Anyone else attempting this? I feel I could lose a lot of my week if I'm not careful!

stargirl1701 Mon 15-Apr-13 22:43:01

Yes. Bloody hell, it's a lot of work! I've spent today doing all the Facebook likes and the Tweet, and the Clean Green Nappy mini comp.

I've not even started the game pieces. I found the Tots Bots one but can't paste using either my iPhone or iPad so I'll need to fire up a laptop angry

This is not going to be quick! I'll be pretty irritated if I win nothing!!!!

Was going to just do it for a little while yesterday evening and I think I spent over 2 hours!! Some of them are really easy, but got a bit disheartened trawling through a site that has 500+ pages! It does seem that a few of them are giving hints on their Facebook but I think these tend to be the ones with smaller sites anyway.

stargirl how come you can't paste? On an iPhone (don't have an iPad but I assume it's the same) tap on the address bar, select all, copy. Then press and hold in the field where you want to paste, and paste.

stargirl1701 Tue 16-Apr-13 11:23:11

Yeah I tried that. It just kept jumping back rather than pasting. I can paste in the daily giveaways just not the URLs. Laptop is on...

TallGiraffe Tue 16-Apr-13 12:38:11

I've got 10 so far, but they've tended to be from the smaller sites. Some Of the sites are massive!

I agree though, if I put in this much effort I want to win something!

It doesn't really chime with the 'cloth nappies are easy' message does it? I think a lot of people are getting fed up!

rrreow Tue 16-Apr-13 15:35:26

I've been going to the Facebook pages first and seeing if they've posted a clue. It's definitely very helpful although sometimes requires a bit of lateral thinking.

I skip the ones that I can't find quickly enough and will check their FB pages later in the week to see if they have posted any clues.

I've got 28 so far and have probably spent about 3 hours on it. It's a big time investment for sure. It's fun if they give clues so you feel a sense of achievement figuring it out, but not so much fun if you are just mindlessly clicking through hundreds of pages.

TallGiraffe Tue 16-Apr-13 18:15:15

Rr good technique, I have totally switched to your tactic. Although on FB site did say she couldn't give a clue because she couldn't remember where it was hmm

One person only had 2 to find! I reckon they must have done nothing else but this for 24 hours...

stargirl1701 Tue 16-Apr-13 20:31:01

14 so far. This is so hard!

stargirl1701 Tue 16-Apr-13 21:16:37

Now up to 18. Jeez!

Fairylea Tue 16-Apr-13 21:17:48

I love cloth nappies but it's far too complicated for me. Too much effort. sad

stargirl1701 Tue 16-Apr-13 21:56:37

49 more entries to do...I'm losing the will to live!

stargirl1701 Tue 16-Apr-13 21:57:55

Only 20 pieces found tonight. I need wine

stargirl1701 Wed 17-Apr-13 09:45:11

Day 3! grin

rrreow Wed 17-Apr-13 11:07:47

12 more to go for me. Some of these are really impossible though. Also there are 1 or 2 sites where I really doubt it's actually on there (these are fairly simple sites that don't have a gazillion pages).

stargirl1701 Wed 17-Apr-13 11:54:11

Have you won anything yet? I've entered all the flash comps and daily giveaways too. Nada.

rrreow Wed 17-Apr-13 13:55:46

Nope not won anything either.

stargirl1701 Wed 17-Apr-13 15:30:02

I can't open the Mama Knows Best site at all.

TallGiraffe Wed 17-Apr-13 17:56:18

Isn't the mama knows best one on her FB page? From memory... If you click on the bit where you'd enter the URL then that'll tell you.

12 to go, I'm impressed!

rrreow Wed 17-Apr-13 18:00:16

Mama Knows Best URL is: https://www.facebook.com/AMamaKnows/

TallGiraffe I've spent probably 5 hours doing it! Hoping to get the other 12 tonight.. This is very reminiscent of the endless grind of World of Warcraft, I have years of experience grin

I've got 7. I stuck at this.

stargirl1701 Wed 17-Apr-13 20:31:54

I have no WoW experience so this is like torture. Too much screen time for me!

I found the A Mama Knows FaceBook site and the piece but, of course, I can't copy the URL on my phone or iPad. This competition is not that well designed for non PC users.

stargirl1701 Wed 17-Apr-13 20:41:48

30 entries to do - 28 game pieces to find...

rrreow Wed 17-Apr-13 22:54:34

I found all the pieces and am quickly starting to realise that was actually the easy part. Now I am trying to solve a 67 letter anagram which strikes me as impossible! Hopefully they will give hints because I don't think this is actually something a normal human being can do??

stargirl1701 Thu 18-Apr-13 06:35:30

I heard/saw a few posts on Facebook that clues will be released to help solve the phrase.

I'm so far away from that stage!
