Tagging posts for easy find: #tags now in use

[Please see this post:
https://www.lottos.com.au/competitions/viewthread.php?tid=41...
for the new format - A]


Just an update for those who are not familiar with the process:

triptrip is used for an overseas trip
holidayholiday is used for a trip within Australia

carcar is used for a comp where a car is the prize

These are invaluable when doing a search.

Fellow lottoers, can you add more?

Is it possible to add this information to the 'Competition Posting Guidelines'? Thank you.

prizesprizes - when there's lots of prizes up for grabs, like 50 or more

We don't use very often but it's great for newbies or when you're having a drought. The more prizes in a comp, the better chance of winning one.

TAGGING posts with double keywords for search

Tagging posts with double keywords

Somewhere there is a thread I can't find. Admin please delete if this is irrelevant,

For new members (and a reminder to others)

To make searching easy, when you post, please put the double keywords at the bottom of your post for commonly search categories. I think the ones we agreed on are

carcar may include trucks and motorbikes
triptrip -typically used for oversears trips
cruisecruise
cashcash -includes giftcards etc
holidayholiday for holidays in OZ
adventadvent
prizesprizes for comps with lots of little prizes


I am happy to search
techtech if anyone wants to include all phones, tvs, etc
babybaby for gear for babies
kitchenkitchen for all things kitchen, including Thermomix an kitchenaid
homehome for all other home e.g. air con, heaters, flooring, reno
or even
winnerwinner when you add a winner to the bottom of an old post

I am not sure I am allowed to suggest those last four. Andrew will delete if not.

Remember these only work if the poster, or someone, tags them.

I have gone through and tagged some and smiley is good at tagging. thanks

I often see requests for people going overseas is there any travel insurance comps going at the moment because searching the word insurance returns ridiculous amounts of result.

Suggest insuranceinsurance

Thanks Dink. Folks we can find this now by using the searchword 'tagging'. Easy peasy.

Brainwave: perhaps Andrew could add a window in the posting page for tag keywords.

In deference to those addicts amongst us I was very tempted to go through and mark relevant comps CHOCOLATECHOCOLATE !!!:) Then the kids woke up so I made porridge instead. Would be fun though

But your not winning the insurance!

You might win a holiday with that comp, so you'd tag holidayholiday.

For us creative cooks COOKCOOK would be great :)

Yes, I've often wondered if it would be helpful to have a list of tags for some entry types as well as prize types.

Since this is a guide only - we still have to do some work after all - perhaps we could have things like:

tagtag; shareshare; for fb comps
cookcook (thank you Blossom52, though I don't enter myself!), photophoto for creatives etc.

I don't think this would disturb the prizes search in any way, and of course, this is a self-help programme for compers and is NOT to be expected of the Posters or Mods, who have quite enough to do (and for which we are all very grateful) :thumbup:

No offense, if nobody fancies. I'll carry on putting them in my personal notes. Just as easy. :thumbup:

how about cardcard for gift cards and prepaid credit cards prizes

I believe it's time to revisit this tagging thing.

First up, it's not compulsory to tag comps and any comps missing tags are not to be reported as missing info.

Members who post the initial comp can add a tag if they wish, or add a # character to the start of the relevant word if it exists in the text from the comp, eg:
add # to cruise to become
#cruise
or members who choose to, can add a subsequent post with the relevant tag.

To save time typing up tags, I have compiled this list from previous posts and anyone wanting to add a tag is encouraged to use this format instead of the old double word format [eg: no longer carcar, use #car instead]



#advent - Christmas

#baby - gear for babies

#beauty - make up, shampoo etc.

#car - cars, may include trucks and motorbikes

#cash - for cash

#cruise - for cruise

#easter - easter comps

#giftcard - gift cards, vouchers and prepaid credit/debit cards

#holiday - holidays in Australia

#home - other home e.g. air con, heaters, flooring, reno

#insurance - travel insurance

#jewellery - all types of jewellery

#kitchen - all things kitchen, including Thermomix and kitchenaid

#movies - movie passes

#prizes - comps with many prizes [more than 100]

#tech - laptop/computer, phones, tvs, etc

#tip - footy tipping

#trip - trips overseas

#whitegoods - whitegoods

#winner - add a winner to the bottom of an old post


#tag - social media
#share - social media
