    Have you ever.... 11th Nov 17 at 7:38 PM
    Have you ever read a competition post and thought "I have no idea what that is"?
    Gone to the competition page and read about the prize and thought "I still have no idea what that is"

    I do it all the time especially with techy stuff

    Or have you ever read a competition page and not entered because you thought it was something you couldn't use?
    I have been ignoring the Tail and Mane competitions for ages because I thought it was horse stuff

    Roll-On Deodorant - I had no idea what this was, but apparently it's a large ball thing that you roll about with your armpits. There are some weird sports around these days.

    LOL - I do this lots. Mostly, I don't enter, because my instincts say it's something I wouldn't use, but sometimes I enter anyway, just for the halibut

    Hi. Martin has asked me to tell you I'm a (novice) Board Guide on the Competitions, Site Feedback and Campaigns boards. I volunteer to help get your forum questions answered and keep the forum running smoothly. Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an abusive or illegal post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with abuse).
