Live competition updates

Submitted by SuperluckyDi on Thu, 2013-01-17 11:21

Have you noticed something different about us this week? We're now adding competitions LIVE to the site! Previously, we would always add new listings throughout the day - and then these would all appear at midnight as the next day's 'New Competitions'. These competitions could be viewed via a 'sneak peek' link on our New Comps page, but would not feature in search results until they went live the next day.

As of Sunday 13th January we now add competitions to the 'New Competitions' as soon as we find or approve them. This offers a number of advantages:


  • Competitions submitted to will be approved and added to today's competitions as soon as possible - you won't need to wait until the next day to find them listed on the site.


  • You'll know about daily entry competitions and Instant wins as soon as WE do - which means you can get winning sooner!
  • We can now list more of the short entry comps that close within a day or two and give you more time to get your entries in
  • We'll have more competitions listed and more comps to search through!
  • There will now be new competitions added to on a Sunday - perfect for weekend compers!

The only downside to our live updates is for the compers that like to do each day's New Competitions. If you try to do that now, you may get confused because of the continuous additions - if you'd prefer to work through a compete list, we recommend working through yesterday's new competitions instead! However, with the new Personal Competition Tracker you should be able to keep track of what you're entered and what you haven't entered easily, so hopefully our live updates will prove beneficial to everyone (including us!)

We're actually working on introducing a competition count to the Personal Tracker, and hoping to get it sorted later this year!
