    It’s doing my bl00dy head in! Any tips? I’ve found a comp that looks familiar but I’ve searched the url, the prize and the company and it’s not bringing anything up!
    Love comping, hate trolls.

    I use a Chrome plugin called Link History to help me identify comps I've already entered as I often comp across multiple sites. I have it set to show a link in bright orange if I've visited it before, to avoid visiting the same page twice. It's not foolproof as some sites reuse the same URLs, but I've learnt which those are over time.

    I'm not finding a couple of comps I posted last night.
