Anyone know why i am always last on leaderboards

Mamma
14 Dec 10:48 AM

Ask Anna lol

Keep going Mamma, you could catch me, I am averaging 3.57 per day this month so far, sitting on a massive 50 for daily points, with no days missed :-(

Try2win
14 Dec 9:01 PM

i just have no idea why i am so behind

Mamma
15 Dec 10:21 AM

@moreofachance Lmao that might get you on the naughty list.

Lemond
15 Dec 10:51 PM

@Mamma Well unless your about sitting in around 200+ position you're far from last position.

Why not higher on the leader board then potentially could be?
It appears you might of missed a couple of days of the guessing game i.e 50 x day of the month it should be 750 points as at Dec 15th. 50 points is a significant amount and missing even one day will almost place you at the bottom of the active members around 35th+. There's approximately 35-45 active members on average each month which varies.

You might get away with missing two days of 50 bonus and scrape into the top 50. That depends on how many active members. Active members meaning the ones the do everyday all the bonus and tick off most competitions posted before expiring and/or the end of month. Also including the other profile bonuses. If you don't do those you're don't have a genuine chance.

The daily process:
*Visit the home screen which generates your daily random bonus (1-10). That sorts out the active members.
*Do the guessing game every day (Prerequisite for having a genuine chance)
*Click on the enter for new competitions posted within the month before expiring or end of month (Can afford to miss a few thou it may make the difference of winning a prize if scores are tight.

I can't properly make out the left side of the screen properly so someone else will have to confirm if you have missed doing any of the daily guessing game. Also possible missed clicking on some competitions posted this month before they have expired.
Occassionally there may be glitches with the guessing game bonus not registering. If you notice it best to notify the admin ASAP on that day.

Apart from that X fingers and pray for a month of decent daily random scores as the leader board is predominately a random competition aimed at "active members".

Lemond
15 Dec 10:54 PM

@Try2win Oh gee that's fairly low. You'll probably end up around 130-120 random daily scores by the end of the month. It's possible to get lower thou from memory statistically would be extremely unlucky.
Hmm (206-55)/16 = about 9.4 for the rest of the month to win. Top 3 about 8.75.
So..... you probably already guessed it's highly unlikely will end up top 3. There's still a sliver of hope!

Recommendation: You're more likely win the eftpos competition this month. There's still time to get your entries in.

I "generally" find when doing crap on the leader board I win something nice in another competition. Congrats on your new phone.

Good Luck for next months leader board. :)

Lemond
15 Dec 11:43 PM

@Mamma I've just broken a string of twos with a 4 and a 7 today - one of my highest scores this month.
It just happens that way sometimes. Sigh
@moreofachance probably not a good time to be teasing Anna about her scores afterall it's coming up Christmas. Good luck with the rest of the Christmas comps.

fourleaf
16 Dec 11:15 AM

lol thanks guys, maybe i did miss some days :( oneday ill get to the top leader board. Do you get point for adding comps?

Mamma
16 Dec 10:51 PM

@Mamma I almost missed todays guessing game. Always a first. The hint that might of missed it was sitting in around 30th which is usually around where members who have missed one day sit on the leader board .

You get one point for every competition that was posted within the month that you click the enter button on. It then changes to viewed. You don't need to complete entry to the competition just have to viewed it. You should notice your score increase by one for each competition viewed since refreshed the page.

Good Luck for the following months.

@Try2win Argh I know they're multiplying. I'm still trying to find a few I really like. Haven't even checked my list from last year or done any serious searching. There's a few nice one's there.

Thanks, what a legend and thoughtful at this time of year, wow you don't muck around, Merry Christmas Comp GodFather!!!

Brookemaree93
07 Dec 11:34 PM

@Brookemaree93 lmao.
There's a lot more about and just adding a few as come across them. There's probably at least three times that circulating about. Only entering the few I'm interested and this year as my heart isn't in the advent comps. I'm feeling the better for i compared to last year. Unlikely I'll be stocking up another years supply of wine from Xmas comps. Plus I've still got a bottle of cognac to pick up won from a couple of weeks ago. :)

If I'm really organised by next year it really could be a exhausting list, even for the determined. That involves a integregrating a couple of databases and programs that are halfed baked. That's on hiatus with PC issues making things close to impossible the last few months. That was aiming to at the next stage before specifically for this years advent comps. Still a lot of work to do on that and taking it slowly. See where it is in 6 months time.

