As well as browsing the articles (and the fascinating forums) I also enter the competitions. I may even have won one in the past. Do any of you enter regularly?
But a thought has struck me... the presentation packs on offer are from a few months back. So presumably those who collect modern GB will have either ordered or bought it anyway. Does that mean fewer entries or would you enter anyway and have a duplicate (or extra postage?)
And why is it 2 to 3 months after issue? Other magazines/websites (dare I mention AllABoutStamps) offer the current issue straightaway.

I do occasionally enter the competitions, though less so these days as before.
I have won quite a few presentation packs over the years and also a nice hobbyist LED 'daylight' lamp.
I don't collect modern British and as I am never really aware (unless I actually look it up) what the current commemorate sets are it never bothered me whether the packs were current or not. All the packs reside in a box, along with other bits and pieces, taking up space. I have really stopped doing competitions where packs are the prize as, frankly, I never look at them.
I just enter those competitions now where the prize is of interest to me.

Sorry kids, I'm in Canada, I can't.
Of course, in this day and age, I could just identify as being "in the UK"?
