For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ.

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.

Disqualification (winning daily give away)

Post by jedreid » 18 Sep 2017, 15:09

I'm a new user and recently won the daily give away but got disqualified due to wrong twitter handler.. i didn't notice or i never bothered to notice since unlike with other social accounts it wasn't pointed out that i need to enter my twittet handler before i can earn that entry (or i just didn't notice? ?). it's quite disappointing since i really did the task diligently but rules are rules noh?

anyways, it would be nice to be notified of such mistake beforehand to avoid this situation or to get a chance to correct it before disqualification for those who really put an effort but being careless.

thank you!

I am sorry for your disappointment, but it is pointed out on the Giveaway page. You were asked to connect your Social Accounts for Book of the Day Giveaways on the Giveaway page (Social profiles tab), and you should have given the correct accounts. How can your sharing be checked if you gave the wrong twitter handler??
