Loquax News

We like to tell our users what’s happening at Loquax and here’s where you’ll find the latest news from ‘Duck Towers’ (actually we don’t live in a tower and it’s not even Duck named). Do keep an eye on this section and the Loquax Forums so you don’t miss out on important announcements.


Long before the days of Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter and Tinder there came Loquax. Twenty very long years ago, myself and Kirsty, sat down and cobbled together our first version of the website. As today is our anniversary we’ve been looking back at old versions of the site courtesy of Wayback.org. Not only do they […]


It’s now five years – yes five years – since Loquax evolved into a competition listing service where the comps are predominantly posted by the community. Back in 2013 the site was given little or no chance of survival. A “dinosaur” of a site ready for extinction as one person put it. However, thanks to […]


This week we’ve made some adjustments to our competition tracking reporting pages. Firstly, we still do have a competition tracker – in fact we have two – one is the old legacy version which relied on clicking the “thanks” button whilst the other is the “quacker tracker” which involves clicking on the ducks or crosses […]


It seems an age ago since the Loquax Team embarked on revamping the way your forum posts appeared as competition listings. What started out as a “shouldn’t take too long job” has taken a little bit longer than anticipated. However we hope you think it’s been worthwhile and thank you for being patient. With the […]


Most compers will be fully aware of The Free Postcode Lottery. At launch the site was offering daily visitors the chance to win £10 if they matched the winning postcode. Over time the site has mushroomed in to a major UK internet destination and now offers over £700 a day in giveaways. Which isn’t bad […]


In case you hadn’t realised, Loquax runs the giveaway site over at www.prizedraws.co.uk. We set it up a couple of years ago as a fun giveaway site. Our aim was to simply offer you guys the chance to win some slightly different prizes plus it gave us a chance to plug some of other sites […]


It’s almost that most wonderful time of the year when advent competitions appear from every where. As we mentioned a few weeks back advent comps seem to have taken on a whole new meaning with anything festive and daily entry falling under the advent banner. Anyway the real things will start on the 1st December […]


Did you know that last year we didn’t write about advent competitions? Well we didn’t – and so to make up for it we’re unleashing an earlier than usual post about that most wonderful time of the year. We don’t know when it happened but the term “advent” in the comping world has changed meaning […]


At the start of the month we launched a competition in association with Urban Surfer. This – as some have noted – the first Loquax giveaway for some time but that’s not entirely true. It’s the first Loquax giveaway on Loquax for some time however we have been dishing out prizes in other ways. To […]


One question that has cropped up since we revamped our listings is about Facebook and Twitter competitions. Users looking for lists of giveaways especially on the popular #WinWednesday and #FreebieFriday may not be actually aware that these competitions do appear on the site. First off, if a competition on Facebook or Twitter has a long […]