The various sites help and provide enough to keep most busy. It depends on how selectively looking for specific prizes.
If they're well circulated everyone man and his dog is also entering andl doing your own searching can be rewarding. Argh a couple of times this year came close to 50/50 chances for decent prizes. Thou once you start having to reqularily search about the legwork gets time consuming . It's so easy to get distracted by the mass of competitions while exploring.

The "GodFather" would be @toxicgherkin. I'm still an apprentice with trying to hack through this jungle of comps.

Good Luck.

True, have not seen The Don, sorry, The Tox for a while, Trevsta was my life influence for starting after he won New York Beyoncé trip and stacks of other stuff so watching his mad adventure gave me the bug :) Good Luck

Brookemaree93
08 Dec 11:45 PM

@Brookemaree93 They're still about. I'll send some of that good karma for the eftpos comp. It's been rubbing off on a few nice contacts :) I won the eftpos again.

Wow Trevsta 's NY trip win sounds amazing. I had a small adventure today (St Kilda pier) was for a a loot drop for XBoxes etc. They did one for Melbourne, Sydney and Brissy. To my suprise was dropped really close to me. Sadly I was too slow. It went within 10 min. I'm and about 5 away by tram. Well was a exciting change of pace for a competitoin. I havent run down a tram in ages.

Yeah comps can be fun once in a while and some amazing opportunities. At the moment I'm happy with the small cash wins accumulated this year. Overall not a bad year it's been majority cash/coles myers vouchers around $600 which have come in handy.

Good Luck hope the XMas comps are going well.

I think you're given me too many points. I logged in sometime after 1.00 am and I'm sure I was awarded points for visiting the page. I've just logged in again to check out any new competitions and my score jumped up again without doing anything to earn a point. Can you check for me please. Thanks.

I've never come across that scenerio where thought got too many points. Most likely it was daily random points for visiting the home page which when refreshed the page later on showed up on the your total. I'd place bets someone had a long night and seeing double. :)

Hope everyone is doing well for the XMAS comps. So far haven't got into the groove for diving in for the XMAS rush and will start easing into a few today. Do we have a post for a quick list of any the 12 days of XMAS? Would be appreciated due to some technical difficulties making reading challenging.

I had more 1's and 2's last month then ever, plus missed out on 50 of the guessing game ... and @spyglass you've been in top 3 plenty of times .. I've never been there.

They are keeping me at low numbers '2' .. I raised the question and they will keep on giving me low numbers as punishment by the looks of it..

And since the game wasn't adjusted and I missed out on 50 points I only get one guess this month...

@Try2win I have one guess for the second day in a row as well .. I've lost faith .... Since I've joined in 2014 there has been nothing .. not even bonus points on my birthday when it was my birthday ... it's only meant for some not all .. some complain and their points improve .. I mention it and I get mostly numbers under 5....

07 Dec 8:55 AM

@admin
Was there any news regarding last months leader board winners?
I suspect no members in the top 10 from last month received their compbux prize.

The issue of one guess for the guessing game seems to be a related with the leader board results from last month that haven't been processed.. That determines for the following month if members have single or double guesses.

01 Dec 7:16 AM

@Anna2077 I think @moreofachance trick this year is to pull those 10's out of their ... hat. I'm due for my fair share of 10's. After my week 3 start didn't think would make the top few. Had like a total of less then 10 from 4 days in a row.

@purplesp8y Must of been real unlucky it looked around a week to go they were going to win by a furlong.

Surely this month @Anna2077 your luck will turn around. Well any month soon...

@Lemond tell someone who will believe you ... if the game was fair then everyone would get a chance .. but since only few always win ... and when you don't get the scores that you are entitled to like guessing game... the game is thrown ... no point in trying... if the game will be fair then daily points will be removed ..

