    Thanks for the tips, I kinda know what you mean, I like to think I can spot a fake from a mile away especially on Youtube and Twitter, on Twitter it's pretty easy all you have to do is type their name and fake and you will see pretty fast if they are fake, 4 out of 1500, Really?
    Yeah. If you think about it it's more or less within the mean. Let's assume 500 of them were fake (I'm being optimistic here). If I divide the number of my entries with the total of entries of a contest it's normally something like 0,1%, or 1 to 1000 thousand.

    Well it had a global symbol on the site it was listed. Yeah your right though. More often that not there is nothing to read when you click the rules section on gleam so I didn't bother.

    Please do. Forgive for saying it but it's the least you can do if you are earning extra entries for everyone of us you enters the contest through the links you post.

    I can honestly say that I have seen no increase in my entries at all from these posts. Why that is I can't say. I also post contest's that have nothing linking extra entries to me.
    They give me extra post's towards VRheads contest's that's a given but there is nothing stopping others from posting them before me.
    I also removed a good 20 posts a while back that were outdated. I will continue to do this after VRheads contests end.

    I think in some cases people posting here may get referrals, that is extra entries and in other cases not. The bottom line is that we are try to help each other win prizes and THAT is the most important thing! Right?

    I made a recommendation in the main post of the thread for the people to read the fine print in the Giveaway which decide to enter, sometimes it says Global and the Widget won't work in some countries and sometimes the information is maybe in one Video not linked to the Widget.

    I also read you said the sdqk are fake, I don't think it's accurate, since my HyperX Revolver were won in one of those, a lot of times the announcement is made in one particular social media, for example LootCrate doesn't post their winner in the Gleam widget but they do it in the Winners page (sometimes they simply don't post it at all).

    And about it, it's just contest, you have to be careful enough to decide in which one you decide to enter, not all messages here are just Giveaways links, not all are referrals (BTW I kind of remember VirtuaTyKing said he is from UK, so the US and Canada link from the contest won't help him at all) and I think I'm who is posting more here, I am not winning more than the average, but the thing is, for me it's a game I use to say "I enter in giveaways as a sport" and because I think it's the healthiest way to do it.

    I always try not to share my real information in social networks, so my Twitter, Facebook may have one or two real pictures, not other data there is real, I really recommend to create another social network profile if you want to participate on a lot of contest and don't care about your info.

    And of course, I invite (all) to share the link you have and don't find here.

    When I won a headphones I suggested to Kingston - HyperX to post it everywhere in order to show they selected the winner and delivered the prize and they didn't, I was sharing it in several networks tagging them and they didn't care.

    For me was really weird, I think they don't care about the people like the picture, lol

    Agreed, i think the main objective here is to help each other win something new and shiny.

    By sharing give ways you are actually lowering your chances of winning.
    Reason: you get 1 entry for every person that uses your link, but that person can get 20 entries for themselves by completing all the tasks. Which means your odds just went down lol. ^_^

    So that may explain why I feel like I'm losing more often than before lol...

    Well I don't care, I will keep sharing it, the referrals and the non referrals giveaways.

    But may sound silly, I enjoy sharing the info for others to win, so even if I'm not winning I feel good about the sharing.
