WHAT IS THE CAPTION vs. THE TITLE?
The TITLE should be the drink or location name. If you are publishing someone else’s material, the CAPTION should be the author or site’s name. If you are uploading your own picture of a cocktail or review, you may include your name, the recipe or a short description in the caption.
CAN I SELECT MORE THAN ONE CATEGORY?
The short answer is YES.
WHAT ARE THE CATEGORIES & WHAT SHOULD I POST IN THEM?
The Categories are:
WHAT I DRINK: This should be exclusively pictures of drinks with recipes; submissions will be most stringently moderated in this category to ensure attribution is given to others work and to allow this “filter” to be a useful tool.
WHERE I DRINK: This should be pictures of drinks at bars and/or restaurants or a picture of the actual establishment with or without a link to their site or a review of the establishment; again, this category will be moderated to preserve it’s usefulness as a resource of where one can find a good cocktail.
WHEN & WHY I DRINK: These categories are intended to be fairly liberal in their interpretation and moderation will be limited to ensuring that the House Rules are not broken…. go ahead and post your pictures.
HE SAID WHAT?: This category is intended as a place to upload funny cartoons, videos, toasts or quotations. Please be sure to include a link if credit needs to be given to a source.
WHAT IS A “TAG”?
TAGS are descriptive words that help others locate your post when searching. For instance if your drink has Vodka, “Vodka” would be an appropriate tag, as would “cocktail” and “recipe.” If you aren’t sure please feel free to leave that section blank and staff at Barfly101 will tag your post when it is approved.
WHAT IF I CAN’T FIGURE OUT HOW TO UPLOAD?
Don’t panic…. shoot us an email at staff@BarFly101.com. We will get you up & running ASAP!
