Is there a way to...

Hey Compers!

I haven't been keeping track of my wins (so silly, I know!) and am wanting to look back over the years I've been on here at my wins but when I go into User Control Panel it only shows me this years wins.

Another way I was thinking was searching for comments written by me, but I can't find a way to do that either.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks guys
Kate

think it's 2 years maximum for any searches. If you put your username into the 2nd space on the search page it should show you 2 years worth of comments?

Hi Kate

Last year your membership lapsed so the wins only show for the last 12 months (technically from 2nd Sep 2022 when you rejoined).

Andrew, is there a way to search further back than 2 years?

Aside from marking them as 'won' on Lottos, I print off any wems, and keep any letter/info relating to the comp, if any, that arrives with a prize, and write any further details if needed on that. I have been known to go back and take a shelf talker of an expired comp if I have no other info to 'save' as a keepsake for the folder collection. Staff never say no. The A4 plastic pocket folders, which are always around $2 with back to school stuff every January are great because they have a spine that you can stick a label maker 'year' on them for easy reference. Great to look back through each year. Used to fill 1 or 2 folder per year, now lucky to fill one! Another thing I do is to create a folder in my emails called 'wins'. Great reference if you ever need to chase up a prize or reread info. They don't expire!

I keep a yearly spreadsheet. Just in Google Docs. If you'd like to have a go here are my column headings
Month
Entry method
PROMOTER
Competition question
Type (of comp)
Prize
responded
$ value
rec'd




Prize wins 2014: $37680
Prize wins 2011: $13000
previous years about $25000

The harder you work the luckier you get

I hit the WON button for all comps when prizes are received, have done this since joining ten years ago. So easy to go through.
I also have kept winning emails, any and all details of wins in A4 folders since I started comping 26 years ago.
I have many folders, all in perfect date and year order. Comping is my hobby, is productive and enables me to help out my large family.
