    Hi all, don't post much but read your comments regularly Sorry if this has been asked before but quick question... If I win something and choose somewhere in the list for it to fit, can I go back later and change it if I win something else? Ie. I've just won a Ben 10 talking action figure, so this could go in toy or battery operated etc. If I put it in toy, and later win another toy, can I swap it to battery operated or is that not the idea?
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit, but wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    No. The idea is that you pick what to count it as and it stays there, so choose wisely. Congrats on your win.

    Click2Wins
    I've never really bothered with click2wins, but this challenge does strange things to people I had time on my hands this afternoon so thought I'd take a look.

    Seriously, how do people manage to do hundreds of these blumin' things?! It's taken me an age just to do 35, they run so slowly on my computer

    Am I missing something? What's your secret?

    You click one you want to enter watch a 15 second video, you are taken back to the page at the top it says Congratulations you have been entered, you scroll down and enter the next one. Rinse and repeat you should easily be able to do 100 in an hour.

    What most of us do is open all the ones we want to open from a certain mag, then set all the video away then go back to the beginning and count them as we close them down.

    I do differently to mansey. I open all the links in my bookmark in new tabs, so I enter one prize at a time rather than one mag at a time.

    Did any of the challengers win a C2W in February? Or was that an epic fail?
