Can someone help please.The last three days when someone replies to me comments on Facebook I don't any notification. I checked my settings and there's nothing changed. But if someone tags me or likes a post of mine then I get notified. I really need the replies so I can see if I won something or not. Apparently others have this problem too. But some don't. I have reported the problem with facebook but nothing has happened.
28 Jun 9:04 PM
Happens to me too, seems to be a glitch with Facebook I think. I found sometimes it helps to turn on individual notifications for the actual post. You can do this be the drop down arrow. Hope this helps and good luck :)
28 Jun 9:42 PM
But why me and not to anyone else's account. It seems to have suddenly happen as well. I facebook searched Notifications not working and there are a few others with this problem. Is there anyway to get it back working again. If I turn on post notifcations I get notified for every persons comment on a post. It's annoying
29 Jun 10:16 AM
Sorry, I don't have any other answers :( Let me know if you figure it out

Wow, new site, I love new things, lucky I got my letter out of the trash/deleted folder for my 30 points, sneaky but good, much luck to all out there :) :) :)

@Di_D Good point +1 for the counter back. Total agree for a tablet or ipad the layout needs urgent attention.

@Lemond as always I will not make it to top 10, not once in 2 years... Would love to turn the ads off... I know they bring in revenue but they are annoying me.
29 Jun 10:58 PM
@Anna2077 Well I took my time to crawl to the top. X fingers for tomorrow I need touch. Might be a group of us sharing the top prize with any luck :)For this month you need a bunch to end up on the same scores. Realistically looking like need close to 165 for the top 10. If an average score manages to end up top 10 each month you could end up top 10 every 2nd month on average. More likely need 1/2 dozen points above average so 40% chance this month scores might be a touch lower with lots of comps ending on the same day and the new email bonus.
22 Jun 2:48 PM
Just received an email ' thank you so much for entering the competition' but regrettably this time you didn't win.. please enjoy the 20% voucher ... bah!Every Single Time they do it to me..
24 Jun 11:37 AM
@SunnyLife thank you! I need miracle..They pay 23yo same as they pay 40+ yo... it's just that some companies only staff their departments with 20 something.. some crap about culture fit.
24 Jun 12:00 PM
@Anna2077 Didn't you know that once you turn 30 your old...LOL...(I know its no laughing matter) it just seems to be the way of the world these days. Sad but true. They want fresh faced babies with the experience...what the?

@SunnyLife they want us to work till we are 70, but will not give us work .. strangely the whole department has to be in their 20s.. it's cultural fit.. what utter crapheard it too often

I did the Today show selfie and 25 words less to win a TV.But when I clicked submit the page just kept loading for 5 minutes and so I kept clicking submit and then it went to the Today show homepage.I'm worried my entry didn't go through or my picture didn't upload. J don't want to re-enter as it says one entry per person. But is pressing the submit button again will that corrupt the entry
21 Jun 9:53 PM
I decided to re submit and I got thank you the form was submitted successfullyLast time I got directed to the home page
23 Jun 1:28 PM
@Compbee Great and thanks I've got around to submitting an entry. Good Luck :)

21 Jun 4:53 PM
@bukfizz I didn't watch last night. I think I saw it during the add break towards the end on Sunday. It's a bit sneaky when they place them during the ad break. Some shows do that if televised Australian wide and have a state based comp where adverts are local. Usually for CODE words in TV comps I skip to around 35-45 minutes.

@SunnyLife my fav is competition guide, theres no comp like this, but a lot more comps.
14 Jun 7:36 AM
@ouzocoke yes I know the one. The first page is free then you have to pay to access the rest of the pages. Before you had to pay for it I used use that site and I've never won anything from that site.
15 Jun 7:14 AM
Same here SunnyLife - that's why I don't use that site any longer.

