Is it just me or is everyone not able to enter Pop Woodworking 30 days for dads sweepstakes? I’ve tried multiple computers and browsers but have had no success in actually being able to enter the contest. Anyone have any luck?
I can pull up the contest page and see all the prizes but cannot see how to actually enter the damned thing!

Same here. I couldn’t find any place to submit an entry. I even waited a minute to see if it popped up and nothing.

I noticed that the web page doesn’t mention the year? Search found 2017 sweepstakes page, and it shows year. Is this the right web page?

The page included this near the top:

“[Sweepstakes will open May 18, 2019 and run through June 16.]”

I have an account and I still can’t see a way to enter. Personally, I think they screwed up and forgot to turn on the entry form on the web page. Let’s face it, their parent company has filed for bankruptcy protection and the whole organization is doing more with less. It has to be like cancer working there. Would you go out of the way on your weekend to fix a web page if you weren’t sure about the longevity of your job? I’m sure this all gets fixed tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how they go about fixing the 2 days that were missed.

I received an email from them about the contest. I followed the link in the email and I am unable to enter the contest as well.

*TO EVERYONE I searched “30 Days for Dads Sweepstakes” and found

popularwoodworking.secondstreetapp.com that DOES have an entry form that works !!!!

Yesterday when I failed to find an entry on PopWood’s site, I sent them an email…but of course nobody’s there on weekends. So maybe tomorrow I’ll get an answer as to why their entry site isn’t working. So in the meantime, go to the above site and enter that way. Good luck fellow woodworkers !

My question is, did all of you write them an e-mail reminding them they have fired all the persons who had any semblance of a brain, and haven’t done anything correctly in a few years.

This is the 3rd contest in a row, that has gotten off to a terrible start, evidently because they aren’t sure of how the computer works in association with the innerweb.

So far I have gotten at least 8 e-mails about it. It’s like they know there is a problem, but they are too slo to fix it.

This is the most current one, starts on day 2 now. Still nothing to click to get back to them. DOH!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has a place at the bottom that says contact us, let em know they aren’t too bright, and it’s no surprise they are in whatever chapter they are in now. click right here

Surprisingly enough that link works.

Same problem here, but woodrascal’s link does appear to work. However if they are so messed up with the entry form, I wonder if there really is a sweepstakes at all. Has anyone here ever won a PPW sweepstakes?

Woodrasca’ls link DOES indeed work.. it takes you to another link which has two links. POPWOOD has two contests running concurrently. One is about to wind down at the end of the month, the other (the subject of this post) ends on Fathers day. click the link.. then click the link again for the contest you wish to enter
