    Thank you for all your comments so far, I'll make sure to keep checking back and add more answers to questions as we go along.  Here's what I've got so far...

     

    Will I be penalised for incorrect guesses?
    Absolutely not. You can get as many wrong guesses as you want and it won't make a difference.

    Should I search for more codes across the Virgin Empire?
    If you want to. You can enter any codes you stumble across on Virgin accounts / sources. They are all 'safe' to use.

    What shouldn't I do?
    We don't recommend trying to guess future codes by inputting random words and phrases as it could take you out of the running for the weekly prize draws we'll be holding (it won't disqualify you from Rock Your World though). This also means we don't recommend entering codes you find posted by non-Virgin accounts because they may be sharing one of these codes. 

    What are the weekly prize draws?
    Each week this month there will be a prize draw tile on the app that gives you another chance to win something awesome. To enter you will to...

    • Tap the Enter button on the tile.
    • Get at least 5 of the 7 codes from our daily challenges that week.

    You can get more than 5 codes and still be entered. The codes you need to enter to play must be entered in that specific week, which is why guessing future codes isn't advised just in case.

    Who gets disqualified from Rock Your World?
    We may disqualify you if your conduct is contrary to the spirit or intention of the Competition including using bots to input Codes, or posting any Codes relating to this Competition online or otherwise making them available to other Entrants.

    I love it <3
    I'm a tad confused as to being allowed to hunt for more clues due to disqualification rules so I'm not hunting for more as yet!
    I love the interaction with the VR community too

    I love the 5 of 7 weekly draw. Keys To The Kasbah was quite time consuming so a straight up hunt so soon may have been too much. The 5 of 7 draws mean hunting could be counterproductive until the end. The breathing space is appreciated here. Prizes are amazing as ever. You guys certainly do Rock!

    I loved the puzzles on keys, so more of that would be amazing x

    I like it, I do worry that I'm missing out on codes tho, I don't do Facebook and I'm only verified with Virgin Atlantic so I haven't had the codes that those using virgin trains get, (living in the middle of the Welsh countryside no need for trains) I always use virgin holidays so would be nice to get that verified or get codes through them! 👍🏻

    I like it but like above and am worried I may be penalised just by putting in codes I have seen in comments I do like the virgin red app

    Hi guys, I have been with virgin red since before Necker Island competition. I loved both that and keys to the kasbah. Rock your world has a very different feel to it and I am itching to hunt for more clues to gain more points but am stopping myself because of the weekly draw. Not sure if I like this or if indeed I will have sufficient points at the end to have opened all of the vaults!

    if I am honest, I think the code hunt got us to see far more of the virgin websites and know more about the company than Rock Your World is doing. Just my opinion and won't put me off participating but just giving a little ( hopefully ) constructive criticism. Keep up the good work guys

    I don't think guessing will lead to disqualification, sharing will. If you guess 3 of one weeks answers and enter them before that week then you won't achieve the 5 code minimum for the extra draw that week. That's my interpretation but I'm sure VRed will put us right if I'm way off the mark. Gonna save my guessing till the end.

    Same as previous comments, don't want to search for clues in case I enter in the wrong week and get disqualified. Some more clarification here would be great please.

    Love the big reverse auction.. More of the same in the future please... Love that the proceeds go to charity too.

    Amazed at how many people don't know some of the older acts!!! I must be getting on a bit!

    What about a bit more of a cryptic challenge to get the clue?

    How about a flash Friday win tickets to a big gig... At o2 / Wembley or elsewhere in the country? Or next year's V festival??? 

    Get a rock your world themed week on the X factor!

    I'm really enjoying Rock your World as it's a good incentive to use the app daily and follow Virgin companies on SM (which I do anyway) but it's a more relaxed pace. V Marks the Spot and Keys to the Kasbah were great but really all-consuming, I was constantly hunting and it was genuinely on my mind enough to damage my concentration at work. Sad, I know, but I doubt I'm the only one.

