Spamming friends to join was bad enough, but now limiting entries to people who have experience of international camp sites???

Tis like telling people they can only review cloth nappies for a comp, when only a small % of MNers may use them.

I would be interested to know how many entries they had compared to usual, Flame

(and no, I didn't enter because I can't, despite the fact that I actually wanted the prize this time!)

Hi Flame - please don't sulk! Not all competitions will work for everyone (you know the saying you can't please all the people etc) but Catherine is beavering away and we do have loads more than we used to in the hope that over time everyone gets a chance to enter a fair few and indeed win one. We know overseas camping is a little specialist but there is another fab competition to win a weekend break on offer this week and all you have to do to enter that is add a local listing.

And we need folks to send us new product reviews so they are as useful as possible to as many as possible as soon as possible. Camping may not be your thing (I'm with you there by the way) but hopefully some of our Mumsnet Best reviews are, so you can see why we want to encourage folks to contribute to them to make them as useful as poss.

Anyway tell us what criteria you'd like for competitiion entrance (site related) and we'll try and make it happen at least once.

The criteria I'd like for competition entrance is that you have to have Mama and G in your name

Yes, sigh, I knew there'd be some suggestions of that ilk... smile

I want to sulk. I have pmt wink

As much as I love the sound of a weekend break, alas, the pmt kind of makes a lamaze weekend seem a bit redundant grin

No specific criteria required from me <snigger @ MamaG>, just more than one way to enter

(Sorry for being arsey, it is a perpetual state atm for some reason blush

Yeah I wanted to enter this one but I've never stayed in a campsite abroad either sad

All is forgiven... book reviews and pirate galleons grin

Do you get an entry per review?

Blandmum Thu 22-May-08 17:17:23

Flame Thu 22-May-08 17:39:09

Tortington Thu 22-May-08 17:44:11
