I'm trying to work out how to make my instagram comment as creative as possible however not be 'hidden by instagram'
I saw a competition and write a nice rhyming poem but it gets 'hidden by instagram' along with a few other comments I seen by others

I'm not sure what triggers it

BEWARE EVERYONE of this scam As said I agreed a payment of $3 They took $15 and then also $578 from my account and I had to chase my card company to stop the FRAUDULANT charges I think COMPETITIONS COM AU should be careful about what they put on their web page as this was from that ad it is a SCAM and is still above offering a prize from Shopsaver

I've just completed a survey about current movies and going to the cinema. I completed the survey in its entirety only to get a message that said I'd screened out. This is a huge annoyance and frustration - how can you screen out if you've completed the entire survey? When this happens I'm reluctant to do any other surveys. Does this happen to anyone else?

Anyone else have the problem with the Win 500 Compbux 24 Hour Guessing game where if you only enter with the single free guess the next day in the results it tells you "No Guesses were Recorded". I have had this problem for at least the last month. If you enter with more than one guess it seems to be ok.

A comp is currently being promoted here on Competitions.com that is run by Hiddup where you can win a $15000 Flight centre voucher. In the T&C, I found this condition.

"If it is found that an entrant has used a third party (including an online competition site) to enter The Competition, the entry will be deemed invalid.

Does this include Competitions.com? If so, why would they have such a rule? What's their problem with people entering from this type of website?

Here is the above-mentioned comp.

There's still something very wrong with the Watch _ videos to gain bonus points in the Guessing Game. You can hot the button several times and nothing happens, so it's almost impossible to earn any bonus points. On rare occasions, you can get through the 5 and 10 levels with much perseverance and lots of clicking and hoping, but after those levels, which are not working properly, given how many time they need trying, there seems no way to get further. This was theoretically fixed, but it's still not working. Very frustrating.
