    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?

    I think it is a bit late in the day to have Advent "ideas" especially now that the Advents have started.

    There was a thread for Advent ideas about a month ago

    Yesterday was a bit of a slog- I stopped in the end because it's supposed to be something we do for fun not a chore! Hopefully today there are less new competitions....

    The A: rather than the E: is working brilliantly for me

    (BTW, thank you for your efforts sleepyjones (nd I note your prediction has come true...)

    This is the first year that I've tried the advents. Have already missed the bulk of the first two days...

    It's sheer madness!!

    Are those that do the mags dailies managing to keep them up?

    Also, does anyone manage to do the mags dailies + all the advents (tw/fb/ig and web) plus the comps board? That would take me hours...Im just about managing the web advents, dailies and comps board.

    So far I am keeping up with dalies/Mags I want to do but only end date comping for one or two days on the main board. Hope I can catch up after the advent madness has calmed down

    Its taking so long this time round, hoping to reduce my lists down significantly soon. Not entering for the tatty small prizes so that helps save time but its the having to look through everything on the list thats a killer

    Having spent an eternity the first day bookmarking and subscribing to my favourites and weeding out what I wasn't interested in it's almost manageable today. Almost. But then it's Sunday....