@Lemond @toxicgherkin is good!!I try 25 WOL but some of the answers that win don't even answer the question. FB are weird as people copy your answer and think that you will not find out
18 Jun 3:54 PM
@Anna2077 Well you got just to got to find your forte there are plenty different types of creative comps. :) Well if the comp is going around the Aussie comping circles the promoter is highly likely to be notified if in comper's opinions they think might be a breach of T&'Cs. Sometimes jump the gun and get "emotional" lol Yeh @toxicgherkin is always good or good at it. If it's a matter being persistent with the WOL/creative generally having better odds. :)
18 Jun 4:18 PM
@Anna2077 I only do the occasional WOL and probably not my forte. There's plenty of advice in the blogs and if check out previous winning examples can help you improve. It can be ongoing process. They can good fun and change of pace form the random draws. Overall they usually aimed at marketing the promoter and helps if have genuine interest in the promoter and/or prize for ideas. The Gruen Transfer was a great show for marketing ideas for WOL I miss the show. Part of what I aiming at is keeping an organised record of my own responses and possible the winning one as quick reference for future. It might improve myself you need to be wary the influence they might have on your own responses. Sometimes key words or ways to cut down on words so it's not so verbose. (unlike my responses) lmaoThe stage working atm giving it eyes to find comps to enter later. From there list those entered for checking back and/or bonus entries etc etc. I did that part few months back. Note to myself must remember to add in features for storing WOL/creative comps.

06 Jun 12:07 AM
@admin Regarding the guessing game. I think someone's made a change to the guessing game where you can now accidentally enter a duplicate guess within the week :(. I'm fairly sure previously it used to warn if a duplicate guess was entered. Doh!
06 Jun 11:38 PM
@Brookemaree93 lol. You can only hope. If I'm lucky I've entered your lucky number on the same day at 12:00 am and 1 second . :)They haven't changed it to a "fairer" system where one entry is selected from random from all entries that picked the number?
06 Jun 11:52 PM
@gaseja Interesting, so getting this right on Sunday you attempted to enter a number which gave you the notification it there was a duplicate guess? That sounds highly irregular I haven't come across that "feature". Did you try and reenter the same number with success?The only other possible cause for allowing my duplicate number there might of been a space before the number. I copied and pasted the numbers from last week. If that was the case it may be doing a text comparison instead of a numeric comparison.
07 Jun 11:25 AM
@Lemond I typed it in twice as I didn't believe it because I only had to cross check 2-3 numbers. I gave up and typed in another number.

Hi,Just wondering which icon is the one to use for arranging a subscription to the newsletter. Is it via the Chat facility? In the My Account section there is what seems to be a link to newsletter subscriptions but this gave me a sad to see you go message.Regards
16 Jun 7:12 AM
@admin We don't need another email,We don't need another way to your home.All we want is relief for irritable email syndrome!Regarding Newsletter Points - Random newsletters during the month will have a leaderboard link to earn you X number of pointsWell I guess it's no surprise few actually read the emails even if they managed to find them. Be better off sending the information via the new messaging facility or making it available via the site. Let me get this straight. You want to encourage members to go their emails, find it and then link back to the site. All I saying I know where I can find this site 99.9% of the time. :)
17 Jun 10:46 PM
@Lemond I am treating the emails from competitions.com.au as newsletters.
18 Jun 10:09 AM
@Donek Thanks finally found emails that look like your posted image which are "news letters"It might help if they actually put that in the subject "News Letter"I was wondering where the red highlighted "FEATURED COMPETITIONS" originated from. For the site's competition page it's highlighted in black. It appears news letters are aiming to highlight featured comps which are already displayed on the site which was confusing.Still.. my feedback why the hell encouraging members to check for a random email which maybe buried in the haystack of emails/spam. I hope this random x points from news letters is referring to just required to click on the competition postings as usual. It's not well explained in the new leader board rules. If it's generated by clicking on links in the email its most likely going to be a world of pain and another potential source of issues. Is there or will there be a new section in the your points for the month to show this?The ultimate aim is to visit the site and if the information is "important" enough it should be to able to complete the "task" via the site. They could utilise the new messaging feature for newsletters if can't easily display them on the site. Or provide a new menu option for newsletters. At least more likely to find this "news letter". .Give me Big Red Button please. lmao

