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 […]

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 […]

Although we’ve been making regular posts to the forums about tweaks and changes we’ve made to the new forum competition listings – we haven’t really covered them here on the blog. With the main site’s closing soon pages due to end on 1st February we’ll cover briefly what you can do within the forum set […]

When we announced our decision to stop listing competitions two weeks ago we envisaged that Loquax’s days as a listing service would come to an end. However, the forums are slowly becoming the home of a new set-up as users and promoters post there as opposed to the main site. First off, let us clarify […]

Every now and then we look through our logs and spot questions about Loquax that people are trying to find answers for. We think we probably need to do a better search system on the site as a lot of the answers are around – plus of course you’re more than welcome to pop a […]
