Help Cut Back on Reposts

Lately there have been a lot of reposts on this board. By all means, this board is full of hundreds of thousands of images, and reposts are inevitable. However, there are little things we can all do to help cut back on the vast amounts of reposts that not only disrupt the archival flow of a thread but also (and more importantly) take up bandwidth and cost us more money.

1. Try checking the last 5 pages before posting images. Reposts that occur on the same page (yes this has happened) or even within a couple of pages of each other are frustrating and unnecessary. Checking at least five pages back before posting can help in this respect immensely.

2. The search function is your friend, and topic searches now work since maddog107 updated the board. Perform a search within the thread if you know the name of the event, magazine, editorial, or shoot your image is coming from. Sometimes people fail to provide information when they post pics and the images won't come up as a result. But at least search first to see what comes up.

3. Related to number 2, when posting images, whenever possible, list as much information about the image(s) as you can including sources. This will help others in the future when they use the search function.

4. If you know a set of images has been posted before, please do not post them again.

If you have any questions, please contact me or another staff member.

Together we can cut down on reposts. Thanks everyone for your cooperation.
