    You don't move them to expired. When they expire they automatically move to your My Expired Sweepstakes.

    If you go into one of your My Sweepstakes Categories, example Daily My Sweepstakes:
    http://www.sweepsadvantage.com/brows...&only_fav=True

    If you have expired sweepstakes you will have an alert near the top of the page. Click the Alert link to access those Expired Daily Sweepstakes.

    : Expired My Sweepstakes - Question & Answer

    I wouldn't keep any expired sweepstakes around that are over 6 months since they expired. Don't worry about the space. These listings are small and don't account for much disk space. Good Question, Thank You.

    : Expired My Sweepstakes - Question & Answer

    Could there be a "remove all" button added to the expired sweepstakes area? When I'm entering lots of contests I like to know how many are active at a glance without having to go to each type of contests and one-by-one remove all of my expired sweeps.

    Yes please! I'd like to delete all of my expired sweeps but I'd rather spend that time entering sweeps! :laughing:
    A remove all would be great, thanks! :cheers:

    This "remove all" expired feature has been added. Just navigate into a My Sweepstakes category that has expired listings and click the "Remove All" button near the top of the page. Then just leave the page and let the auto save pop up window save all the changes or click the Save My Sweepstakes button.

    Thanks for adding the feature, unfortunately it doesn't seem to work for me on either IE7 or Firefox.

    Any suggestions?

    Re: Expired My Sweepstakes - Question & Answer

    One more note about this option. It will only remove all the expired sweepstakes on the page, one page at a time. One of our members had several thousand expired my sweepstakes. In this case you would have to keep removing a page at a time. The idea with expired my sweepstakes is to try and clean up your list from time to time so that we don't have tons of unneeded expired my sweepstakes in the database. This in the long run if it is not cleaned up will cost SA more to maintain. We appreciate the effort.
