As the 'Ladder' was reset on 27 March to see if it worked ok, everything seems fine. However, it would be a better idea to perhaps reset it again on 1 June rather than 1 April. During these last few days many competitions have been entered to amass points on the 'Test Ladder'. Those points were gained by entering competitions which one cannot enter again; therefore restricted in gaining points on the Ladder. Hope that all makes sense.

Yes - because I'm up-to-date with my competitions, I've only been able to accumulate 16 points and am lagging behind the leaders already

Pippin - We will have to wait and see what the Editorial Team decide. Meanwhile - Someone might be having a joke. Suddenly from nowhere comes Pufferfish to take the lead. According to the list of users there is no-one with that name. Unless someone knows differently!

Is that an April Fool Rolysb ?? tongue sticking out smiley
I'm not really worried about the ladder, it's just a comp tracker for me!

The ladder will only count competititons added after the reset also, so everyone will be equal no matter what competitions you entered up to the reset.

Ah that's better. So we all start on April 1 at the bottom of the ladder and all competitions added to CC website prior to that will not count. That is as I understand it. Good luck everyone.smileys with beer

But you don't get ladder points every time you enter a competition. And is entering competitions the only way you can get them? I find it all a bit confusing.
Re: Ladder

I'm not really bothered about the ladder, I just want to enter as many comps as possible.

Look along the top bar where forum etc is listed and you will find the ladder, I think it is about the third one along.

To Ukinet: Can we expect the Ladder to be reset very soon as you suggested on March 29th?

Wish I could work out how you're edging away from my on The Ladder, rolysb, even though I'm up-to-date with every single competition. Guess you know which buttons to press

Hello Pippin. I don't think The Ladder if very important. On 27th March the Webmaster commented:
Today we have reset the ladder as a short test, if all goes well then the ladder will reset again on the 1st April.

Nothing then happened. So maybe things did not ''all go well''.

Have you read this below The Ladder?

''How do I earn points?''

Good luck

yeah - I agree the ladder isn't important - it's just the way my brain works - too competitive

I enter as many competitions as I can every day so was well down the list when it was reset and thought I could never catch up with the leaders as I had entered everything up to that date, but by continuing to enter as many as possible I find I am top of the list today so it seems to prove that you can climb up the ladder by continuing to enter as many as you can. Don't give up.

Re: Ladder

Netpence - have you done ALL the comps? Not just the ones in Latest Competitions. Have you clicked onto each category?
Re: Ladder
April 12, 2014 09:34PM
Yep rolysb i'm all up to date, the more i do i go down the ladder, not really worried as long as i am winning prizes from entering comps which is paying off as over £1000 in goodies this year smiling smiley Have noticed some of my competitions have DARK blue/black (different colour blue to other lines) lines crossed through them, do you know anything about this and why?confused smiley
Re: Ladder
April 12, 2014 09:43PM
I am not getting the different coloured lines. Although some of the blue links to the comps stay blue with a line through them after I enter; others turn to a pink colour and have a pink line through. I don't think it leads to any problems.
Re: Ladder
April 12, 2014 09:58PM
Oh well i will just carry on comping in hope of more winnings, and maybe someone of CC team might read this thread and actually answer our little questions that we bring up !!!!
Re: Ladder
April 12, 2014 10:55PM
Netpence - you have entered 26 competitions taking you from 15th position yesterday on 1044 points to your current place at 7th on 1148 points. Have you read this from the CC team:

How do I earn points? Well, there are a few ways, and more to come but generally by using Competitors Companion and clicking on things. We're not going to tell you all the ways to earn points but an example is by entering competitions we list.

I think the key words are ''clicking on things''.

Good luck.
Re: Ladder

Well, Roly, I have entered every single comp., I have double checked by going into 'Latest', 'Expiring today' and 'Expiring soon' as well as the individual tabs. I've clicked 'everything' like a woman possessed (links, adverts, profile, contact etc etc), and still I'm gradually getting further behind you (a few points everyday). Beats me.