Cheer up @Anna2077, I had a second and two thirds in three years and have never had a first on the leaderboard. Scores can be disheartening but try focusing on the comps. Quitx are giving away 100's of free movie tickets, it sounds like you deserve a good movie...

@fourleaf I joined in 2014.. my best in all the years was being at #5. I didn't get all the guessing game scores and the admin didn't''t bother to fix it. I don't enter many comps .. only what I need

Some have worked out how to make the game work for them to be always on top ..

I get to see movies via subscriptions ..

Posted a message in the forum and was ignored and this month I only get one 'lucky' number guess ..

Anna2077
01 Dec 1:17 PM

@Anna2077 I am hearing you loud and clear.I am lucky if I even get 1 10 a month and get so many 1,s and 2,s it's rediculouus.I also notice many of the same names are often in the top 10 each month every time.I have been a member for 5 years and never have been in top 5 but did win the guessing game once soon after I joined.I notice my points are always pretty close to yours

Winner1
01 Dec 1:19 PM

@Anna2077 All members get the same chance EVERY month..

Probably one of the biggest influences are the simple "skill" components for the major bonus. eg Complete profile, add a pic and do the daily guessing game. Seems like there're hundreds of "floating" members which don't do that. It's up to them to be active and complete those simple requirements to maximise their chances.

It's possible I could of have been top if had been on the ball this month or out of the top bunch if too many slip ups. There wasn't much in it between first and fifth. When you finally get lucky with the daily points to be a genuine chance it helps if maximise your chances as possible. From there you just X your fingers and patiently wait for your lucky daily points to come up.

@Anna2077 Congratuations on your extraordinary spiritual insight and such ironic comedic timing of your gift. May it result in an infectious mass outbreak of good Karma throughout the comping land. Thank you for providing such a thoughtful gift which becomes pure comedy gold in when in reference to my blessed week. If I wasn't also distracted sharing your enthusiasm, your statement could be interpreted to representate the opposite of the embodiment of good Karma. We can only presume you weren't intentional attempting to offend the antaryami who resides inside us? That would only be contrary to your unqualified wisdom you were trying to protray.

You also must of been so overcome with your rush to spread all the good Karma you invertly made some tiny oversights. You wouldn't want to confuse your new followers. Possibly you intended to state "Bad Karma results in you stop winning" etc . To help you achieve your karmic cleanse you'll need to differentiate Karma, good Karma and bad Karma. Karma is a spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions influence the future. It encompass both good and bad Karma. Given that divine knowledge you could soon be on the start and first step of the journey to cleanse any residing bad Karma

What masterful comedic timing and exceptional irony and your statement is on so many previous states of existence, which has decided my fate with another unexpected future of a good Karma existence. Either I've been courting good Karma or her twin sister, Fortuna this week, it's impossible to tell them apart! I'll thank them both for the divine week for their well appreciated and timely gifts.

The first gift was from one my favourite sponsors, Eftpos. This was due to surprised influx of good Karma and despite only having submitted very few entries an unexpected individual greatly attributed to my fortunate resulting gift. This could of been the result of attributing the last few months due towards their site in my own usual and instinctive way. One thousand blessings in return towards that person . :)

The second gift will be from our generous competition site that provided another timely gift

The third divine gift this week was a Laser X 817 Crash Cam. Thou I don't drive this gift may spread untold Karma as coincidental, or was it good Karma?, a good mate that I hadn't heard from for ages unexpected dropped by, of all days the first day Comparmageddon or as I refer to it, forgive me "The 12 days of Hell" I cherish their unexpected divine timing and helping out when most needed. They have exceptiional timing for materializing on the exact same day when I was previously gifted such genourous items.

Good Karma and/or Fortuna have been extrermely appreciated this week and possibly sensed how urgently I require a new computer. These gifts will help achive my nobel goal and will enable the continuation of spreding your wisdom.

