Hang on a cotton pickin’ minute

I just spent 10 minutes or so completing a survey on current music trends (and I didn’t mention Cilla Black once!) in the vain hope of being in the draw to win an iRiver only to get to the end and realise that not once did I get asked for an email address or any means of notifying me when if I win. Harrumph.

The survey is being run by My Voice for Channel 4 Radio. The hyperlink in the publicity email that led me there does contain a long string of letters and digits, but since that was three lines long and no longer worked as a hyperlink, I used the alternative link. Maybe the identifier is in the unclickable link. Time to go cook supper then.

    Here I am and it’s working great. Just for kicks, I think you should call the Radio 4 people and tell them their survey people are playing dirty tricks. Then let us know how they handle it.

    Thank you Mary – but take time out to ring Channel 4 Radio? I’m far too busy blitzing my score at Valentine Crush!

    You did it again…sucked me and contributed to my addiction. Damn You Valentine Crush!

    I’m sorry! If it helps, I’m still sat here playing it, bleary eyed and desperate for my bed. And my score is decreasing each time now rather than increasing. I promise that when I get below 20,000 I’ll call it a night.

    My eyes are so knackered that the hearts look more like men’s y-fronts now. I’m pretending to “hit” them each time ;-)

    Hi there,
    Just came across this link when surfing on the web. Users were indeed pre-identified by a unique link so C4 did not need to ask for email again.
    All the best,
    id (from MyVoice).
