Q. How can I maximise our tournament’s exposure on UR7s.com?
A. The more proactive you are with your tournament profile and throughout UR7s.com, the more exposure you will receive. Every time you upload videos, photos and notices, every time you post a blog or enter discussion in the forum, you will appear elsewhere on UR7s.com. Tournament blogs will automatically appear on the homepage, the best videos will be featured and the more proactive you are across the site, the better your chance of being a Featured Tournament.
Furthermore, the more teams that have connected with your tournament profile as a “Competing Team” and the more media they upload with your tournament tagged, the more exposure your tournament will receive through those teams’ activity. So as well as regularly blogging and adding videos yourself, encourage participating teams and players to blog and upload media about you – and to make sure they tag your tournament.
Q. How can we be a “featured tournament” on the homepage?
A. Featured tournaments on the site are chosen on a number of criteria and what they offer the UR7s community at any one time. We will usually ensure that there is a diverse mix in terms of geography and levels of competition. We will also judge tournaments on their interaction on UR7s.com (see above), the quality of their profile and the proximity to the event. Most importantly, we will do our best to make sure the tournaments featured offering interesting content to users of the site.
Q. How can I show what teams are competing in the tournament?
Q. Who can I message on behalf of my tournament?
A. You can message anyone that you are friends with on the site, so the more you interact and the more teams and members you become friends with, the more people you can send your tournament communications to.
Photos and Videos
Q. How do I upload photos and videos to a profile?
A. You need to have a tournament profile to upload photos or videos to any profile for which you have administration rights, whether you are a member, team or tournament.
Q. What are tags?
A. Tags are a quick and easy way to tell others what is on your pictures. By tagging your media it allows others to find your photos by searching for keywords. Furthermore, if you tag a member, team or tournament in a photo or video, that photo/video will show up on that member’s, team’s or tournament’s profile.
Q. How should I organise my photos/videos?
A. Organising Photos and Videos is up to you, but we recommend creating separate albums for photos and videos and organise by year and event.
