    Advents Idea

    Advents Idea 18th Nov 17 at 10:53 AM
    Just a suggestion regarding the advent competitions - is it possible to keep them just in the advents section and not in the main competitions section. Reason being that if, like me, you are too busy to enter all advents every day you can still enter the normal competitions without spending extra time sorting through pages and pages of advent competitions. It really makes it very difficult for people who don't enter them and time consuming. If then I have some extra time I can go to the advents and enter them. I hope this makes sense. What does everyone think?

    Bring it on!!

    I've not been able to do them properly before due to working full time (and life) but this year I'm home for all December a following an operation. What fab timing is that!! (Short attention span though, I'm not going to get bored with them am I?)
    MASSIVE THANKS TO ALL POSTERS!

    I will be making high, medium and low priority folders. High will get done first each day and the rest only if I have time.

    Good luck folks, see you on the other side

    I'm out tomorrow, and my planned early morning comping will have to be put on hold until late afternoon...

    Good luck everyone.

    Previous years have seen me making a top 30/40/50 (mental) list and ignore the rest
    Already dished out a few red crosses.

    Not interested in branded tat like Sunny D glasses, kwik-fit ice scrapers and the like.
    Much prefer stuff with Sony, BOSE and 'Fish is the Dish' emblazoned across them!

    Lots of advents already X'd.So tired from bookmarking things! At least half of those will be binned this time tomorrow. I'm just entering the last of none advent comps that are up that I want to enter and then getting some sleep. Phone all charged up for insta & FB comps in the morning.

    I've woken up to a broken laptop! I didn't manage to find one on black Friday and thought mine would at least last 'til new year. what a time to give up the ghost, after I spend last night organising my advent folders Thank God for generous sisters (who are at school and don't know I'm using their laptop! )

    Oh no Blueyez, that isn't good! I hope you sort your laptop or a laptop out properly soon!


    I'm just going through the board to start with and anything I don't like, mainly sharing via Facebook posts or having to join a site I'm not yet a member off, I'm crossing off, giving me more time to focus on those that are actually available and are of interest to me. I'm not sure I will stick to everything daily but I will enter as and when I choose and have time.

    Good Luck everyone!

    Trying to do Twitter and Mse is madness, I started at 4:30am after my laptop decided today was the day for updates.

    Never seen twitter so busy. I'm nowhere near in control of what I'm doing yet, and there's me thinking I'll get a few hours click to wins in today...yeah right!

    Good luck everyone

    Once I have put a red cross next to the ones I don't want how do I stop them appearing? I am still getting them come through again in the lists when they are bumped? I am already really struggling to keep up with the advents and I can't easily find other comps. This seems like you need to be at it full time in December to keep up and enter everything. Thanks