@Anna2077 Thank you for your best wishes. You've blessed again in multitudes, beginning with yet another 9 to start my day off. How do you do it?

Appologies If I didn't adorn thee soul to your satisfaction. I was overwhelmed by the mass of good karma you sent. The timing of your divine message must of come directly from the heavens to have such a spontaneous result. Shouldn't we share your success and aspire how to obtain such divine powers, so that we all can pass on such good Karma at will?

Your wisdom shows no bounds. Is that the third step you're referring to about one must claim responsibility? We would all love to know how you progressesed so quickly in your karmic cleansing.

@Brookemaree93 Thanks.
Thou I was posting due the timing and comic irony. Just some timely examples of how good karma can be unexpectly returned. :)

If wisdom equates to donig way too many competitions there's proabably quite a few lessons learnt. That and observing what goes on in the comping circles. Some of it gets very murky especially voting competitions.

The pitfalls they're a hell of a lot of comps about once start digging about. I could spend the whole day just checking various sources worldwide. Sometimes discover some great off radar competitons. I've cut back doing that this year until complete a more efficient way to manage it.

It's easy to get overwhelmed by the vast number of competitions. This year I've cut right back and basically was only doing a handful of comps and the leader board for most of year. Only in the last couple of months been lot more active with urgency of requiring to replace my PC which is approching unusable. The wins have helped towards it's budget and currently stuck waiting for components to be in stock soon.

There's a few members that have great succes and my i impression they focus on their various fortes. Those usually have lower entries and great prizes. That's something I'd like to work on.

Good Luck.

@Try2win I think my New Years resolution is don't mention the leaderboard and daily score . I hope Karma takes that in jest as I mentioned a few days ago my favourite number this year seems to be 9. Had 3 so far this month.

@moreofachance lmao. There's probably a few times I've been superstitious with the daily scores. Like do I spoil a nice day and unwrap it early or wait. It can be nice pick me up ... well at least for one day. It can cruel comp with the slow motion draw over a month, especially when it comes to the last few days and have a chance.

@Anna2077 Was to prompt you to maybe reflect why it appears you default to the need to projective negative karma. Possibly there're some underlying issues clouding your thoughts. It doesn't excuse what could be considered "trolling" at times.

Maybe the best XMAS gift could be reflecting and obtaining some insights into Karma and use that knowledge to achieve your goals like your dream job.

Facebook competitions generally don't get them. If only I knew exactly which ones are the result of those phishing emails be great. There are some types I try and avoid, especially the ones involving dozens of yes/no responses.

On that note I should clean out my junk folder. I seem to accumulate a couple hundred each day. The trend lately is bitcoin trader ones and the usual other types.

17 Nov 3:28 PM

@heidiho73 Great tips.
I find using bookmarks is a good fall back method for keeping track of competitions entered. Notepads I find are ineffective apart from maybe brainstorm creative comps as virtually all comps are online entry.

If stick to using one browser for entering comps and bookmark before hitting the submit then append the closing date in a consistent manner eg "01/09/2017" it helps for checking back and avoiding double entry.
i.e. the bookmark will show up when you revisit the page. This has help numerous times. Thou on the odd occassion you might find promoters reusing the same link.

For various social media, daily entry etc I separate into separate folders etc month. The limitations are when a new month rolls over and got comps spanning months it gets a bit cumbersome. Also appending to the start of the book a consistent date in the format above allows for sorting of bookmarks easily.

Most likely what preference you use comes down to the volume and types of comps entered.

Good Luck

I am trying so hard this month to crack the top ten. Even though I entered everything I'm eligible for and used all the newsletter links, no joy. So this month head down, click click clack! I am not aiming too high, just slowly sneak up a bit each month. I need to learn how to add comps to help everyone else. I have read some people are really frustrated at their leaderboard results. Don't give up, then you'll never get there. If there is a state that has a lot of state only comps some months that is hard to beat. Just remember there are a lot of us trying to be on top and don't forget it's fun having a challenge. Good luck this month everyone.

heidiho73

@heidiho73 to get a point for a listed comp you only need to view it, not enter it. So it does not matter what states are eligible to enter the comp for you to get a point.

