With regards to the book and the competition for the DS do we know if we are one of the first 250 to join?

Hope I'm in for the DS Lite especially!

I think I read on another thread that they're sorting out the list of first 250 members, some time next week

Thankyou. I need a DS Lite. smile

Notsogrand Sat 07-May-11 18:23:22

I hope you get one then! I wouldn't know what to do with one blush

Had six weeks off work recently after an operation and my daughter lent me hers. I really enjoyed it.
Had to keep trying to beat my highest scores.
Did get a little addictive though.
Gave it back once I went back to work.

Just to clarify, everyone who joins before 6 June (ie everyone on the thread!) will be entered into the comp for the DSis. Which is a good thing for those who need a DSi grin.
If you were a quick off the mark and one of the first 250 to join, you will also win a copy of Benny and Shrimp.
Hope that clears things up

What IS a DS Lite?

How many members of Gransnet are there so far? It would be useful to be able to see a list of our names (but without showing any details we want kept private - like our hip sizes!!!)

What a great website this is - and I only joined yesterday.

Yes Josie, I'd love to know how many members - not even for the book/dsi, just because I'm a bit nosey grin . It's fascinating seeing gn grow, esp as I wasnt there right at the start of mn - I was 16,000th and felt like an outsider!!

I would like to know how people are going to receive their prizes, if they win one.

I cant remember giving my address out, only my postcode, and email address. Does this mean i need to keep checking my emails, as its not something i do with any regularity.

JosieGransnet (GNHQ) Tue 10-May-11 14:31:01

Ooh good question! We will be emailing the first 250 members with an address form, which you can fill out so that we can send you a book.

We won't keep your address details on our system, and it'll only be used for this prize. So lucyjordan you might need to keep checking your emails if you think it might be you!

thanks for the reply i will check my emails, but doubt id be so lucky.

pamplemousse Tue 10-May-11 17:52:54

Just going to check my e mails. I am sure I got in quite early.hmm

JosieGransnet (GNHQ) Thu 12-May-11 10:38:43

So sorry for the delay here folks, we haven't sent the email out yet. Minor delays our end which hopefully will be sorted by tomorrow. I will post when we've sent it so that you can check.

Good luck!

My book email arrived this afternoon. smile

JosieGransnet (GNHQ) Fri 13-May-11 15:56:27

We've now sent out the email telling the first 250 members to sign up that they've won, so check your email!

Best of luck, and if you didn't win a book, but still want to take part in our Book Club (which we hope you will) you can buy the book here and join us in discussing it.

BecauseImWorthIt Fri 13-May-11 19:15:09

Josie - I haven't had an e-mail, and I was definitely one of the first to sign up! And, someone I know who signed up after me has been told she has won a book.

It's not faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaair!

jangly Fri 13-May-11 19:21:41

I haven't got one either BecauseImWorthit and I must have been pretty close behind you. sniff! (don't actually want one, it sounds awful, but that's not the point) grin

BecauseImWorthIt Fri 13-May-11 19:26:32

It's the principle, isn't it, jangly?! grin

jangly Fri 13-May-11 19:28:42

Yeah. Where's the fairness?! grin

crazynanna Fri 13-May-11 19:38:51

I joined so early I was the only person talking to me....and no book!!!hmm

'Tis likely because I swear grin

TwinsetandPearls Fri 13-May-11 20:18:03

I didn't get an email either. Must have got lost in the post.

JosieGransnet (GNHQ) Mon 16-May-11 15:46:26

Sorry to everyone that didn't get a book - double check your spam filter BIWI. We hope that you'll all come and discuss it anyway - it's our first ever Book Club, so it's an exciting one for us!

Divawithattitude Tue 17-May-11 09:48:21

or me, perhaps lots of people registered and have not posted at all in the first few days.

GillieB Tue 17-May-11 11:15:05

I'm a winner - I found the email about the book when I checked my mail at the weekend! I know I joined on the first day - or the day that the Daily Telegraph said the site was starting.

BecauseImWorthIt Sat 21-May-11 15:36:39

Hurrah! I'm getting a book! Thanks, Gransnet.
