One of the big things from the previous platform was eager participation from others who weren't with Contributor or Admin level. The new site was made to allow everyone to contribute. On the back end for Contributors and Admin they have access to a list of every deck being added by who and when. It's essentially a queue list. It worked really well for a while so much so that I thought the site was able to run itself. I took the training wheels off a bit too early. Right now an added deck is IMMEDIATE but the list is still created meaning if it is spam it will show up on the list and on that list we can see any spam/duplicates and delete them.

Unfortunately it either looks like it's not working or myself as an admin am accidentally allowing decks to go through that are duplicates. In terms of immediate action I'll be adding a "duplicate" flag button. But in terms of the larger question,
"Do we want new decks to only be added by Contributors or by Everybody?"

Let me know. The solution could literally be to go back to just Contributor-level access to upload decks. But realistically speaking I'm thinking that our current system works and we just need more hands on deck that could monitor duplicates. So with that being said, if you're interested please let me know! E-mail alex@seasonsplayingcards.com and I'll try to teach any volunteers the ropes of the backend. Also eventually you'll probably get super duper profiles and free decks from me lol.

Again thank you for understanding this growing process.

Based on what I've seen I think the permission should be scaled back to admins and contributors. It's great that a lot of people want to contribute but the fact that some people are not uploading quality image and doing the simple duplicate check or following the guidelines is concerning. I think if someone has showed a good track history then you and Nate can then promote the person to contributor status. Since only you and Nate have the permission to delete (maybe couple other) it's hard to ask them to check the site everyday to maintain that.

"Do we want new decks to only be added by Contributors or by Everybody?"

I think the answers is we want everyone to be a contributor, but not everyone can. I'm sure there are a lot of users that aren't UC members and don't check this board, for those people they wouldn't know the guidelines we follow to begin with. To be honest, there are too many people on the internet and a lot of them just don't care and you definitely can't trust "Everybody". I started out putting new decks I'd like added on the UC board and eventually Nate gave me contributor access based on my history just like the other contributors. I really think that should still be the model going forward. The people that really want to contribute can ask/find help on UC and eventually become a contributor.

Just my 2 cents...

All duplicates now cleaned up, with the exception of the Cherry and DMC since that needs more review before I can clean up.

I appreciate whomever updated decks with DUPLICATE title, that makes it easier for me and also helps users with them in their collection to properly remove it and add the right one. That is a good process - determine the one that is in the fewest collections, rename the title as duplicate, add a comment and perhaps most important remove the tuck images or even replace with this image to notify users. Ideally we would have a merge function or easy way to point users to the right deck, but for now this is good. I also updated the original posting with these details and will add to FAQ.

Duplicate decks that may still require cleanup

EDIT - I guess I was confused because v1 is apparently green and then v2 is black, but some seem to call v1 blue and also v2 blue??? Plus there is that limited deck (http://www.portfolio52.com/deck/3253/view) so I wasn't sure how many different variants or even a v3. I would agree that the deck name is 'Cherry Casino' and we can use (aka alt names) in title or description to help with searches.

OK, all duplicates have either been removed or properly marked with image, other than the Cherry ones. I think it's now clear there are 2 versions, plus a special edition, but I'm out of time for tonight.

I think the broken search is really causing problems with duplicates though, so hopefully that can be fixed. For example, one of the duplicates was for Archangels deck, but a search for Arch or Angels or even Arch Angels won't find it.
