Over the past few weeks, we've been getting a lot of people reposting previously submitted Bertstrips.
This has been occurring despite the fact that the sidebar (Rule 3) AND the submission rules (the thing you see before you submit a Bertstrip) state that reposts are not allowed.
In the past, we have unbanned users who have admitted that they weren't aware of the rule. However, we think that the rules regarding reposts have been made explicit. Don't fucking do it.
Users who submit reposts from this point on will not have their ban status reconsidered. Once you're banned for reposting, you're banned forever.
As a general rule of thumb, do not post a Bertstrip that you haven't made yourself. There is a very high probability that someone has already submitted it here, thus making it a repost.
You can search if something has been reposted using karmadecay. Note that karmadecay and other reverse-image search sites aren't always 100% accurate. If you would still like to verify if something is a repost, feel free to send us a modmail.
If you happen to see a repost while browsing through /r/Bertstrips, please report it, so that a mod can see it and deal with it accordingly.
TL:DR: Don't repost.
With that, I shall retire to the basement. Bort's cheeks need some clapping, and I'm not talking hands.
