition thread you have just created and the other for this Advent thread)
    Copy the address of the competition which you created on the main board (highlight it, right click and 'copy')

    In this thread type out the A: ??/?? Site name or company running the comp
    Highlight the whole line of the text you've just created
    Click on the little world symbol above your text (if you hover over this it says 'insert link)
    A box pops up
    Paste your copied link into this box - you only need one http://. It's best to delete the one that comes up automatically before you paste your link.
    Click ok
    Then you can post it, BUT not before you've told me which section it should be placed in. This will save me a lot of time opening all the links, so I'd be really grateful if you could all try and do this.

    The sections are:

    Web Only A-M
    Web Only N-Z
    Web Only Regional
    (Where you have to be in a specific region, or collect a prize personally)

    Facebook Only A-M
    Facebook Only N-Z
    Facebook Regional
    (Where you have to be in a specific region, or collect a prize personally)

    Twitter Only A-M
    Twitter Only N-Z
    Twitter Only Regional
    (Where you have to be in a specific region, or collect a prize personally)

    Web/Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Google+ (two or more of these entry methods will be possible for comps in this section)

    Once only

    RaffleCopters

    Instagram

    Gleam

    Other (Pintrest, Vine etc)

    Email

    TXT / Postal




    If there are any posts in here where the user has not posted a thread on the main board I'd be grateful if someone could make one and then post the link to here. .

    New competitions will be added to the top of the relevant section, so please check the top of each section for newly added comps.

    When comps have closed I will use the red strikethrough rather and move them to a section at the bottom of the post called "Expired". This makes it easier next year when people want to check which comps are running again.

    PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T DUPLICATE ANY ENTRIES AS SOME MIGHT BE LISTED IN DAILIES/WEEKLIES TOO

    To subscribe to this thread - click 'Thread Tools' on the green bar at the top of this post then 'subscribe to this thread'. Select whether you want email notifications or not, then click 'add subscription'.

    There is a thread for chat here.

    Any advents with a daily / weekly prize with a value of £100 or over should also be posted in this thread (this allows people with not much time on a particular day to enter the better competitions that day.

    Good luck everyone!

    Any mistakes as far as dates, or which category a post is in, fire me a PM and I'll update.

    I've just found it on a previous page, it's not been added to the main lists yet. Suffering from advent overdose.

    As the old saying goes, dogs/cats are not just for Christmas,
    please take time to understand how much commitment is needed before taking one on or buying/giving one for a christmas present x
