I've noticed that there are competitions listed where the link is 'broken' if the original method of entry preferred by some is used but working fine if the 'quick link' is used. Example: Closing today, Stylist Magazine, OTHER shop voucher. I couldn't use the 'report an error with this competition' link as by the original method the competition link was 'broken' and the 'quick link' doesn't provide the opportunity to report a problem (so far as I can see).

Please note this is not a moan or a whinge, not even a whine, I'm advising of a problem.

As another one I've turned up is for the same prize but this time listed with Shortlist and both Shortlist and Stylist are produced through the same publisher it looks like there's a connection.

Leading on from this, could anyone tell me whether an entry via both magazines for the same prize constitutes a breach of T&Cs? It happens a lot when a company hires a publicist and similar competitions appear on various websites/magazines offering the same prize. If, for example, Company X has a competition running to win a spa day in Heat, Grazia, Top Sante & Yours who are all from the same publishing house, am I breaking the rules by entering each one? I don't think I am but T&C's are not always black and white and are open to interpretation.

I'd like to hear other people's views, please.

Regarding the question "could anyone tell me whether an entry via both magazines for the same prize constitutes a breach of T&Cs?"

Short List comps T&Cs state "provided by Spoke, spoke-interactive.com. Helpline 0844 415 0726, calls charged at 5p per minute." So a phone call should elicit the answer. I have also found a contact form at [www.spoke-interactive.com] so it may be possible to get an answer at no cost.

The £50000 ITV competition has the wrong link. The following link should take you to the correct page.

I report wrong links whenever I find them, usually early the day they are posted - so hopefully they are corrected in time for many.

Miketerry, looking at the leaderboard you can see I'm way behind with my entries and I'm reporting at least one problem a day. So, if you're reporting errors early then it rather looks as though you are wasting your time.

I've recently signed up to a different site where any enquiry is replied to within 24 hours, problems are rectified and a professionally worded apology is made. In other words they run an efficient business. I really don't think the same can be said for C.C. by any stretch of the imagination
