A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Problem with the Daily Giveaway page

Post by ReneeOz » 05 May 2019, 07:40

Hi everyone,

I tried to participate in today's giveaway, but I keep getting an error page saying

"The May 5th giveaway ends at 5am on May 6th (EST), which is in approximately 20.3 hours.
Oh no! You caught us in the shower!

The previous day's giveaway has ended, but today's has not started yet."

As there have people already participated I know it must have worked or is working for others, but I have no idea how to get the proper page to load for me.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

No one has participated yet.

That page is the default place holder for while one day's giveaway is sorted before the next day's is set up.

The giveaway for May 5th should be available soon. :tiphat:
