DEC 4: Shall be known as the day I had a holiday contesting freakout. Face Screaming In Fear

Are there more than usual, or is it just me?
There are definitely lots! But hey, maybe that means more wins for everybody.

You get a win, and you get a win....everybody gets a win!

Now that all the 12 Days of Christmas contests are here I have one question. When entering contests if you don't click if you want to receive their junky e-mails does this give you a lesser chance of winning? Yes or no?

I just entered a Global news contest and received this creepy message. Has anyone ever seen this before?

Thanks for entering, and I hope you have a good day.

It should not, but note that there are some contests (not talking about the Christmas ones specifically) that can require that you be subscribed to their newsletter right to the end of the contest for your entry to be valid.

This was the contest. I kinda just entered as a joke for my husband because he would be bored as heck if I brought him to this. I wonder if anyone else enters it if they will get that message as well? shen-yun contest
