    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?

    After 3 rather large wine glasses of Bailey's (they did have ice in) I am starting to think "bugga the advents, let's go find something to watch on You Tube"

    I'm so underwhelmed by the advents this year. I've been dipping in and out as I'm pretty busy in "real life" but there seem to be so many rubbish ones! Loads of the companies that ran them last year don't seem to be doing them this year; and loads of the ones that are running are offering pretty poor prizes, or just offers/discounts.
    At least I'm not worried I'm missing out if I get too busy to take part.

    This is exactly where I'm at. Was out most of yesterday and today and managed to catch up pretty swiftly.
    Most of the decent ones are posted overnight so manage to get them first thing.

    I miss all the fun ones that we used to have like the haggis & I think Littlewoods used to do a good one, then there was the one were Santa's presents fell off the sleigh and you had to search around in the snow to find the one for that day. Does anyone else remember these?
