    How you are informed of wins.. 12th Aug 07 at 1:16 PM
    Thought it might be a good idea for a thread that shows you how the different websites or prize promoters etc usually let you know that you have won. Ill post the ones I know here so if there are anymore etc let me know and Ill update the original post. If its not a good idea Ill quite happily delete the thread but thought some people might find it useful and didnt think it had already been done. I dont know which ones you have to check the website for and dont know for ones I havent won through! Couldnt decide how to put them so have put them alphabetically by website/promoter

    Finding out you've won
    Just wondering, once you've won are you more likely to be emailed and told you've won or just find something turn up in the post one day? something i've been wondering since I started comping!

    Sometimes you get an email or a phone call, other competitions the prize just turns up in the post, and/or has to be signed for.

    On Twitter they either mention you in a tweet or DM you. On FB you're best to join one of the announcement groups as you might not see the post announcing the winners but someone in the group will tag you. You can also google your name & "well done" or "congratulations". You do sometimes get emailed too.

    Good luck.

    11 Are there any sites, from experience, which are likely to generate lots of spam?
    There are a few which have come to our collective attention as sites that, when used for comps, seem to generate lots of unwanted postal, email & phone call attention.
