Raffle entries!????

Just claimed my "entry" but the site is then telling me that I have already entered (probably did do that a few days ago!) - and yet the site is still telling me "You are currently eligible for 1 general raffle entries and 0 grand prize raffle entries."

Admins - please investigate and fix!

As far as I know, that's how it's supposed to work...the notification for your eligibility doesn't reset when you post in the raffle threads. It stays at whatever levels you're eligible for. That's how it's working for me, and how it worked last month

The number shown is your total number if entries, not the unclaimed number.

Thanks for the clarification - but not what I would have expected!

as I understand the rules

once you enter the general raffle, you're done, only one entry per member allowed

once you enter the grand prize raffle, you are automatically awarded multiple chances based on every additional 100 posts made during the time of the contest

- as far as I know, there is no maximum number of chances you can accumulate

and additional " posts " are awarded based on every review you post during the time of the contest [ in October it was 10 per review, I think it is 20 for the current contest ]

This afternoon I claimed the grand raffle entry after completing 100 posts. Soon after that, I posted the lens review. To my understanding, I should have seen 20 more posts on my "counting bar" - but I don't. Am I missing something?

Additional entries from reviewers will be calculated automatically at the end of the event, and will be stated in a post before I draw the overall winner. They are not, however, shown in the progress bar. Once you've posted in the grand prize thread, you don't need to take further action to get additional entries (beyond posting away ).