spyglass
07 Nov 2:58 PM

Hello there @heidiho73!
Nice to hear from you! Yes, remember as @spyglass says that you only need to click on the comps on this site so they change colour to "viewed" to get your point. No need to view or enter all the comps in the newsletters to get points as mostly they're comp summeries or reminders of comps already listed here unless you want to of course. :) Hope you do all the other things like updating your profile for extra permanent points as well...looking forward to seeing you on the leaderboard soon!

fourleaf
11 Nov 11:17 AM

@heidiho73 As long as you complete the major bonus which are mandatory to have a genuine chance you're in the running.
-You will NEED to do every day the guessing game. (50 points)
-NEED to click on the email newsletter bonus. (30 points)
-Visit the home page daily where the competitions are listed to obtain your daily random points (1-10)
-Tick off most if not all competitions posted during the current month before they EXPIRE or before the end of the month.

As the guessing game has a bonus worth 50 points each day, if miss a day statistically is improbable for a top 10. Still may/likely make the Top 50 if miss only one day. That depends how many active members. Trend seems can miss one miss day currently.

For the newsletter email bonus also virtually mandatory (30 points). It will be fairly obvious when that occurs. I.e. Should notice a jump in the leaderboard scores or a dramatic drop in your leaderboard position. Best to log into this site first the click on the bonus link within that newsletter email. The hard part maybe locating that email.

Make sure visit the home page each day to collect your daily random points. Just a note for the first day of the month to activate the points system first click on a new comp posted then refresh the main comp page. That's an annoying feature which catches out new members.

Only comps posted this month count towards the comps viewed tally. You can miss a few comps posted without too much effect. Thou could make the difference between few positions at the end of the month. It appears you might of missed a couple of competitions so far posted this month. You can use the filter by entered which will display competitions you haven't clicked. Note if was posted this month and already expired it shouldn't be displayed.

Good luck :)

11 Nov 12:09 PM

Thank you so so much for that comprehensive answer. I am wondering now about the newsletter bonus. Why would it be hard to find the email?

heidiho73
14 Nov 11:26 AM

@heidiho73 Argh ... when you got 80,000+ emails between a couple of accounts finding those elusive important emails, especially the winning ones gets "challenging".

Lesson is first create a separate comping account then don't then decide to switch back. You get twice as many spam emails. Thou the advantage is you can spot those easier when get them twice.

Yeah found a winning email tonight. Nothing major just a PC game. Now if only had a decent PC to run it on.

Anna2077
02 Nov 1:09 PM

@Anna2077 lmao I was about last month month for the daily random points out of the members that did all the major bonuses. Probably first in the number of comps ticked off if that counts. Any luck this month I'll bounce back. At least for this month got double guesses for the guessing game to look forward to. Never complaining, I'm just handballing back your lovely daily points enjoy. :)

It's way too early to get pessimistic or optiministic for the leaderbarod. At least you could of waited until about day 14-21 when start get a good impression if genuinely still in with chance. You be hoping to be around 90 daily points for 14 days or for 21 days around 135. I look at how a each 7 day period where an average around 45 points for each week places roughly the top 1/2 dozen. It only takes a decent run for a few days to turn things around quickly.

If I'm ever complaining it's about my PC. I wouldn't wish it on anyone as it's a form of torture. I won't be handballing that when I finally retire it to the scrape heap. I could do with some nice small cash wins this month to help towards the budget for a new PC. X fingers.

Good luck,. :)

Silly question but could someone explain how the point system works

sandi.888
11 Oct 9:30 AM

Hello sandi.888, Basically once you join update your profile pic with a photo for 50 points, update your survey details for an additional 50 points. These points stay permanently.
Every day that you log in, you get a random number of points between 1 -10. (They will appear on the left hand site on the competitions page).
Then play the guessing game each day for an additional 50 points every day.
Every competition that you click on will give you one point. If your not interested in entering that comp still click on it for the point and then hit the little not interested button on the right. The competition will disappear off the list.
Open the emails - every now and then there are extra ways to earn points. Hope I have'nt missed anything so welcome and good luck with your wins! :)

@Smalot11 Still waiting on Alex to fix up my Compux transfer from last month. :( Usually it's pretty quick thou there were some site issues last week.

