    Hi Di, Could you please add the Cambridgeshire Compers group to the list? https://www.facebook.com/groups/227359067600522/328636520806109/?notif_t=like&notif_id=1473099219791184

    Thanks!

    One question Superlucky Di if numerous members are constantly posting giveaways to your group how do you manage to remove old posts? When ever I share anything to any group I ALWAYS put in a description at least the end date. Makes cleaning up a bit easier. I find a lot of groups, members either unaware how to remove their shared posts, forget or are lazy when it comes to the housecleaning.

    • Thanks for the comment Mark! I have to admit, I’ve never once deleted an old post in a group – I think if people want to use a more organised format, they use a competition forum such as Compers News, MSE, or Loquax. I just don’t think Facebook is designed to be organised in a way that forums are, and you’re right – it simply takes too much time to do the ‘housekeeping’! I think the local groups work well as the number of posts is limited, but I just don’t think sharing comps in a group works once you get over 500 or so active members!

    Great tips as always Superlucky Di.
    I’ve created a group focused on international giveaways. I find sorting through giveaways listed in most sites/groups spend too much time wading through T&C’s etc to find out if they are worldwide. For now will have to message me if anyone is keen and willing to contribute.
    The group I would describe as unique. I’ve decided put my handy organisation techniques into a Facebook group with a few useful resources.

    • Thanks Steve – I’ll edit into the list and have also sent a join request as I often look out for London comps too!

        Thanks for adding the group to your list, Di! I’ve received and approved your join request. It’s great to have comping royalty amongst our members! 😉 Hope you find some new & interesting comps from the group.
