Advent prizes

Posted: 13/12/2012 at 16:33

Hello everyone - please be assured that everybody who enters our Advent Calendar prize draws stands an equal chance of winning. The option to receive emails from the prize suppliers is only offered for those who are interested in hearing more about the products, and has no effect on the likelihood of winning.

Good luck to everybody who has entered - don't be discouraged if you haven't won yet, there are plenty of draws to go!

Hello everyone,

I'm happy to tell you that the Christmas-themed emoticons are now available, for you to do with as you will! 

(If you can't yet see them from the dropdown menu, you might need to clear your cache of temporary files in your web browser - Ctrl + F5 on a PC, Cmd + R on a mac.)

I hope you enjoy them...

December offers online

Hello frensclan,

Thank you for your post. Please accept my apologies for the problems you have experienced accessing the reader offers.

Please be assured that we do test the links before publication to ensure they are working. We have found in the past that usually people experience problems with the offer links for one of two reasons:

1. They are typing the address in the search engine field (usually to the right of the browser), rather than the web address field (usually on the left)
2. They are not typing the web address exactly as printed in the magazine – often not including the ‘www’

You should find that clicking the following links will work:

Peonies -
Roses -

If you have any further difficulties, do let me know.

Reply to eddie l: I'm sorry that you've had problems entering the competitions. Are you using Google Chrome as your browser? If so, it's worth trying another browser, such as Firefox to access the page. (Some Chrome users find that the buttons to select the correct answer to the competition question don't display correctly.) I hope this helps. Do let me know if you have further problems.

Hello everyone,

I've passed this request on to our design team, so I hope we'll have some Christmas-themed icons on the forum from early December.

Hello budlia63,

I'm afraid it isn't possible to directly upload individual video files to the forum. One of the reasons for this is that videos can have very large file sizes, and we have restrictions on the file size of uploads. The only way to upload videos is by the method explained in my earlier post - using the image upload tool to embed either a YouTube or Google Video clip. So, if you want to share you clip here you'll need to upload it to one of those services first, then link to it in your post.

I hope this helps.
