Trying to enter contest

Tried earlier today….and it said that it posted. But I don’t see it. Tried to do it again and it said it was a duplicate post.

I’m not that worried about it. I am the unluckiest person ever anyhow. But it doesn’t seem to be working right. Just FYI.

    <p>I've got to join the MeToo crowd here. I made a second post this morning by changing what I wanted to win. It too has disappeared. </p>

    <p>Same issue here. I just contacted support. I tried once last night, once this morning. Both times in Chrome. Both comments don't exist.</p><p><br></p><p>Now I've tried with Internet Explorer and I get this message:</p><p><br></p><p>"Duplicate comment detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!"</p><p><br></p><p>However, there's no visible comment.</p>

    <p>These are getting caught up in spam…likely from the massive influx of the same comments over and over again.</p><p><br></p><p>Posting them now…and will do so right after the contest ends as well.</p>

    <p>Yes, my comment too seems to have vanished. </p><p><br></p><p>Just one more data point for Paul. Giveaways and contests are terrible to administer, no one appreciates the work involved, and someone will always be unhappy with the results. Wait a minute…. that sounds like just another day in IT. Thanks to Paul, Brad and the rest for being willing to deal with the headache.</p>

    <p>Another disappearing post to add for one from about half an hour ago. I thought it might be because I'm in the UK – but I have a friendly father-in-law in the US whose address I will use 🙂 in the unlikely event that I should be fortunate enough to win.</p><p><br></p><p>Either way, thanks to Paul for his time and effort in making this happen.</p>