@sandi.888 Just a note at the cash out levels for the compbux.

Comp buxs
10,000 ponts = $100 AUD
5,2000 = $50
3,400 = $30

Guessing game win is 5,000 compbuxs

You need to have those amount of comp buxs to cash out at various levels. You can also gain extra compbuxs from surveys listed to reach the various levels to cash out. Note for the lower the compbuxs amounts cashed out you loose a bit on the "exchange" rates.

A warning re PuraChoice washing machine competition on Facebook ...

The competition is layered ie there is more than one step, three in fact, and they don't tell you that in the opening step.

1. Like, comment, share the Facebook page
2. You get a private message to say now you have to enter your name and email
3. Then you get another message and email to say now you have to buy a product and upload a photo

If you are happy doing that, all is good.

But I have a dislike for being asked to jump through extra hoops that were not made clear at the beginning enabling them to harvest contact information when you may be disinclined to complete all the tasks.

Now to win something in an external comp as I haven't won anything since movie tickets in Mar 2016!! I don't enter a lot of comps, maybe 40-60 a month but I would have thought that something will come my way soon.

22 Oct 6:56 PM

@spyglass Looks like the site had major maintenance this morning. Hang on you won last month leaderboard there's a win and probably won a leaderboard around last year in May. Cash is king beats most prizes :) if you have enough computer under the mattress should ok to cash out the $50. I'm still trying to reach that level for a 3rd place $25 won a few months back.

Lemond
22 Oct 11:00 PM

@Lemond yes, I was meaning that his site is the only place where I seem to win anything. I've had a good run in the last 12 months, so I'll take that as a win.....but there is nothing wrong with being greedy so a win from another site is long overdue!

spyglass
24 Oct 12:10 PM

@spyglass I know that feeling this year though won a few small prizes this month a $20 Bunnings, $100 Coles and a bottle of cognac which will pick up this weekend.

Sort of ironically that the comps that win are from the comp site and. It from entering the comps.

Damn typo last post mean be compbux under the bed thou do keep my old pc parts under there as well. It's a time for a spring clean.

https://masterpapers.com service was a life-saver, setting me up with a quality essay that was better than what I could have written myself. Customer support was very responsive with my questions and concerns, and the essay itself was very articulate and met my requests to the letter. I also got the essay well ahead of deadline so there was plenty of time to make revisions, though I didn't need any. Overall, I was more than happy with Masterpapers service pricing, punctuality, and the quality of their product, and I will definitely be ordering more essays from them in the future.

@Npas Wishing you the best of luck.

The only thing I would add for voting requests is an end date so members know how urgent to get votes in etc. Also worthy of attaching the photo in your post to draw attention.

Will vote soon as had a quick look at the T&C's. I've included a rough extract of important points below for members. Looks like your partner can also separately do an entry. Voters can only vote once per entrant, but may vote for as MANY different entry pages.

The Promotion opens 18th September 2017 at 9am and closes 30th November 2017 at midnight AEST.
Open To: Australia only, 18+

Main Prize: at the end of the Promotion, the eligible Entry with the most valid Votes will be deemed the winner of the main prize. The Entry with the second highest amount of valid Votes will be deemed the winner of the first runner up prize and the Entry with the third highest amount of valid Votes will be deemed the winner of the second runner up winner.

There is also a voter prize.
Voter Prizes: Entrants must complete an entry on the Website by filling in the online form in order to vote for their favourite couple. Each Entry page has an entry form which constitutes a vote (Vote) when successfully completed. An entrant may Vote for each Entry ONCE only, but may Vote for as MANY different Entry pages as they like. Each valid Vote is entered into the draw for the Voter Prize Pool.

Voter Prizes: The Voter Prize recipients will be judged by a board of Thomas representatives, based on the judge's personal opinions as to the Votes they deem most creative, worthy and, where appropriate, aligned to the Thomas brand values.

