    Hi forumites,

    I created this thread, because I (and I'm sure some of you out there, as well) keep missing out on giveaway contests.

    My idea is that you subscribe to/watch/comment in this thread, then whenever there is a giveaway on the forum that requires participation from the forum members, someone can mention it here.

    I sometimes stumble upon a giveaway thread that ended a day before and required 2 more participants to activate the prize, the lucky winner then has to settle for a $10 gift voucher instead of the advertised mod kit.

    Usually part of the giveaway entries is to tag fellow members and rather than tag random people / admins the participant could select someone who has commented in this thread.

    Is it possible to notify each other of upcoming cloud comps in this thread as well?

    I often miss cloud comps in Gauteng as not all vendors post there upcoming comps on ecigsa (unfortunately) and I get totally bummed out when I miss a comp :notagain:

    Great idea @TheV. Count me in please.

    Just a suggestion, why not place a directory of participants of sorts ( like we have in the recipe threads) in the first post for easy reference?

    Regards

    Not be be a party-pooper, but tagging many people in a post is 'spam-like' behaviour that is frowned upon in many communities, including this one.
    ( Read it HERE if you don't believe me )

    Chances are good that a few members may be tagged incorrectly due to typos, auto-correct on mobile devices, etc., leading to a constant stream of unwanted notifications as everyone else in the game quotes the original post in response.
    Instead of tagging all users, why not just allow everyone to 'opt in' and subscribe to this thread themselves ? They should get a notification for new content in that case anyway.

    Just my 2c to help peeps by not getting themselves on Father Christmas' naughty list ;)

    Thank you for the heads up. I'm actually reading their comments in the thread and adding only the persons who actually wish to be added.
    In the case of your post above, for example, you will not be added.

    It's one of those small advantages to not actually being a robot... 8--)

    Hows it everybody.

    Just got a whats app message that a small store in Lenasia is running a cloud comp this friday night.
    First prize is about 4 bottles (30ml) of local house ejuice and second place is around 2 bottles.

    I'll be competing and it would be fun to have others compete as well.
    Hoping to see you guys there ;)
