What's the record....

...for the number of comptetitions entered without winning anything?

I have entered about half the comps since I joined (I don't bother if i can't use the prize, and sometimes they ask for a review of something I don't own). So 3.5 years times, say, 1 comp per month is 42 competitions. It's probably more like 60 and I have never won once.

Can anyone beat that?

Also is it my imagination, or do user names close to the beginning of the alphabet win more often?

Awww, so sorry SP. Actually I was wondering if this would be "What's the record for the longest time you have waited for your prize?" I was so excited to win one back in April, but prize has still not arrived!

y'see? you're a J.

Maybe I should change my name.

Have you asked champs about your prize?

You could be on to something there SP.

I too have not won any

Although I only enter ones that would be beneficial to dd.

Checked with champs and she looked into it but that was a month ago and still nothing yet.

I've won twice and as you see, I'm a J. Change your name to Aardvark for comps...?

That's so sweet of you to look into it again. I was getting a bit embarrassed to email again, but it did sound like a nice prize.

I enter any competition that either me or DD could benefit from. I do forget at times though, as I don't link here via the home page.

I have actually won 4 competitions
* tickets to see barney live, in Birmingham
* Disney Aladdin competion
* Easy 2 name pack
* and this past week, I won a UV sun pack too

I did win one of these in a different name though.
