Quick dailies question

Hi everyone, getting back into my stride after a “can’t stand the new forum” break, I’ll be posting some comps soon but I have a little questions about the dailies (not the mag dailies)

when I click on the dailies thread it takes me to page two hundred and something. Is there an updated dailies list on page 1? As it will take me all day to slowly click one page at a time to get to page 1… or do people just work their way backwards on that thread to do daily entries?

thanks all xx

    Not sure why you have to click one page at a time.

    Here's page one if it helps?

    Thanks for that, I don’t know why either but that’s the only option it gives me, it seems page 1 isn’t updated, do you do the dailies yourself dust bunny?

    Why would you want page 1 - the thread is not kept updated only added to?

    There is no longer the page where all the current ones are listed like there used to be. They just get added to the back of the thread now. Personally I just bookmark all the ones that interest me when they are added to the main board and keep my own list.

    That’s what I was asking if page 1 was updated as it once was, so the routine for people is to work backwards from recently added ones?

    I do daily entries but not using mse, the list is mainly comps you can enter daily if you want to....I don't  ;)

     I prefer comps with daily prizes, instant win type

    People used to post in the dailies thread, then the person in charge of the thread would update and put every competitions on the first post.

    This unfortunately takes someone hours of updating the first page, leaving the person in charge no time for themselves or to enter competitions themselves and I would imagine some people would even message the person in charge to let them know it wasn't up to date, but it may not have been updated because the person might not have even logged in. 
    It is way too much work someone and people need to be able to live their lives offline as well as online. So unfortunately, you'll need to go to the end posts and enter that way.

    THIS IS NOT AIMED AT YOUR OR ANYONE IN PARTICULAR. 
    So much has changed, especially since the new forum, I wish people would try and think more positivity and adapt their way of doing things, instead of saying 'we can't do this anymore' it should be 'how can I make it work this way' learn new ways of doing things.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    Yeah it’s a shame to see how fractured this group has become, I don’t mean the new forum but how many people (from when I started in 2008) are being treated so badly, I also hate to see on social media comps all the begging and million entries and total desperation. Makes me sad.

    yeah I have no complaints at all about it not being maintained, I understand the level of maintaining it needs and after jambos post I can see it’s a thankless task. I just wondered what people’s routines were now with the daily’s…I’m going to start posting as many comps as I can, the only way to try and get this group back to its glory days os for us all to try and post right?

    There are ways to get round some (but not all) of the missing/failed features but that is an inefficient use of time and does not increase the number of competitions available on the site
