I have been entering the advent calendar draw every day apart from Saturday when we were in the pub!
 
I tried last night and all I could get was the wesite is experiencing problems, please try later. I could not even get on the Forum to complain!
 
Yesterdays cometition is now closed and I was sure I would win...
 
Ah well there are twenty three othe chances

Hi Ron
 
Sadly the site had huge problems but gladly all sorted out now but, this doesn't help you now does it.

Once is has past 11.59pm, the doors get ready to open for the new days prize and there is no way of getting back that day.


I must admit, because I know a bit about the web, I turned to another web viewer and through many tries I did manage to get the advent site open and play (not that I will win of course). It took 20 odd goes mind you.

All I can say is to make sure you enter as soon as you can just in case of other problems occurring.........better be safe than sorry


Good luck

Marc

I was lucky I did it in the morning, I turned on the computor to find an email I needed to check so I opened the door while I was on, my luck ended there.still there are plenty more days to go.

I could not get on the site either even though I tried severel times.
Having problems with the site is one way to be sure not to give a prize away. Competition should be extended by another day every time there is a problem.

Come on folks these things happen. You started the day without what ever the prize was, you are no worse off now than you were last week Yesterday or tommorow.  The only thing you can be certain with computers is they will go wrong, crash, or do something unexpected just when you wanted to do something you considered of great importance.
Dont be greedy. So far with this Advent thing I have given you all a Christmas present, one more chance of winning. I have done that by not entering. If we all did that dear old Marc would stand a chance. Good luck to you

George, you could be lucky on this one, seems you are the only one to enter!
 
I do see this as a bit of fun, and I am realistic enough to know my chances to win.  If I can't have a moan at Cristmas When can i?

Thank you Roger
 
With over 500 people entering every day I'm surprised the website has lasted this long!
 
You just have to have a look at the 'All forum topics' and view the 'Active members in the last 20 minutes'.........
