    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.

    hi bob, I sent VG a pm earlier when the new list was
    posted so hopefully she's aware of it now & will amend the comping guide with new details.

    The three sites on the list of sites that don't want answers posted:-

    BookDagger.com - Don't post answers
    BookGeeks.co.uk - Don't post answers
    BookHugger.co.uk - Don't post answers

    are no longer sites in their own right but are now part of
    Nudge-Book.com. So they should be removed from the list. The new site does not normally have questions for their comps but I suppose they should be put on the list in case they do at some point.

    (text below taken from blog site in relation to blog owner
    re comps/etc are not posted on comp site..


    I’m really sorry, but I had to close down my giveaway 2h after my post went online. The reason is, that it has been picked up by spam and competition websites and within 2h I was flooded with thousands of spam accounts. My morning has been extremely exhausting from disqualifying people and contacting websites to remove my giveaway. I would have not been able to go through that hassle for another 4 days. That’s why I’ve closed the Rafflecopter form.
    This makes me really sad, because I’d like to engage with my readers and target audience and not attract spam and robot accounts. My aim was to say Thank You to my fellow bloggers and also to gain valuable new readers. It really sucks the joy out of a giveaway plus it has taken me a lot of time preparing and executing this giveaway. In the future, I will refrain from competitions and release a separate statement in the next week.

    Hi mjm3346, unless I'm missing something, that isn't a comp thread as it's in Discount Codes 'n Vouchers. (Apologies, it's been a hard week, with long hours so I could be missing something very obvious!!)

    Can you narrow it down for me please, exactly what comp thread is posting quesions/answers so I can take a look and update the Comping Guide with the right info?

    Thanks :o
