Not getting credit for 15 entries for Twitter following in SD Giveaway

8,354 11,431 February 8, 2018 at 07:25 AM
The title says it all. It's been happening for a while now even though I'm following and retweet the Giveaways. I thought it would fix itself like some past issues I've seen, but it hasn't. I'm also not winning the Giveaways. Sadwalk

Thanks!

Thanks lalullaby! It was fixed for a while, but now I'm having a similar issue.

BTW when will you fix the problem of me not winning any Giveaways? laugh out loud

Hey Joe! I'm investigating your issue right now and had a quick question for you.

Does the Retweet This button work correctly for you, but the points are never credited after you finishing clicking retweet on the window that pops open? Or does the button not work at all?

This problem just cropped up for me today. The retweet button worked correctly, the tweet appeared in my account, but I didn't receive the points.

I just figured out what happened. I set up Tracking Protection the other day after a Firefox update, and for some reason it blocked SD. As soon as I whitelisted SD and retweeted, the points were added. Who knew SD needed to be protected from tracking - and how dare Firefox block my beloved SD!

Thanks, zozz, for the info - disabling tracking protection (for SD) fixed it for me, too. I would prefer to leave it on, but can turn it off for now. Hopefully SD figures out a way to make it work with this turned on.

Nice find! That does indeed seem to be the issue. It looks like when tracking protection is on, Firefox will block embedded twitter widgets from working properly.
