Suggest a Contest

Have you found a great contest you want to share with your friends?  You can let them know about the contest by suggesting it to them in YoWinner.  To suggest a contest you first click the “Suggest Contest” link on the contest page.

A new area will open up and you can either enter a friends email address (if they’re not a member of YoWinner) or start typing their name and it will automatically complete their name for you.


How To Add A Friend

YoWinner is much more fun when you have some friends to share contests with.  It’s very easy to add someone as a friend.  You’ll see people’s names in various places on the site.  Just click on their name and it will take you to their My YoWinner page.

What’s Going On At YoWinner?

You may have noticed some things have changed on YoWinner….

We’ve been listening to your suggestions over the past year, and have tried to make the site easier and more fun to use.  The first thing you might be wondering is where your points have gone?  You still have them, we’ve just moved them from the top right hand corner of the site to your new My YoWinner page.  We’ve replaced the points with your status, which you can change whenever you like, just by hovering over them.

The biggest change to the site is the new My YoWinner page.  Now all your favorite contests are easier to find, allow with how often you can enter them.  You always can see your friends and the latest chatter in your Chatterbox.

A new page has been created for you and your friends to talk.  It’s called the Chatterbox.

We’ve enabled notifications to let you know what your friends are doing on YoWinner.  You can decide what notifications you want to receive, and they will be sent to you by email.

There are lots of smaller changes that we hope makes it easier to use the site.  We’d love to hear what you think of the new YoWinner!


What Is The Chatterbox?

You might be wondering what your Chatterbox is?  It’s an easy way to chat with your YoWinner friends.  Everyone has their own Chatterbox and it contain whatever friends have said to you.  Once they leave a comment, your can hit reply and say something in their Chatterbox.

There are a number of ways to edit your photo.  The first is selecting the Manage Profile item in your personal menu.

The second is selecting Change Picture from under your photo on your My YoWinner page.

The third is selecting Change Picture from under your photo on your Chatterbox page.

How To Manage Your Notifications

Later on this week you may start to receive some notifications from YoWinner.  They will be sent to let you know if there is any activity happening on YoWinner that relates to you.  If someone requests you as a friend, recommends a contest, or sends you a message you’ll receive an email to let you know.

We really hope you’ll enjoy this new feature but if you’d like to change what notifications you receive, or turn them off entirely we’ve made it very easy.

The first way to change them is to log into YoWinner, and select the “Manage Profile” item from your main menu

Once on the Manage Profile page, you can expand the “Notification Preferences” section by clicking on the title.  From there, you can turn off your notifications by unchecking the specific notifications and finally clicking the “Update Profile” button.

The second way to change your preferences is directly from your email.  At the bottom of every notification email is a link that will take you directly to your Manage Profile page where you can change your settings.

Hope you enjoy the new feature!
