Passing "human readable" subids via T202?

I’m working closely with an advertiser on a campaign, direct linking the offer with subids like "ad1", "ad2", etc. and collecting feedback from them on which subids are backing out best for them.

The problem: I want to run through Prosper now and split test direct linking vs LPs, different ad copy, etc. but I don’t know how to do that while still passing back the "ad1" type subids that the advertiser can optimize on — they won’t know which ads are performing best if I’m just passing subids like 280343.

The ONLY way I can think to do this would be to set up a different campaign for each ad copy in T202 and put the "human readable" subid in the sub1 field and Prosper subid in the other, like so:[[prosper_subid]]

… but obviously that’s impractical, manageable and pointless because I’d no longer have all my data in one campaign.

Is there some way to pass "human readable" subids back to a network in addition to the Prosper202 number subids?


User Comment:
just use the other parameters that 202 lets you pass, ie "subid1=[[subid]]&subid2=[[c1]]" and set the c1 parameter to whatever you want on the "get links" screen

Oh… this would work. I’ve been using an old tracking domain lately that has v1.3.2 installed and doesn’t have the c1, c2 stuff. I’ll try this with a new tracking domain. Thanks!
