Thats the problem Ben no form shown- no matter where you click... I already get patch at 2 email addresses. I was trying to enter my husbands email since he's alwaus reading Patch on my phone but no where to sign up as a contestant for the taste?
freddie July 20, 2012 at 07:23 PM
vokist..the form appears on the top of this page before the story for me. ANd I have used IE, Chrome and Firefox and it appears in all 3 browsers. It also shows up on my Kindle Fire so maybe you have some setting set on your browser that do not allow it to be entered
Ben Feldheim July 20, 2012 at 08:47 PM
For most folks who couldn't see the form, logging out of Patch, closing your browser and starting back over tends to do the trick.

Ben Feldheim July 24, 2012 at 04:28 PM
