Hooray, my first page has some green "Entered" boxes showing.
Sadly, no skipped boxes which are equally important IMHO, but 'tis early days>
Also, it seems to only be those marked before the changes. I've just checked the main page in the search results and the comps I've just entered aren't showing.
ETA - Maltesers comp was only added on Friday and is showing as entered on main page, but when searching by end date, no comps show the green box...
Green shoots? 

Worse things will have happened in the world today...

    Not sure what you mean?  All of my front pages have either green entered boxes, or red skipped boxes and have since the new forum began?  Do you mean you can hit enter from the front page?

    Oh my days, you're right!  Skipped boxes are also showing< <3  (Just went into  a couple and ticked "Skip")  This has only just started happening for me, but only on those "Normal" display pages. None show on search result pages which is frustrating for the end date comper.  :/
    Also, we actually have to open each thread to tick "Skipped" whereas in the old forum we could put the red cross as we skimmed down the list.  This was hugely valuable. 
    Sorry for any confusion caused - no, I have to enter each thread to enter (Or mark, as above.)

    We have asked (a lot) for the function back to be able to skip from the front page without having to open each comp,  apparently they have it on their list of things to do.  Hope it won't be much longer, they have fixed a few things already for us x

    Lots of fixing happening 'behind the scenes' which is necessary before we get the benefit.

    I am using the bookmark tab to mark that I have skipped the comp.

    I do it just for fun and whatever I win is a bonus

    Hi JamboDP does this not just fill up your bookmarked file and then when you clean it out it just puts everything back to unskipped etc. Please forgive me if I am being thick (I do have my moments)

    Why clean it unless it is full? But you can always delete them sometime after they are finished as they don't need to be marked once they are in game over

    Goodie! :) Do you think they'll be able to extend the green boxes showing on front pages in Search results too?  Really missing them there.

    I'm going to try that. Are you finding they show on front pages of search results?