Hi All,We've made some changes to the leaderboard today. Key Points- No more Birthday Points - Prizes will be awarded in CompBux- You will be able to earn points via the newsletter, so be sure you're subscribed, if not, contact us via the icon below.Guessing Game will also be transitioning to CompBux next week.What this means is that you will be able to just enter your PayPal email address to redeem CompBux to PayPal cash, at the moment this is in the Survey Section, it will be to moved to a more obvious place this month.At first we will run this manually on our end, then it will be automated and instantaneous!We will introduce new ways to earn CompBux, such as entering comps or earning cash back on your purchases, so you will not be forced to do Surveys, although we are in talks to get more surveys paying more CompBux.Admin

Hi Compers!Are you swarmed with emails and newsletters because of comping? Here's how to manage it:http://blog.competitions.com.au/tips/inbox-zero-and-how-to-achieve-it/Thanks!Nicole
29 May 8:17 PM
So how is that fare if I have received 40 less points than others?
31 May 10:14 PM
Hmm one thing noticing is lack of lower scores expected around the 135-150 range. Struggling to find many, I think should expect a handful at least. That will have to check on average roughly how many scores would expect in that range. Possible due to the multiple fixes have pushed those active members off the leader board which usually show up. Might be hinting the distribution might be skewed towards the higher end this month caused by abnormalities with the random daily points. Might also explain why top scores are a touch on the high side.
01 Jun 9:21 AM
Can u please explain all that one more time lol
01 Jun 3:11 PM
@Brookemaree93 lmao. Well the odds of any two members winning in a month is 1 which was the what @ouzocoke overlooked. Argh worse thing knowing there're so many June birthday's about. I've got Buckley's chance this month. :(Note for next year note there didn't appear to be many if any May birthdays for the active members.
28 May 5:59 PM
I just dont get it, I enter the guessing comp every day and also every competition everyday and am always way behind the leaders, so I do not know what I am not doing. At present 41 points behind the leader. ????????
29 May 1:16 AM
The critical factors that determined the winners are: *The total amount of random daily points you've accumulated throughout the month. (1-10 points per day) *Also whether it's a members birthday month. +25 bonus pointsNote:An additional 25 birthday bonus are awarded at then end of the month. (Despite stating on the leader board page: 25 points - Rewarded on your birthday (just before mid-night AEST). It's was changed a few months ago to be rewarded right at the end of the month around 11:30pm AEST)Due to the late addition of the birthday bonus the leader board may change right at end of the month. Good chance this month a couple of the current leaders, "might/likely" just end high enough to be unaffected if any birthday members about. To have a genuine chance :Visit the home page every day to obtain your random daily pointsDo the guessing game every day to obtain it's bonus View all the competitions that were posted within the current month before they expire. Also for the new comps posted not expired in the current month viewed before the end of month to count. It appears that you understand all that from logging each day etc. Comparing your score to the leaders.The leaders have 192 daily random points and you 152. Also you've currently view one less competition that was posted this month making it total or 41 points behind the leaders. So it all adds up no missed points from any of the guessing game issues this month. You haven't been crossing your fingers and toes hard enough for the "lucky" daily "random" points. :)

Those with 22 games played have received 50 points 'Guessing Game Fix 1' with the assumption they were affected.Those with less than 22 games placed have received 100 points 'Guessing Game Fix 2' with the assumption they were all affected.Any issues, feel free to use the little icon on the bottom right of your screen to chat with us.Thanks
25 May 8:40 PM
@Lemond Not really sure about being a favourite member! Just did my guessing game later that day after they had done fix 2 and must have thought i missed out.Have been told they will do another fix and look into this as I have had a look and some other people have also got 50 extra points too.

