I did not click on the disc icon as I always do when I entered about 100 new sweeps yesterday - nope, they aren't in MY Sweeps today - I'll continue to 'waste my time' because I keep losing these out of my sweeps if I don't!

If the icon isn't necessary, why not get rid of it?

Yes, Scibba, I have had that same experience, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't! Actually I remember Brent posting about this same thing a while ago, and I made sure to just go to another sweeps page when checkmarking MySweeps. No, it doesn't always work!

I've had a "hit & miss experience" with saving by just advancing to the next page so I watch it
especially with the 24-hr sweeps.

I never knew this. Thanks! No telling how many I've missed out on.

This is good to know, because sometimes I go to the next page, and then think: oh, wait, did I save that/those entries I just entered? Then I go back, and they are saved.

The Save/Disk icon (the little green disk graphic) that appears in the upper-right corner of the page anytime you make changes to MySweeps isn't necessary at all.

Your MySweeps changes (adding or deleting a sweep, recording an entry, etc.) are automatically saved each time you go to another web page in the sweepstakes directory (that is, any page not in the forums).

The only time your MySweeps changes won't be automatically saved is when you don't go to another web page in the sweepstakes directory after making the changes.

For example, let's say you're doing your Dailies in MySweeps and you're recording your entries as you make them. When you're done with page one, all you have to do is go straight on to page two and your changes will automatically be saved without having to click on the Save/Disk icon at all.

Another example, if you're going through the New Sweepstakes section and adding the sweeps you like to MySweeps as you go, your changes will be automatically saved when you continue on to the next page. The next page can be the next New Sweepstakes page or anywhere at all in the sweepstakes directory (anywhere but the forums).

The only time your MySweeps changes won't be automatically saved is when you don't go to another page in the sweepstakes directory after making changes.

For example, if you're on your last page of MySweeps for the day and recording the entries as you go, the changes won't be saved if you leave OLS or close your browser without first going to another web page in the OLS sweepstakes directory.

To sum it up:
  1. MySweeps changes aren't be saved until you load another web page in the sweepstakes directory (i.e. any page not in the forums).

  2. Clicking on the Save/Disk icon (the little green disk) essentially just reloads the page you're currently viewing. Continuing on to the next page (or any page for that matter) in the sweepstakes directory will accomplish exactly the same thing, your MySweeps changes will automatically be saved.

  3. As long as you don't make any MySweeps changes on the very last page you view in the OLS sweepstakes directory during your visit, your MySweeps changes will automatically be saved. There are a few exceptions where they will be saved anyway, even then.

  4. Logging out will also automatically save any changes you might have made to MySweeps.

hmmm..I've had them not save when doing my sweeps. And no...I was not visiting the forums at the time. I still hit the disk on every page because I have had trouble with this.

When I click on "link" to save a sweep in my favorites to do later (like the blog sweeps because they are time consuming), if I clicked on any sweeps for saving in My Sweeps or added an entry before clicking on link, when I click the back button to go back to the previous page, everything I did is gone. So in this instance this does not work
