    Jenny you keep going on about this and it is not true, I asked Virgin Red on Twitter when the original Rock codes were being shared. They said it was OK.
    Post 22
    Editing to explain, at that time as well as the vaults there were weekly draws and they said that entering codes from a game in the future may mean you missed out, but it was OK to share.
    I used codes and guessed codes, I was not disqualified and I won a prize and have won others since.
    Emily from Virgin Red Oked it as people were worrying about guessed codes.

    You maybe want to read your quoted tweets again.
    They all refer to a few guesses being OK and hints being OK.
    Any tweet from VirginRed on the subject of sharing codes, say it can lead to disqualification.

    from your own quoted tweet thread no less.
    https://twitter.com/VirginRed/status/904108285602693121

    Maybe one of you might pluck up the courage to actually ask red directly....No, I'll let you keep the illusion 'hiding' behind your screen name keeps you from being detected and ask for you.

    As I've said, I pop this info in when I see a few new faces, just so they're aware. The choice is yours afterwards.

    @ Jennybfree My nickname and email address on here is totally different from my Virgin Red info, which is different yet again from my info on Facebook. Can you explain to me just exactly how Virgin Red knows that I'm me on its app, FB or on here. Virgin Red's not got a link in to MI5 or the Kremlin has it? Jings I am really terrified now. I 'pluck up the courage' to handle things like my Dad dying. I don't 'pluck up the courage' if I give out the answer for a daft app on my phone. I'm sure you will let us all know the error of our ways soon enough. I am waiting with baited breath.

    Jenny, you have made 13 posts read them, they all are mainly dire warnings of disqualification. Can you maybe think about contributing a useful post in the future?
    I notice you are always on this thread of the 13 the vast majority have been negative and cannot see why as it is all so 'duff' for info as you said in one post! If you do not gain from any of the codes or answers, why are you on this thread?
    I am not quoting anything. I spoke to Emily direct and asked.
    She said no we see shares all the time, codes are guessed and shared, we cannot disqualify as the Twitter names are different anyway and we have to comply with CAP.
    I was worried as I had added a few guesses, she assured me it was fine.
    The tweet was a public one to highlight that we should not worry.
    Your pedestal is high, but the newcomers need no help, I am sure they are all grown-ups.

    Did you count the American vote? 3 from 13 a majority.
    Every post has been useful, maybe not to you personally but they will have been for someone.

    @thalia - The Last '500 holiday' vault is for the golden code winners. You'll need to claim a golden code to reach.

    I am well aware of that...............My point in mentioning it was a) It has just been added and b) Most of us haven't a hope in unlocking it!

    I have a query
    Somebody said you disqualify people for sharing answers and codes, can you let me know as Emily in September tweeted not to worry too much.
    Regards


    Virgin Red
    Hi we'd discourage you from sharing codes online with others. Hinting is okay but explicitly giving codes away spoils part of the fun ^SM

    Apr 17

    OK, thanks but if people share codes or quiz answers outright do you disqualify them and anybody who uses them? I see spoiling the fun. However I am asking about terms and conditions and regarding the CAP regulations, is it against the terms of the VR promotion to share answers please?

    To clarify; we're not going to disqualify based on explicitly sharing, however it's not in the spirit of competition and we'd ask that members keep this in mind before outright sharing answers with others ^SM

    So to clarify, Virgin Red will need to be on every forum in the world to find people who are providong the answers to their competitions to other people. Using their MI5, Police and KGB connections, they will then pay expensive lawyerd to apply to the High Court for warrants for each website. The warrants are required to be presented to the websites concerned and for those sites to give out the registered details of their forum members to Virgin Red, but just those giving out answers mind. This also assumes that the people on the forums who give out the answers have actually registered their correct details to start with. Then Virgin Red's lawyers will seek warrants for the arrest of everyone who's ever given out answers. Have I got it wrong, or is Jennybfree just being a teeny bit paranoid?

    I have no wish to Pm you, you change the reasons for your negative posts each time. I asked in Sept when the Rock Your World was on, I asked when the Kasbah was on and they just sent those messages to somebody because you said nobody had pluck.

    They do not as in 'do not' disqualify. I read terms and conditions and despite them, they randomly pick a winner also tweeted several times, they use a machine. A human does not go through trying to match Twitter/FB/MSE names, it would take forever.
    I am sure you will want to have the last word, feel free, but please your negative comments are not correct or helpful to new entrants, as they are incorrect.
    Sighs!

    In an attempt to clear this up Idid send a PM saying the following:

    "Hi I just wanted to ask a couple of questions.

    1.If I put a disclaimer about sharing codes atthe top of the thread will you please stop posting on it the same thing?

    2. How do you think virgin red would even be able to police the sharing of answers ?

    Thanks I look forward to your response."

    I will keep you guys updated.
    In the meantime lets just ignore the troll from now on and enjoy our thread!

    On that note does anyone understand the golden codes thing?
    How many people does it let enter it before it's invalid?
    How do we find the clue?
    And when is it released?

    Only one winner and only two competitions. One next Monday, it was guessed in the early hours of Monday I believe.
    If you read this week's one it gave a clue.
    The answer was on the website.

    Don't know about anyone else, but I was sent a PM by the troll saying she was done with the forum. She seemed to think I was being serious with my comments at Post 755! She said she didn't know why I was harping on about warrants, lol. Was a great laugh reading it. She's obviously had a sense of humour bypass. I'll miss all her repetitive posts.

    She!!!8217;s probably back using a different name or maybe she!!!8217;s joined a forum for people with NGSOH?

    Odd how some people only comment on THIS thread and only negatively.
