    Want to post a comp 13th Jul 17 at 6:42 PM
    Hi there, I would like to post a competition on here. It's from Facebook and i'm not sure how to link to it, or describe it without using a link to it, which i have just discovered i'm not allowed to use. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Nick

    hi, reposting
    help again if it helps..

    Comping Guide - Getting Started & Other FAQs
    Posting Comps

    1 How can I find comps to post on here, I!!!8217;ve entered loads & want to give some back?
    6 How do I post a comp on here?

    Firstly, do a thorough search to ensure it is not already on MSE.
    Check you are in the Competitions Time Forum & then click !!!8216;New Thread!!!8217;, from the link at the top or bottom of any main forum page.
    A new page is displayed to fill information about the comp you want to post.
    Put the date at the beginning of the title box, & please use the Forum standard, below.

    E: XX/XX, For Example, E: 02/04 Win a .....

    This makes things a lot easier for the BGs & Compers (like you) to find comps ending. If the comp ends within 12 months then it is fine to put the dd/mm date as explained above. If you have a rare comp that has more than a year to the end date, please stick to the posting convention above, put a space & put the year in brackets - but only if it is MORE THAN 12 months ahead.
    E: 02/04 (2018) Win....... Only if comp is more than 12 months from ending.

    If you can!!!8217;t see the closing date for a comp in the T & C or on the webpage please estimate an end date. Without an end date on the thread title it will be moved into the Game Over sub forum prematurely, which would be a waste of your effort posting it. If you had to estimate the end date pop that into your post so if, later on, the website add an end date another member can highlight the new info.
    E: 30/06 (?) Win
    The Thread Title needs a short description of the prize that can be won, For Example, Holiday to Tenerife.
    If the comp is entered by a specific means or there's an age / location restriction, it's helpful to put that in the title in brackets.

    Some of examples of this could be:
    Rafflecopter = (RC)
    Gleam = (GL) or (GLEAM)
    Email = (Email)
    Twitter = (TW)
    Facebook = (FB)
    Location restriction = (inside M25) or (town name) etc
    Under 16s = (U16)

    you can post the comp without the link with all the details as new users need to make between 10/20 posts/threads before
    they can add live links,
    someone will soon come along & help/add the live link for all
    on your thread.
    9. No Advertising Of Own Websites. This site is free from advertising. Posts on any board considered to be advertising goods, services and/or companies will be removed. This includes the posting of a competition from your own site or from a site that you are employed by. We also do not allow advertising via PM. Examples of this can include anything from a specific sales post or a link to your own website in which you attempt to sell something to someone offering their holiday home to forum members. Unfortunately we cannot allow any advertising of any description no matter how honourable the intention.

    new forum users can't initially post links. This is to help deter spammers advertising on our forum. The point at which forum users will be able to post links is "top secret" for the same reason
