AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:18:39

what IS it for?

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:18:53

Is it just an advert pretending to be a comp?

coppertop Sun 03-Mar-13 22:24:24

It says it's a "cruel competition" - so is it meant to be cruel because the prizes are probably useless to most people?

Very odd.

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:24:46

lol

PedlarsSpanner Sun 03-Mar-13 22:25:14

I can't see it. Is it on the Comp page? Home page?

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:25:53

PedlarsSpanner Sun 03-Mar-13 22:27:18

T&Cs: The prize is a family ticket (up to 5 tickets – between Tuesday 2nd July 2013-Saturday 13th July 2013) to the Horrible Histories stage show, Awful Egyptians, at the Drama Theatre in the Sydney Opera House, Australia.
Please note NO TRAVEL IS INCLUDED and the prize is non-transferable

Bluelightsandsirens Sun 03-Mar-13 22:32:21

Don't click on the link!!!!!

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:32:50

it was no problem here

coppertop Sun 03-Mar-13 22:34:30

It's only the competition link that was on the side of the MN page. It goes to the Horrible Histories website.

Or you can find it by googling "cruel competition sydney" if you're worried about spam.

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:35:20

yes - chillax

PedlarsSpanner Sun 03-Mar-13 22:41:24

CatherineMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 03-Mar-13 22:47:52

Hi all, <scratches head> don't know about this one but we'll flag it up to the team

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:48:52

LOL

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:49:05

who are the team?

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 22:49:38

If they want to Make Amends, they can fly me out to do a review and see my old mate Sarah

Bluelightsandsirens Sun 03-Mar-13 23:15:57

The team at MNHQ that deal with comps.

There has been lots of spam so it may be another element of that.

AlisonMoyet Sun 03-Mar-13 23:16:41

I know. I was kidding.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 04-Mar-13 08:14:12

Morning. Sorry for the initial confusion: I think CatherineMumsnet thought you were referring to a Competition run by MNHQ.

This is a comp being advertised on a banner ad, from what I can work out. If so, it's not a comp run by us. But we'll contact the client who bought the ad as soon as we can, and see what we can find out.

OliviaAllOverTheSpamMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 04-Mar-13 09:12:56

AlisonMoyet

who are the team?

NO names
Like in Reservoir DOgs grin

AlisonMoyet Mon 04-Mar-13 09:13:41

JengaBlock Mon 04-Mar-13 09:17:21

I will enter if they include travel!

OliviaAllOverTheSpamMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 04-Mar-13 09:17:53

But less violent natch

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 04-Mar-13 11:21:06

Hello. OK, have delved and digged and discovered that this was an ad booked through a third-party agency.

We have now blocked it.

I'd quite like to go to Australia now...
