Rafflecopter issues
Is anyone else having trouble with Rafflecopter tonight? I've been to 2 different blogs and it won't load tonight.

Yup, I keep trying it, because some of my favorite blogs are using it, but I am constantly having issues with it, it is way to buggy. I really , REALLY wish blogs would stop using it, at least until all these bugs are worked out. I can see it being an easy and faster way to enter, but not with all the bugs.

It says done each time you complete a step and submit it. Most don't have a comment.

It's funny how different computers/op systems/ etc. create problems for some and not others. Personally, I haven't had any issues with Rafflecopter and I think it makes things very easy. I love it when I see the form on a blog. This time, I'm lucky with a new innovation, that's not usually the case, so I am enjoying this.

I am not able to enter any of the blog sweeps that use Rafflecopter. Every time I have tried to leave a comment, I get this message "oh noes! it messed up. Plz try again"

I guess I'll start keeping a list of the blogs that use this, so that I won't waste time going to their sites.
