CompsManager, can I ask a question?

Is it always going to be a criteria of the competitions that we have to either submit a review or parenting tip? I never feel eligible to enter any more, and I would have liked to have given this week's competition a go but (a) I have run out of things to review (b) I don't feel I should be obliged to recommend a friend to join MN (lots of friends I have met via MN anyway) (c) I'm already subscribed so that cancels me out there.

There was a similar thread last year where Justine was going to look into an alternative to reviews, but there doesn't seem to have been a change.

Sorry to sound like a right misery but I have almost given up on looking at the comps because of the criteria for entering them.

they used caption competitions for a few but its back to the old boring routes of entry I'm afraid

Me too, Jodee... Not that I've sent all that many, one, I think!

sorry you feel put off, please do have a look at comps as we have some good ones coming up. I dont set entry enquirements but will let MNHQ know about your concerns and they'll come over.

Hi there,
Yes it's a valid point. It's a fine line because we need to keep the reviews as up to date and current as possible but we'll certainly have a think about other entry requirements for those who've exhausted their reviews/tips.
Thanks for your thoughts
