Hi - when i click on the win fabric for life page i get this:

403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

 

I am logged in as premium member... thought we could enter every day...is the contest over or is this a technical problem?  thanks.

Hi greenmonstr,

Are you clicking on the link above in the red nav bar that says Win Fabric for Life? Or where was this broken link?

Try this one!

If you click on Contest in the cream bar across the top, then click on the Fabric for Life Sweepstakes link (first one) you will see the error she is talking about.  It is a broken link.

This is what happened to me last week when I couldn't access the Block Party contest.  Liz put me in, anyway, but I was under the impression that because I wasn't a paying member I was not allowed.  Then I discovered by accident that I COULD get in (but I honestly don't remember how I found out).  Anyway, the error message was because I got into the "CONTEST" area, so watch out!

Hi Bandmama,

I just went in and clicked on this link (visual below) and it worked fine for me - are you having troubles when you click on that link too?

I am getting this error both on the win fabric for life link on the home page and on the fabric for life sweepstakes link.  I can't find a place where it wll work.

 

*** new info - I logged out, deleted temp internet files, closed IE, came back to website, logged in again, and the link on the home page didn't work but the one on the contests page did work.

Yes.  I got the same error by clicking on that link.  I can try and delete my temp. inet files and try again too though.  I went outside of the website, googled Fabric for Life contest and found a back door link that way.  On the other hand, for what it's worth mine is one of the accounts that got dropped in the tranfer over for the new QNNtv.  Do you think that could have anything at all to do with it since some can access the link and others can not?  Which browser do you use?  My default is internet explorer but I could also try it in firefox or google chrome if that would help.

 

ETA that I just tried it again and it worked.  Hmmm.  Maybe it was a temporary glitch OR perhaps too many of us were hitting the link at the same time trying to win that great prize :-).
