Wacktrap FAQs - Step 1: Adding your wacks

It’s your life, your experiences. So your wack will be as detailed as you deem worthy. As long or short as you like. Some days you may feel like writing a novel. Others, a novella. When it's more of a paragraph kinda day, just be sure to give us at least 10 words. The details are up to you.
We’ll share a couple of quick secrets, to get that wack of yours visible: seen. First, use keywords and avoid abbreviations in your title or body text. Keywords might sound scary, but they're simply those most important words you’re using every day. Make sure to use complete words, not the cut version. While texting shorthand is great for sendin' quick messages via mobile, keep in mind that our Search function doesn’t speak ‘texting.’ While you might be LMAO over what your friend is sending you, submit that in your wack text and you'll be making our Search function cry.
If you’re not familiar with Keywords, you’ll want to get intimate quickly. They’ll make your wack and wack Title great, and findable. Use ‘em right, and use ‘em consistently, and we know you’ll be rackin’ up those wacktastic ‘5-mallet’ratings in a flash. Spill those details. Tell all.
You'll wanna add a pic, video, url web address or document whenever possible. Sometimes nothing says OMG like an indescribable image: yes, you do want that visual. Remember, any attachment increases curb appeal and your Wack Stats.
Timing is everything, especially with wacks. Submit that wack as soon as possible while those details are fresh in mind. Remember, your wack’s being Rated by members who are itchin' to send it to the Wacktrap home page wall-o’-fame.

A Category is that 'just-right' spot where your wack's hanging out, ready to be accessed quickly and easily. Categories function like bookstore sections, organized by topic. Wacks of similar topics are grouped together, waiting to be 'browsed.' Getting that wack in the right Category is essential. If your wack gets miscategorized, it remains accessible by keyword Search only, not for related 'browsing.'
The Category your're choosing is where your wack’ll be highlighted-where it will be available, and seen, even without use of Keywords. Put that wack in the right place and you're doubling its visibility: on the shelf, and through member Search. And with that kind of visibility, it's  bound for front page limelight.
When you add that wack, the first thing you'll be choosing is your Category from dropdown menu at page top. Dropdown menus will continue to slide open 'til you've chosen the most descriptive, the one that fits your wack.
Make sure your wack's in the right place, the first time. Once submitted, Category remains fixed and location can't be changed. If we haven’t created a Category that fits your wack just right, we’ll make it right: Contact Wacktrap now to get the wack Category you need.
