    I cant figure out how to search for end dates so I just enter them as they come on the board. If you know how to get comps up by the closing date I would appreciate your advise.

    At the bottom of the comps page are "display options", if you change them to "Sorted By - Thread Title" and "Sort Order - Ascending" then when you press "Show Threads" that will put them in day order, so all the 01s will be togeather followed by 02 etc

    (the "From The - Beginning" option does not need to be changed)

    I always enter the day before they end, and i don't usually get through the whole list either, but i do do well x
    :starmod: May all your wishes come true! :starmod:
  • I work from the back of the list to the front slowly but surely but never seem to catch up. And i search for 01/01 or whatever, searching title only and untick search child forums, and enter all the ones on the end day. I've won a few things this year, but I enter so many I wish I won a bit more.

  • I enter by most recently posted, I've done end-by date comping before and prefer this method. For example at present I have entered or ticked entered even if I haven't on every comp on here!!!
    2009 Wins = £833
    2010 Wins = £6,597
    2011 Wins = £7,083

    £2,012 in 2012 = £450/£2,012
    20 in 2012 = 4/20

    I was wondering this myself. I enter comps early (day or day after posted) and hardly win a thing

    Your signature looks like you're doing alright to me however you're entering them.
