I’m pretty sure everyone knows that reposts happen on KYM, as the repost detection system doesn’t work all the time. Generally, Mods have said that the principal of priority is to be employed when deciding which one to get rid of (the first one posted remains, others are gotten rid of). However, there are a few other issues I wanted to ask about.
Functional Reposts: This is when an image is technically different due to some reason (image dimensions, text font is different, other minor differences), but the function of the image is exactly the same.
Are this to be flagged as reposts?
This only goes when the image functionally exactly same, though.
Priority Versus Quality: Issue when there is a repost, but the first version is of noticeably lower quality, what should be done?
Reporting question about reposts in general: What I’ve been doing for reposts is tagging them with reposted content as well as linking to the original in the notes section of the reposted image. I did this because I felt it would less messy than posting all the original images and reposts in the image cleaning thread. However, seeing as those images haven’t been dealt with after being posted more than a month ago. I’m assuming that it’s better to just post them in a more traditional manner of posting links to the original and the repost?
