A slight problem with some of your multiple choice answers...

If you ask how many years' experience Shoetique have...

Or how many patents Estee Lauder have...

And the answers are all "X+ years" or "Y+ patents"...

Then technically anyone ticking the lowest number is correct.

If they have 32 years' experience then 10+ and 20+ and 30+ are all correct.

Oh Trills, you lovely pedant.

Are you bored today Trills? grin

Strictly speaking you are right though.

I was just reminded of the existence of the competitions so thought I would have a go - I would like some free shoes.

Just pick the highest that is applicable

I know that's what they want - they want you to pick 30+ if the answer is 32, or 20+ if the answer is 22, but in both cases 10+ is still correct, so will the people who clicked "10+" be entered into the draw?

I can never find any of these competitions - which 'Topic' are they under or can you not see them on the app?

BoyMeetsWorld - look at the blue bar directly under the Mumsnet logo and the top ad on this page. One of the links on it is to the Competitions page

Sorry just realised you said on the app....

BoyMeetsWorld Mon 15-Apr-13 18:25:43

Hmmm maybe they're not on the app then confused

You should be able to get to the desktop site through your phone's browser - even if it opens with the mobile site, there's a link to the desktop site on the first page that opens.

That's some really high quality pedantry you got going on there <impressed>.
