    Have you entered via Gleams before?

    You have to log into your gleam, via your email or social media and then complete the tasks.
    Think this competition in particular you can gain 94 entries for doing different tasks.
    Gleams usually count the entries as soon as you complete the task.
    If it won't count your entries via the Box site, you can try entering direct from the Gleam Widget site.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    Ok I got it now. I obviously hadn't signed in and doing something wrong. I had just clicked on a link on twitter to enter. I'm so new to this. Thanks for your help 😁🤞

    No problem at all, we are all a fairly helpful and friendly group, which is one of the reasons I love this forum in particular. 
    Ask away if you are ever unsure or you can use the search faculties, which aren't always the most reliable, but it is pretty good. 
    I'm always a message away too but I don't get notifications sent to my email or phone, so will only see it when I log in, which is fairly often but can be any time of day or night, so you might not get a response straight away.

    Happy Comping! :smiley:
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    This comp can give you a bit of a reality check - there are now over 245,000 entries, you can earn about 80 if you do the lot so your chances of winning would be about 3,000 to 1 (if you just do the minimum your chances of winning are over 120,000 to 1)

    But you have to be in it to win it 😁
    I've entered competitions that have had around 3 entries and not won.
    Then another competition had thousands of entries and I won.
    It only takes 1 entry to have a chance of winning.
    If something requires little effort, takes barely any of my time, is free to enter and has lots of entries, I'll probably enter.
    The more effort and time required, well that might be a different story 😂
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.
