ITV winners

Options
Hello.......It's literally been years since I was on here (I was a regular comper about 10 years ago). It's all change now this site. 

There used to be a itv winners thread that i was never lucky enough to get my name on. Is that not a thing anymore? That used to give me inspiration to keep entering. 

In my new job i think i should have some spare time to comp every now and then.

    Hello @AubreyMac and welcome back to the MSE Forum :smile:

    In these more privacy-conscious days we no longer permit the sharing of winners' names on the forum.

    Hopefully you'll find other inspiration on the forum to encourage you to get back in the comping habit.

    That was waayyy back when it was free web entry and there were regular winners - now it is postal there are far fewer free  entries than there used to be and even more paid ones so potentially far fewer winners.

    There are also far fewer competitions with not only the daily competitions generally gone but many last several weeks and are combined across several shows.

    Real Deal for example used to be daily then became weekly and can run several weeks at a time now so say a 30 week run that could have had 150 winners might now have 10 and far fewer competitions to win combined with far fewer "free" entries makes wins very unlikely

    It was individual winners posting about their wins (just like posts in the Iwon section but on a list) so nothing to do with others posting winners names

    Thanks for your replies. 

    Even when i was last on here the itv were already phasing out the free online votes so i was doing postcards. 

    I'm preparing to move homes in the next month or so (all being well) and found a box of blank postcards which took me right back. I'm wondering if fewer people entering means i now have more chance of winning!

    Far fewer free entries not fewer total entries. (and now free only by not counting the value of a stamp)
