    I often let Chrome automatically fill in some of the form entry parameters, such as the address. Does this constitute “automated software” that would be flagged somehow?

    Letting autofill to complete a form would not count against you. The automated software that gets you in trouble are things like scripts written to enter multiple times using fake email accounts.

    Occasionaly, I am unable to select my year of birth (1928) in the drop down box because the years listed do not go back that far,even though the rules do not exclude my age. Sometimes there is no information so that I can report the problem to those responsible for the site.

    I have a question about a sweepstakes. It seems odd that a sweepstakes will tell you this is the final step about 5 times and then keep sending the same paperwork on and on again. I really do not understand. I was told I was eligible for with the winning number. They even said I was very close. Then, I received a letter giving me another number stating yet another final step and another date down the road some one and a half to two months. I do not understand this kind of sweepstakes. They even stated they would be driving to my home, gave me the address. I’ve understood until all of the final steps, change of winning number and change of date further away. Can you explain this?

      That doesn’t sound like a valid Sweepstakes….Ask for the Full Rules so you can review them and see if the Sweepstakes is even legal.
