Opened before 9am!
I'm in the ballot - wheeeee.
Aligator - I saw the thank you screen. It came up after the credit card details confirmation screen.
I missed out on this last week because I had omitted to put in enough phone nubmers and the system automatically changed my preference from not bequeath to bequeath my entre fee . Was a bit shocked by that and exited the site!
Oldprof - seems like you've fallen into that haze of entering your payment details into websites which you know are bad for you....
Still, at least youre not alone!
I stayed home this morning to enter (as being a slow coach I didn't get in in-time for the 1st phase...dont think I even checked until the Tuesday!). I don't trust the internet connection at work, so made a coffee, turned my PC on, went to the site about 8.30ish and it was there! So I entered with no problems!
Alligator: I didn't get a screen that just said "THANK YOU", but the final screen does say "Thank-you" and I also got a confirmation email from WorldPay, and another from FLM saying "Thank you for entering the Flora London Marathon 2009 online entry ballot......." So I think this is all correct.
If you're still not sure, dont enter again (as that will void the 1st one if it worked), but phone them up, the number in the email was 020 7902 0200.
Alligator, I too got a confirmation email to say I had entered the ballot.
Oldprof, I cannot believe I have entered again but I'd hate to think that I might miss registration and maybe it will close again this week!!
The confirmation email took a little while but came through, may take longer as more register.
At 8.50 I was over 84000, so probably 5000 plus already entered before 9 am. Would expect them to close before midday at this rate, so probably 10 am if there's a mad rush and the system can cope!
Mrs 20 entered OK, currently I can't as "WorldPay" seems unable to take payments - just pauses & times out immediately.
The phone number for paper entries has disappeared from the FLM site & their queries phone number is permanently engaged,
