This journal is about how to use this application to tag your OCT or to search for an OCT:
For OCT ownersQ: How do I tag my OCT?
A: You actually tag your advertisement. Create an ad image and submit it to deviantart. Then, select the event and the time of the event. You can then copy the generated tags and paste them on your ad image tags.Q: I created an OCT. But it is still under construction. What to chose?
A: If you don't know when audition ends or at least when audition starts,
then this tool is not for you. Otherwise, see below.
new: you can choose #NewOCT
or #NewOCLQ: I want to let people know that audition will end on X date.
A: Choose AuditionEnd from event type. Choose the year and the month. Note that day is not supported and you need to put it on the advertisement image to let people know. Q: I want to let people know that OCT is open for audition on X date.
A: Same as above, except that your ad should be about audition start and you should choose event AuditionStart.Q: I've changed the audition date. Should I create a new ad?
A: Please no. Please replace your ad and replace your tags otherwise people might be upset about the results they're getting Q: OCT is cancelled, should I do anything?
A: You know that you should stop advertising it then Q: What should I include in the advertisement image?
A: OCT name, event type and date. Other than that, make it intriguing Q: I'd like to support this tool!
A: The more people know about it, the more results everyone gets from the search. Please go ahead and post it somewhere on your OCT, your favorite, and let people know about it.
For OCT searchQ: I want to find an OCT that will close audition on X month.
A: Select the date you wish and select AuditionEnd. Then hit search.Q: I want to find all OCTs that available this year without specifying the date.
A: Clear out the month field and hit search.Q: I want to search for OCTs closing in the next three months.
A: You need to search three months. Sorry, no shortcut available Q: I am not interested in the X field.
A: You can clear it out and search Q: I can't choose year 2014 or any older year
A: You can still edit the tag manually after you hit search Q: There are some cancelled OCTs. Can you remove them from the search?
A: Sadly, no. Tags are community driven and ads should be maintained by OCT owners.Q: Can I see everything submitted by this application?
A: #OCTEventQ: I hit search. Nothing happened.
A: This happens on Chrome due to a pop-up block. You can enable pop-up for the site, or just copy the search and use it in the DeviantArt search field.Q: There is a troll who tagged his images with this application! Now it is hard to find OCTs!
A: You can add -by:trollName to exclude him.
This haven't happened, yet. And it seems deviantart staff are not listening to the request of blocking them
. Yet, I'm still experimenting with few tricks.
