I’ve done several Rafflecopter giveaways now, and I’ve started to notice something with my two current giveaways. I have people circumventing the mandatory entry, which, in both cases, is to leave a comment on the giveaway post. I don’t see where anyone should have a problem with that. Its’ easy to do and usually takes less than a minute. Up until last months giveaway, this hasn’t been an issue.
I’m not entirely sure what to do at this point. I don’t think that it’s fair to readers who really do the mandatory entry to allow others to cheat. Do I let it slide, remove entries, or just pick a different winner (if the one picked has circumvented)?
UPDATE 11/11 – Thanks for all the advice so far. I went back and noted that anyone who cheats will void all their entries in big, bold font. A hour later, someone did it again. So…ehh….