Voter Prize Pool:
Main Voter Prize consists of:
– Either a $1,500 diamond pendant or a $1,500 watch from Thomas Jewellers, the winner can choose which to receive, which will be administered in store or by phone / email, valid until 31/7/18
Weekly Voter Prizes consist of:
– 10 x $100 vouchers from Thomas Jewellers , which the winners can choose to spend in store or via the online store, valid until 31/7/18

Wow great pirzes lots of luck. If haven't already done so utialize any of the Aussie comping groups and any other Australian social groups. :)

Tips & Tricks

How do you check back whether you have win anything? especially on facebook if they just announce your name and expect you to contact them yourself? and I actually don't have any comping friend on facebook :(

indriasun
30 Sep 12:57 PM

Join Competition Winners Australia on fb. Then you can use the "Search this Group" for your name.

gaseja
30 Sep 2:58 PM

Argh my pet hate and a close 2nd sorting through my emails searching if won.

The first option is to keep an eye on FB notifications from competitions entered. Probably best to always to add a comment to a comp post even if not required. I think that might give a notification. It also helps me for the email notifications sent i.e. can separate my email folders according to search terms. Eg "commented on" etc. Lately I'm finding notifications disappearing before I get to follow them up. From there you can go through you own timeline for what posts your commented on etc for checking back.

I find the most reliable way is to send them to your emails then can more easily search for the regular winning terms. It's not foolproof thou might help. Also searching for your name and using the winning terms eg "winner", "congrat" , "win" etc etc on Facebook.

I also bookmark FB competitiion posts with the end date at the start of the label so can sort into order. EG Sept 30, 2017 : 'Comp XYZ'. That way can manually check back and either delete the bookmarks or update the label. most times if get around to it append XXX to the start of the label to identify checked drawn result. Ideally I looking to scrap using bookmarks it has it limitations apart from a mass of bookmark folders to create each month. i.e. you may have other social media you checking back on.

Entering comps is the easy part like you're hinting at, managing to checking back and catching that winning post when finally happens can be a challenge. Joining the Facebook winners group can help to a degree, it depends if someone else in the group has also entered and then posts a winners announcement Generally I don't enter a lot of the ones that happen to be posted and probably pass over 95% of the comps that ones that circulate about. Still manage to enter many 100's per month that interest me. So it depends on where you are sourcing your comp from for the likelyhood a winners post announcement is done in the group. If sourcing them from the Aussie competition sites, like this one a good chance will be posted. The downside every man and his dog has probably also entered.

Comping friends help. If I spot if they have will tag and message them. If you're lucky will find some nice ones to help you. You'll find lots of "voluenteers" for adding to as comping contacts, generally looking for someone to add to their mass tagging for extra entries.
It has it's pros and cons having many comping contacts.

Pros.
To meet basic FB comp requirements eg Tag X number of friends.
Lots of comping contact to mass tag the crap of a tagging comp for bonus entries. Note need to be carefully doing too many in a period or may find FB temporary suspends you from commenting, tagging. Also some comping contacts may become a bit
Share referrals based competitions for bonus entries.

Cons.
Can end up being overwhelmed with FB notifications especially during the busy XMAS comping season.
If manage to find low entry comps it's a domino effect once nice comps come to the attention of the large groups
That can also be a pro for finding competitions thou you don't necessarily have to be a contact to know what's circulating about.

Things to least be wary of at ;east and if lucky will find some comping contacts to help you. If relative new to comping having some comping contacts can open up a mass of competitions that don't get around to being listed on sites. Thou you don't necessarily need to join as a friend contact see what's circulating about.

Hope something there helps.

Good Luck.

@indriasun Doh Richmond won by tooooooo much. Was right on the money for one comp at half time. :(

I think all I read was tips, god I've definately got footy tipping on the brain atm. lmao.

The one thing searching for your name won't find is when the promoter posts an image or video for winner announcements. If someone has shared it to the group usually they will put in the subject "Congratulations XYZ". If members keep to that standard I find easy to spot in the subject headings for my FB email notifications.

