I have had several requests for this after posting a Reply Rewards with a lottery element. I have dumbed it down a bit so that it's very simple.

If you start a new thread have this open in a second tab next door and follow it step by step.

To do this you open a new thread on Daily Chatter and type whatever you wish to say. Before you click the blue 'Thread' button to confirm, look just above that button & you will see 5 buttons the third of which is   'Reply awards'  . Click on that to open.

You have 4 fields to fill in.

Field 1 - Once Reply Award... Diamonds - Put in the amount of diamonds you wish each winner to receive eg. 5 diamonds

Field 2 - Reward .....time - Put in how many members can win,that's not very clear when you read it but it means how many times can a reward be given

Field 3 - Up to a maximum per person - straightforward, I always use 1 time otherwise less polite members will keep replying to get more

Field 4 - This is the 'lottery' element. 100% means every reply up to the maximum you have stated in Field 2 will win. Anything less means some people won't. I set it at 30% which means about 1 in 3 will win. If you want to try 10%  !! only 1 in 10 would win, very mean !!!!

Just below this  appears a summary of what you have done which included how many diamonds you have and the tax you will pay. This makes sure you can't accidentally spend more than you have and makes it clear if you have gone wrong and are giving away 10,000 diamonds by mistake. This summary is in paler text so look carefully !

That's it !

Within that thread there is information and a screen dump - thanks to Lilylily for that

Have a go !

If you got this far I can reveal that there is a Reply Awards for this thread and, guess what, its a lottery again , only this time I made it a 1 in 5 chance - how mean can a person get ! LOL

Thank you for the information, I did not know you could do this kind of lottery Truly Diy. It's boring. To put some random rewards is fun. And this obllige some to say thank you before you leave. For many here use as thieves!
I wish you a good evening, I personally am going to cut for today, it's getting late for me because it's 0:36, and I work tomorrow.
