Giveaways behavior change or is it not submitting my entries?

216 287 June 5, 2018 at 05:14 PM
I make it a point to enter the giveaways whenever they are offered. Recently I have noticed that when I click on the green "Enter Giveaway" button on the Front Page it takes me to the normal submission page but it always says that I have already entered without giving me an opportunity to enter. On my profile page it used to consistently show an entry in the activity stream that I entered the giveaway and now it no longer does that. The last one that appears to have entered correctly was April 2nd, 2018.

So is this a new behavior that entering Giveaways is automatic and no longer produces an entry on the Activity Stream? Or is it not working right? Scratchchin

I've been having this issue for two weeks now...I have to load the page like a dozen times to get the link to appear that takes me to the options page. (page 3). Frustrating.

Front Page (#1) -> Shown entry/decription Page (#2) -> Entries by entry option page (#3)

Is this perhaps a way of punishing me because I prefer to use the classic layout?

I strongly suspect that it is cheating me out of my giveaway entries.

That doesn't sound too fun to deal with, I'll take a look at this for you and see if anything is up with our giveaway system. Just to clarify, you're saying when you visit a link like:

https://slickdeals.net/giveaway/yadda-yadda

The link which says "Don't forget to gain extra entries" doesn't show up for you? Or are you having this issue on the specific giveaway/yaddayadda/entires page?

I still cannot enter a giveaway in either redesign view or classic view. The giveaway page simply says that I've already entered but I have not and there's no entry indicating entering on my activity stream.
