Reddit giveaway settings & filters

You can change the following settings to add entries or filter users or comments of your raffle.

Filter duplicate users

If you enable this filter, we filter multiple comments made by a single user and only count one entry for this user. We are using the unique author name to filter duplicate comments.

Minimum ups

Enter the minimum ups (upvote) that a comment should have. We filter all comments that don't have at least this number of ups. If there is no number entered, we don't use this filter.

Note: the number of ups that the Reddit API returns can differ from the number you will see on Reddit.

Filter comments based on a specific text

If you enable this filter, an extra text field will appear where you can enter a text, hashtag or answer. A comment should have this text included, before it is a valid entry in the raffle.

Add extra entries

If you enable the option Add extra entries, you will see a textarea where you can add names of Reddit users which you want to give extra changes of winning. These extra entries are not connected to the commenters and will be added to the total number of comments.

Exclude users

If you enable the option "Exclude users", you will see a textarea where you can add usernames of the users you want to exclude from the contest. This option can be useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again. You should enter the exact Reddit username, e.g. AutoModerator.
