One other possible route is for Bernard to produce a postcard to go out with journal or be requested from the site which would then allow only one per person/ requestor. Appreciate that there might be a cost to Bernard for that but I for one be prepared to stump up a little extra.

Hi

I'm as christian as the next person but, I'm also as selfish as the next

Here's my selfish plan

Let all journal holders know about this forum........ If they register fine if not...... even better

After a decent period has elapsed give the details of the comp on this forum and has everybody has a registration number and username that is what you put on the postcard

If people don't want to send in a post card then ........ even better again

The idea originated here ......... if people can't be bothered to register then that is their hard luck....... we give journal holders the chance to register which is fair

It creates on the forum a group worth being a member of

Nobody is excluded , but those that make the effort are rewarded

It does sound a good idea, selfish but good and I can go with a bit of selfishness on occasions.

I can't see Bernard going for that though, he would say its unfair to the rest of the world and elitist as well.

Of course, it will be open to all.
MInd you, in your case your lovely wife will have to fill in the postcard., as I know you are still having trouble with joined up writing!


Very true. I always write in capital letters.

Not true actually. Many competitions you can enter as many times as you like, but no more than a set amount per week. This is usually when the competition organisers don't have a gambling licence and have to allow No Purchase Necessary entries on instant win competitions.

I stand corrected
I think Bernard should put all the rules of entry with the questain together so everyone knows where they stand

I enter 50 - 100 competitions a month so I have to have a good knowledge of the rules.

I wish I did, but I have had some good prizes, the best of which so far is my Martin Johnson autographed Autobiography and England Shirt.
