    @Spyro Peeps who tag the SAME person in one all the time are simply too lazy to take other steps. For example, what I do now is to keep a list of peeps who have specifically said that they are willing to be tagged in comps on the thread https://www.ecigssa.co.za/giveaway-participation-and-notification-thread.t42885/. I then mark off who I've tagged in current comps so that I don't tag them again.

    The_Ice started the above thread for those who are willing to be tagged. Perhaps you should start one for those who are unwilling? I'm sure other peeps feel the same way that you do.

    @Hooked I feel like you keep side stepping the issue of it being a bad way to run a competition. Not only are the taggings annoying. It promotes spam, it's annoying and I'd love to enter a comp but I can't because if I do A) I get notifications for weeks and B) someone else will spam the competition and win. So there is no point.

    It's therefore been my tactic to avoid competitions in their entirety.

    @Spyro from a business point of view it's a marketing strategy and thus good - for them. As I suggested, start a Don't Tag Me for Competitions thread and maybe that will help.

    A don't tag me thread is pointless as very few will read it and new comers won't abide by it. If you think about it, it'll do no good. Sure, the advertising is good for the Chinese companies and I'm not saying it's wrong to have competitions. What I'm trying to get at is that the manner in which competitions can be held should be closely monitored, just like the classifieds. With rules instead of this chaos.

    If you limit entries to one per person, you have less clutter, less people being tagged multiple times and best of all a fair competition that can be won by people who don't have the time to sit and spam a thread.

    Good morning peeps
    suggestion :
    Can we please split Classifieds into ''for sale '' and ''wanted'' ?
    It is frustrating to see ''Asmodus'' , click on the ad ,and some one wants one and not sell it.

    And if you press the return button on the pc , it takes you back to the main page and not back to eg. Giggles or Classifieds .
    I don't know if it's only me that struggle with this issue ?
    Have a great day .

    It is :) just use the actual classifieds page, not the most recent threads block on the homepage.

    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/forums/for-sale/

    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/forums/classified-trading/

    That issue you have is because you are using the most recent threads plugin on the homepage rather than scrolling down to the actual threads .

    I struggled with it for a while too.

    Just go to homepage and scroll till you find classifieds thread. Or be lazy like me and just open a new tab with every thread you open from recents.

    Even better, go to classifieds for sale and click watch forum. Then you get alerts everytime there is something new posted
