I feel so dismayed for being disqualified in the daily giveaway. I should've been on the 8th place prior to the top but I was demoted back to the level with those who have 8 carryover entries. I'm about to give up.
Keep on trying, Dolor! At the end, you'll get rewarded. I was disqualified once too, but I fixed the problem and I have won the giveaways twice already. Did you fix the problem why you were disqualified?
After that, I got disqualified twice. Yesterday was the 3rd time I got disqualified. And to think that I did them all right. OMG! :'( I can't help but feel desperate.

@Dolor! You need to find out why you were disqualified first. The OBC System sends you a message explaining why you were disqualified. If you do not see the message in your inbox, check the spam box. If you don't know understand why you were disqualified, contact a moderator. They can help you.

I had sent Scott private messages about my disqualification. I have not received a reply yet. Perhaps, he is busy.

The first disqualification was about the "vague comment" as the moderator said. Then the next 2, they were not able to see my comments on LinkedIn.

I had sent the details and screenshots that I did all them right. Hopefully, I'll get a positive reply.

Awww, sorry about that. The same thing happened to me, disqualified thrice in a row. I almost gave up and tried to be extra careful. I hope you do get a favorable reply though I doubt if it can actually be reversed. Don't give up!

Thanks for cheering me up.

I'm still waiting for a positive reply.

Have just found out Dolor was disqualified - I was worrying about her and why she didn't reply to my PM. I don't understand this! Okay, I didn't always agree with her about everything, but she seemed a really nice person and I enjoyed playing word games with her! I know the moderators aren't allowed (rightly) to disclose details, but still am genuinely puzzled and unhappy about it.
