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.

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 […]

Just when you think there’s not much else left to do – other than tidy up a few odds and ends – someone comes along with another request. In this case a user wanted to know whether we could provide options to hide competitions by prize category. We have opt-outs for type of competition so […]

Some compers love statistics and will keep records of every comp entered, prize won etc. Others will use a clicker to count every comp they’ve entered too. Whilst we suspect those who do that kind of rigorous book keeping will continue with their totting up methods we have come up with a cunning plan to […]

Now that the new system is ticking along nicely we’re now busy tidying things up a bit. First of all we’ve added a boatload of listing options to new, closing, list by prize and list by competition type. This means you will be usally able to sort each list by date added, closing date, sitename, […]

Although we’ve made changes to the site recently, the Loquax Team are still firmly “retired” when it comes to posting competitions. This means that the baton remains with users and promoters to ensure that the site is well populated with the latest prizes and promos. As well as improving the listings we’ve also been tweaking […]

At the start of this week we had a forum competition listing system that whilst functional was always a “fix” that materialised from the changes on Loquax 2.5 years ago. In fairness that system could have stayed in place but we’ve always felt it could be better. We’d managed to do direct links and tracking […]

It’s now 2.5 years since Loquax’s competition listings moved to the forums and as previously alluded to in another blog post we’ve been looking at how we can develop things. The forum format has been great for posting competitions but it’s now always the best for entering – especially when there are so many comps […]
