    It appears you can no longer type the above 2 words as the forum now bans them
    However they are OK if yo quote them - strange .... maybe someone PM a board guide and ask why these words are now being censored

    this may help explain..

    8) T-A-B do not show that you have previously entered a competition (after you have exited your current session) and there is nothing that stops you from entering again. The terms state "we will accept only one entry per registered user. If more than one entry for the same issue is received, we will accept the first entry only". This means you will not be disqualified if you accidently enter a second time, and if you are unsure whether or not you have entered, or whether your entry has been accepted, it is OK to enter the comp to be certain.