    With this I know I've missed an email one and that's bugging me (I'm a customer but unsubscribed months ago from emails and can't get them sending again) but I know it'll be hard to miss most codes if I keep an eye out and the 5/7 rule means I'm not hunting or guessing constantly. That said I might go on a guessing spree at the end of I'm not in the VIP vault and forfeit my 5/7 entry for the last week.

    Surely if people are guessing codes ( rock bands or artists) when it comes to that particular clue they will get the message whoops looks like you've used that before, so therefore they aren't getting an advantage but purely building up to their points total, if however that day's code had a link or specific prize they wouldn't be doing themselves any favours. I think it a little harsh if people do get disqualified unless of course they are sharing with other users. I think this months challenge is open to people guessing answers instead of having to search or work out clues, I find that more fun, maybe it could be adapted to maybe the artists birth date or number of band members, possibly their first single or album name to stop guessing.

    i would also quite like to see a list of winners published if possible

    I like to guess and hunt so I'm finding this quite frustrating....

    I am enjoying the challenge and certainly it helps when there's a shortage of time. I haven't had codes from Virgin Trains EC and I would like to be verified with Virgin Pure.

    Have Virgin Money accounts but not credit card so no Verification.

    Bit of a pain having to login in here as I keep forgetting existence

    Be great if you could tell us max codes available per day.

    @Carol Mackay

    Sorry we don't have verification for Virgin Money yet - hopefully we'll get it one day :)  

    We've had a chat and what we might do is share how many public booster codes are released each day (when we know about them coming anyway). Max codes available might be trickier because some codes are in Virgin company emails so only their customers would find out about them.

    When you say full list of winners published, do you mean for the four main Rock Your World prizes in the Vault? This should be doable (providing the winners are okay with it). We won't be able to publish every single winner from across the whole month, but the big ones we'll definitely do :)

    We get to hear about the big winner of the previous month sometimes but don't know when you do the draw for the other vaults... Could you make it on a specific / special day and announce on twitter?

    Fantastic if you could share how many public booster codes released daily. Understand re max codes though.

    Knew the answer immediately to today's tile clue but had to Google what a 'bot' is.  Says it all really!

    @Clive Wanstall  

    Good suggestion!

    One of the reasons for us not having a winner announcement date each month is that when we pick a winner there's a number of admin-heavy things we also need to do behind the scenes. This means we do the picking on a day when we've got all the right people here in the office and when we're not all rushed off into meetings. It'll also depend on the number of winners - so a prize draw with just one winner is quite easy to manage, but one with 2000 is a much bigger deal (especially if we're the ones doing all the postage and packing - eek!).  

    That being said, we do want to try to talk about winners more where possible, especially the Vault winners. I'll see if there's a way I can be more involved in the winner picking process so I can shout about it on Twitter when it happens at least :)

    When I said list of winners it's partially to help promote the app, the more great prizes and the more people see that it's not just one or two big winners a month hopefully more & more people will join ( maybe that's a bad suggestion as I don't win now ) 😂

    This is my first month with the app and I'm loving it - my only comment would be the codes are too easy for people to guess, publish and gain and advantage. I'd rather find them myself and play the game... I didn't have the app when the 'keys' month was active, but the codes for that one look much better- at least they're random!

    Random yes but limited in scope. It's harder to theme randomness.

    Believe Red expanded it to longer 'codes'so they can introduce more quiz/trivia elements into the finding of codes rather than just here's a clue to it's location.  I suspect we'll end up with a mix of both random generated and 'answer' codes in future months as they continue to fine tune it.

    Just looked on twitter experience days but the code showing on my phone is the one that was there yesterday. It actually said put there 22 hrs ago! Is there another one that doesn't start with B?

    Ann. The VXdays twitter one is today's (20th) daily challenge. Don't worry, you've just caught it early.