I've Won

I've won a $100 coles card. Finally the end of my Facebook comp drought since January.
Provisionally appears the my stars have aligned with a Steven Bradbury effort for the leader board. Contgrats to the other leader board winners. I thought be extremely close finish. Woot Woot.

Now X fingers for Richmond to win by around 9 points for the footy tipping. Go Tigers!!!!

Try2win
30 Sep 10:05 AM

@Smalot11 @Try2win Thanks. :) Total argree Coles gift cards are very handy and good as cash.

This year it's been a run of small cash wins from this site a few times and another site's exclusive comps twice last month that's adding up nicely.

Hadn't done that much comping in comparision to last year while was distracted to the database/programme the last 6 months +. Kinda made a pact after the XMAS rush of comps needed a better way for at least checking back and doing the daily bonus entries. Why if anything my wins have been from the sites I don't neeed to be constantly checking emails or FB notifications etc.

For now that's on slight hiatus to actually enter a decent amount comps to improve my chances. There's only so many times can get lucky on the leader board etc. Thou the nightmare of checking back on all the Facebook comps is going to be "fun" in the next week. Was lucky that one of my nice comping contacts tagged me when saw that I won. One of the pros of having at least a couple of nice comping contacts :)

If it pours Yellow & Black the drought will be broken. God a drought since 1980 for Richmond fans, now that's a drought!

30 Sep 6:19 PM

@Smalot11 :)
I don't think much luck with allllllllllllllllll the footy tipping comps I've done over the last week.

Argh I'm footy tipped out must of done about 40+ of them. Bit like doing all the XMAS ones, at least they only go for a few days. You need to on the ball or end up only left with picking enormous margins as most where first to guess closest. If could do that over again would be bit more organised how to locate them.

Damn one was for for $250 cash with only ONE Richmond guess. I was spot on at the half time margin if that counts :( Just had to decide higher or lower then that one guess. Hmmm still can hope they don't claim it in time. "wishful' thinking

So if do a bit of leg work and hunt around you can find the occassional very decent odds off the main comping radar. IMO my impression most of the Aussie compers on FB rarely do any as see the same ones circulating about. Really it's only the first couple times a promoter runs some competitions they are low key after that they become known.

Won $9.33 today from Draftstars free entry comp to add to my run of cash wins. Along with approximatelyr 10,000 winners, virtually everyone that entered that today won. :)

indriasun
30 Sep 1:30 AM

Big Congrats. Do compers have ethics? lol

What you do with it is your business. The only issues might be the terms and conditions if can sell it easily. You'll have to check with if can transfer it without any issues. Being a voucher highly possible be fine. Tickets for events on the otherhand there might be issues to overcome.

The ethics of selling your prized possessions is something you'll have to grapple with. The biggest issue personally find the hassle of selling if won something can't use. If got higher priorities for other things really need it's a no brainer.

Congrats and good luck. :)

I can see that some people don't think it's acceptable although I believe it's my right to do so, moreover there's some effort involved. I can see that this Tixstar voucher can be given/sold. Let me know if any of you wants to get this $500 voucher for $300. Thanks all. https://www.tixstar.com.au/

30 Sep 12:34 PM

@indriasun God I wouldn't worry, at times can be heated debate. When you get to understand the various reasons you can't be too quick to judge. You'll probably find those judging were eyeing off that prize etc :). I wish you could pick and choose what you want to win it's a bit of a lucky dip. Stick your hand in and could be keys to a new car or box of tissues.

Personally I keep (most times) to comps with prizes want to win and lately more focused on cash/grocery vouchers. Occassional some eye candy might lure me off the that path. So overall if win the odds are something really looking for. I pass over like 90% of comps saves wasted time checking back on those.

Reminds me I need to find someone from South Australia or wants to win a holiday 5 nights accomodation without airfares, if it hasn't closed and withdraw my entry. Lasted I checked had few entries. I think if still open be the 2pm i.e. the first bounce of the footy. :)
