How Do You Solve A Problem Like Advent Comps?

Published on 2nd December 2011

With their being so many advent competitions some of you have told us you’ve found the lists we have quite daunting and that it’s difficult to keep track. You also wanted to be able to discard some of the ones you didn’t much care for! We think our two advent lists (web advents and facebook advents) are pretty comprehensive – but surely we couldn’t make the better?

Well yes we can!

Next to each advent listing you will now see a grey duck and a red cross !

The grey Santa Duck works like our day to day “Quacker Tracker” Go to the competition, enter it, click the duck and it’ll go yellow and the listing fades out. The beauty of this version is that come midnight, when the advents begin again – duck turns grey and you’re on your way again! Note that this is independent to the day to day version!

But what about those advents you want to ignore? Well click the red cross and you’ll find the competition fades. However, come midnight when the grey ducks all return, the red crossed comps will stay faded.

Note that we’ve done as much testing of this as we can and it should work. If something goes wrong, for example, come midnight something goes awry then don’t panic as it’ll be fixed in the morning.

Anyway, we hope that this feature really makes going through those advent competitions a lot simpler. If you like it, then please do tell your friends and other compers just how good Loquax is to you.
