About the Chat Page

Good Afternoon Badgers!

I hope you’re all well. Our developers are getting the new changes to the site underway next week. Once they’ve finished the first batch, we’ll have a new (better) updates page where we can let you know what’s coming and what’s changing without cluttering up the blog where we’re hoping to blog more about other things πŸ™‚

Anyway…. to the reason for this post. We’ve added a Chat page… but I wanted your feedback on how you’d like the chat sections to work across the site.

At the moment, each page should use its own so the topic can be on what the page is about… which I’m not convinced by (except on the Referrals page). So here’s the plan:

Replace all Facebook comments with Disqus. You can use your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts to sign up or just sign up with Disqus… either way, it’s nothing to do with us, so please check your mail settings πŸ™‚

The reason we’re going to do this is to give more chance for people to chat who don’t want to be forced to use their Facebook account.

We’ve added a Chat page where we’ll have both the Disqus chat and the Facebook chat. There might be a little moving around but please bear with us. We’re trying to make sure that the site load speed isn’t affected by all this and Facebook slows the page load quite a bit really πŸ™‚

Ideas welcome in the comments or by contacting us πŸ™‚

Have a good day πŸ™‚

Andy

Coming soon :-)

Good afternoon Badgers!

I wanted to give you a quick update on some changes we’re hoping to add to the site in the next few weeks or so.

Leaderboard
We were asked about a leaderboard on the draw pages. It was something we’d considered before but as we chatted on comments about it, we’ve now decided not to implement something at this time. We couldn’t settle on a format we liked that so we’ve put it to one side for now.

Chat & Comments
We’ve been worried about the Facebook comments for a while now as they do slow down load times on the page. We’ve tried Disqus at the bottom of the page, so we are going to choose one or the other. I think as some people don’t like Facebook or don’t want everyone to know what they’re up to commenting on pages etc, we’re likely to choose Disqus for comments across the site. However… for those that would just like to have a natter and chat about all sorts, I think we’ll add a new Chat page with both Disqus and Facebook comments on so you can still chat together.Β  This is only a maybe at the moment, but I think keeping it moderated that way would be much easier πŸ™‚ I hope that sounds ok to everyone.

Adverts on the site
We’re still trialling new networks and ensuring we get things right but in the next month we’ll be moving to better rotation systems and management. It’ll allow us to better add different ones in different places. We’ll also be making sure to not stuff too many ads on site and we’ll be featuring other lottery sites in the rotations to help you all remember that though we’re the best Badger site, there are others available too πŸ™‚

Business-to-Business
We’ll also be working heavily on the B2B page to offer businesses across the country the chance to sponsor a draw. It’s our hope that we can help spread the word about businesses that can offer prizes or services to anyone within the UK. If you know anyone that might be interested in this, please do let them know.

Much, much, much more….
We’ve lots of updates coming soon. Some behind the scenes and some more visible. We’ll be updating the Updates page to have a counter so you can see when we’ve posted something on there (or at least that’s the plan). We’ll also be adding much more features that you will see, with the hope of a new game for instant wins…. as always… for free πŸ™‚

Enjoy the weekend and don’t forget to spread the word. The more badgers, the more we can give away πŸ™‚

Andy

Chat on the site? :-)

Hello…. kinda making this up as I go.. so bear with me.

Do you want a chat page? I’ve already been asked a couple of times if we can implement a chat that’s not based around Facebook…. so we are…. but how would you like it adding?

We’ve a couple of options…

Add something like the addition I’ve just made on the Referrals page…. WAIT!… don’t check yet… hang on… It’s called Disqus and it’s pretty simple to use I think. It seems to load well and looks pretty good.

or… a Forum. Where we can add different boards for different things.

I think at the moment to save money you’d need to sign up to either… but Disqus looks simple and we could hook a forum into your Badger the Button account but it’d cost quite a bit of money so we’d really prefer not to do that yet.

Also…. we have an Updates (& Suggestions) page now… or will do when I finish it… so please leave any comments on there if you can πŸ™‚

Thanks and Happy weekend πŸ™‚

Help us launch the Weekly Draw :-)

Happy Weekend Badgers!

We’ve already hinted that the site is nearly paying for itself and we’d like to be able to give away more. To do this we set a new players target of 1000 but as it’s been holidays and things, we’ve done just over half of that. It’s great to see so many new players and we’d love to see more.

