    I have been posting comps for a company called Sprinkle.com. (I only found out about them when someone else started posting their competitions, but their posts were removed as they were deemed to be self-promotion). Some other members of the forum are of the opinion that this company will generate spam, although I have not noticed any increase in spam since I started entering them. I should appreciate it if VelvetGlove would take the time to read this thread and advise me it needs to be added to this list of ones not to post. Thanks.

    If they are not breaking the rules by asking people to post (in iwiwiw not the actual competitions) they are certainly bending them BUT as far as I know no one has reported an increase in spam from using the site.

    If you do a search with the #competition - you'll find loads of competitions that are so easy to enter - most of them just ask you to retweet something.

    Give it a go - it's so simple I don't know why you wouldn't!:j

    It looks like MSE Megan has taken a copy of the "4 Do any sites not want their comps/answers posted?" list and posted it as a sticky on the Compers Chat Corner, HERE, but with the addition on the bottom of:-
    cecilylovesbeauty.wordpress.com - No comps
    OMG Magazine - No comps

    Presumably the actual list should be updated accordingly.
