YouTube Comment Picker options

We have some options for the YouTube Giveaway tool to filter comments from the raffle. This options can be used to include or exclude entries for the contest.

Filter duplicate users

If the option "Filter duplicate users" is enabled, it means that if a user adds 2 comments on your giveaway video, it's only counted as one entry. This way you can make sure that people will not spam your contest with comments to give themselves extra changes. We filter users by a unique user ID that belongs to a YouTube user.

Include replies to comments

Replies are comments which are replied on top level comments. Those comments are done via the Reply button in YouTube. Enabling this option will include those comments as well, by default those comments would not be included.

Filter comments based on a specific text

Let's say you start a raffle where you want people to give the correct answer on a question, or guess the number. This option make sure that only users with a specific text/answer are included in the entries. Could be useful for a YouTube guess & win contest.

Add extra entries

By default only comments are counted as entries for the contest or promotion. We can't get subscribers or people that liked your video with our tool. If you want to give people an extra change if they subscribe or like, you can use the extra entries option to add their names. Those names are not connected to a user from the comments and will not be filtered.

Exclude or block users

You can exclude user by selecting the option "Exclude / block users". You will see a textarea where you can add names of the users you want to exclude from the contest. You can add each name by a newline or separated by comma. This option can also be useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again. You should enter the name of the person that is displayed on their YouTube channel or in the YouTube comment, e.g. Comment Picker.

Remove winner from list after draw

You can enable this filter if you want to exclude the previous winner from winning multiple times. If this option is enabled, we will immediately remove the winner from the list of possible winners after a draw.