We need your help spreading the word so to see how you can help,Β  please read on πŸ™‚

What we’d really appreciate is you all spreading the word. Not just by using your referral links but by perhaps leaving a Review for us on our Facebook Page. It really helps new users to see that we’re genuine and don’t send out spam emails all the time… just the odd update (We’re adding a Newsletter soon so you can opt in to more regular news emails) πŸ™‚

Also if you can tweet about us or just tell anyone face to face that’d be great πŸ™‚

WIN AGAIN ON FACEBOOK
———————

In addition to this, please do Like our Facebook page as we’ll be having another competition soon to help achieve this goal. A little different from the last.

We’ll be posting soon about our user target to launch the Weekly Draw. We need as many of you as possible sharing the post and asking others to share. When we reach the new user target… OR 5,000 shares, we’ll open the weekly draw with a Β£20 per week prize. If we reach 10,000 or more we’ll start the draw at Β£40 per week…. after that… who knows, it really does depend on how many new users we get πŸ™‚

Also if you Like the post, we’ll be choosing someone to receive a Β£50 Amazon Voucher.

I’ll post again here and on Twitter when we launch the new Facebook competition…. so remember to Share it to help launch the weekly draw and Like it to win a voucher πŸ™‚

Good Luck

Andy

EDIT: Added in that we’ll launch the Weekly Draw when we reach our user target OR the 5k shares on the post we’ll add to Facebook πŸ™‚

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Badgers!

We hope 2017 will be a great year for you all.

The monthly draw is now Live so head there and start badgering πŸ™‚

Good Luck!

Weekly Needs You!

OUR GAMES ARTWORK-04

Badgers, we need your help!

We already have the daily draw, and the monthly draw will be starting January 1st 2017… but we want to give you even more chances to win!

We’ve done some number crunching and to make it happen we need 1000 more players!

So PLEASE help us and use your referral links, talk to your friends or even complete strangers…. you’re over 18 so it’s ok. πŸ™‚

It’d be great to get even more than a thousand new Badgers to join and play, and of course the more people who play, the more get to give away.

If you have any ideas to help us do this, get in touch on our contact us page!

Andy

Launch of the Monthly Draw...

As mentioned in my last post, we’ll be launching the Monthly Draw soon and I’ve got a few more details for you.

We’ll be starting the countdown very soon, perhaps even already…

The first Monthly Draw will open on New Years Day 2017 and will run until the end of the month. The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their prize. If not, it will rollover.

The return times will be a bit longer than the daily draw. Your bonus will increase by 50p the first time you click in each monthly draw.

The prize will be a lovely Β£100 + your bonus. πŸ™‚

Andy

What's coming in 2017...

We wanted to give you an update about the site, the future and what’s coming and going in the next few months.

Advert Rollout
We’re working really hard behind the scenes to test advert providers andΒ over the next few weeks we’ll be trialling different placements and adverts. The site layout may change slightly to accommodate them but we want to make sure they don’t clutter up things.

#ReferralFriday
We’ll be stopping #ReferralFriday at the end of December. We’d like the system to handle things better and have more configuration and automation to it, so we’ve decided to get a better idea written out and will hopefully relaunch a more integrated system in a few months. We’d like to thank all those that have shared us, and please do keep telling everyone about us.

Launch of the Monthly Draw
Though the site isn’t quite paying for itself yet, we’ve decided to launch an additional draw. We’re hoping that the extra prize will help bring in some new players and with all your help sharing and spreading the word, we’re really hoping to have things paying for themselves within the next couple of months. There’ll be more details coming about this very soon, so keep an eye out.

Lotteries
We’ll be adding a page where you can find links to sites like ours that give away money for free. As we add them, we’ll be posting about them on the Blog and will try to ensure they’re all as real as us πŸ™‚

Bonuses, Games and more…
We have some fantastic ideas and plans for the future of the siteΒ and we’re hoping over the coming months to get things into development.Β We have a great company doing the programming for us so they’re ready to get things underway when we can afford them.

There’s the Weekly Draw to launch, we’ll have more one-off Voucher and Prize draws but the best things are still on paper. We have 4 or 5 ideas for completely different Badger The Button games which work in a similar way, but with nice twists to make things a bit more fun. We also have ideas to expand the bonus system and bring a little fun there too… but all this depends on funding those changes.

We hope you’ll all keep sharing the site and spreading the word and if you’ve any suggestions, do get in touch as we’re always open to your thoughts πŸ™‚

Andy & Kirsty
