The Loquax Blog

Our blog is where we get to write about the world of competitions, tell you our views about comping, offer help to promoters and keep you up to date with what's happening at Loquax. We'll try and share one or two fun things with you as well. You're welcome to comment on any of the articles!

In recent times we've looked at Automated Competition Entry Services that are swamping online competitions with entries! We've been investigating this issue and have useful information for promoters, including emails to look out for and how to avoid giving prizes to people who don't even visit their site.

We've also been looking at comping on both Facebook and Twitter and have blogged about FB cheats and also written a quick guide to Twitter comps. Don't forget to follow Loquax on both Facebook and Twitter

As is traditional for this time of year we like to put out a blog about advent competitions.

Are Online Competitions Rigged?
Posted on: October 16th, 2013

Last week an article appeared on Reddit titled “The Daily Telegraph rig their competitions to be won by friends/contributors”.

This they felt was unfair and contradictory […]