18 May 5:15 AM
Weird just caught a short period where the site appeared down. On top of that it appears it's only showing only 2 competitions for me posted today. From the looks of things that's wasn't the case for some members.
19 May 9:38 PM
@spyglass well I just know from my current total daily points if got a realistic chance. The average is 5.5 points per day ie. for 31 days an average score is 171.For top 3 looking around 192ish-206+. So 206/31*19 = 126 if around 120+ at this stage in with a realistic chance. :) Easiest way to look at it how many points you're currently above average. 19*5.5 days is 105 and require on average about +25 before getting too excited. Allowing for a couple of birthdays looking at requiring 171+25 = 196+ plus. If it's your birthday month almost a formality. Let me see your on 127 +22 above average currently, so good chance of top 3. Still need slightly above average till end of the month. The downside you're overdue for bad week after about 6 weeks punching consistently above average scores. lmaoMaybe with all the current mess the top score might end up a touch lower this month. i.e. members not realizing didn't get a bonus due.Depending how many birthdays about be good news for them. i.e. might still sneak in top 3 with close to average to touch below.Argh I'm out of luck need around 90 points from 120 available. It's probably not going happen this month.

I'm annoyed at a certain person who for nearly every competition they enter they write my son had leukaemia and past away.No disrespect to her. But I hate to use that to win a competition. My grandmother past away and I had Uni exams during that week. I could have been exempt but I don't think my grandmother would be proud if I did that.
18 May 10:48 AM
I agree with you with this. Amount of times I enter a Facebook competition and see all these sob stories annoys me too. I understand it's a tough time for them but at the same time we all experience different types of grief from losing a love one, losing a job, given bad news etc but we don't use that to win a prize through sympathy. Unfortunately bad times are part of life...
21 May 1:55 PM
I don't enter those sorts of competitions but it would be interesting to see if the same person has won something with the same story on more than one occasion (and also how long ago the unfortunate event would have occurred - assuming they are being truthful as well)

Hi there was a glitch with the servers yesterday, they had to be restarted and the time didn't update correctly.. Seems only a handful were affected. Please post below so we can investigate and rectify.
18 May 2:15 PM
@admin hmm looks like time stamps are back to UTC i.e. 10 hours behind. So... place bets another morning of missed guessing game points anyone logging guesses before 10am. Probably also when the random daily points will be available for May 19th.
20 May 11:17 PM
Mmm, same here, missed more guessing game bonus points, so short 2 lots of guessing game bonus points now :-(
21 May 6:16 AM
Same for me too I have missed 2 lots of guessing game bonus points
03 May 11:00 PM
@admin @Zedmin, I didn't receive random daily points and guessing game points for this morning. Please remedy all affected members' accounts, from when the issue arose - yesterday - and continuing this morning at least. Thank you.
06 May 10:46 AM
Still no points reconciliation.... :(
06 May 7:24 PM
@toxicgherkin Patience. If they're rectifying the guessing game issue similar to previous months, it appears they will obtain a list of members affected and get around to adding a patch to guessing game bonus. Hopefully it's done ASAP and enough time before the end of the month so if anyone gets overlooked and ask for more.
06 May 7:28 PM
@toxicgherkin Overall they need a way to avoid this inconsistency between guesses registered and it's bonus points. "Hints" that using a calculated field which makes checking and reconstructing the bonus points difficult.
03 May 10:27 PM
@adminIn case members aren't aware it doesn't appear the random daily points are being generated and added to the total for today. Placing bets it should be ok after 10:00 am i.e. midnight UTC. Try visiting the home page after 10:00 am to obtain the random daily points. X fingers. The guessing game seems to be fine for today. @Adim ps I didn't get yesterdays bonus points for completing the guessing game
03 May 10:38 PM
@wolverine See the previous post/replies. I've made it perfectly clear there are there are many members effected. Other members could do a quick post in the reply to help @admin identify those concerned. :)
