    Please keep the spirit of Search is your Friend in mind even when adding to our media directory, it does not prevent you from adding a duplicate so you've gotta search first. Please and thank you.

    So we or some of us are putting duplicates?? I am using the search and i usually use half or all the title of the video and the titles only option.. Does it mean it wont show it exists even if it does??

    If I can find it to delete a duplicate, search obviously works. If you're searching really long strings, you're probably including things that break the search.
    Take the search Mayonnaise was doing. Now replace the whole long thing with "keeping an eye on", I was even lazy and didn't specifically search media. Search Results for Query: keeping an eye on | MMORPG and Online Game Forums
    It says an, eye, and on are all too short so they weren't included in the search, but I still get all the relevant results.
    I think, in Mayonnaise's case, search was trying to follow "common internet search rules" or something of the like, and tried to exclude everything after the hyphen.

    I'll also include the most relevant part of Search is Your Friend:
    That does get a bit harder when every video maker ever makes one with the exact same short title, but that's what the video thumbnails and descriptions are for. If you're trying to post a video from a specific well-known videomaker like goldraven, you can also search in media without using "titles only" for the common stuff they put in all of their descriptions, like just searching "goldravenaq3d".

    Search is usually ordered by date of creation, with videos especially you should definitely not stop at page 1 unless you've gone further back in time than when the video was uploaded.

    To make it more simple, you can specify which forum/category you want to search in. That way, even if you use simple/ 1, 2 or 3 word/s only, you wont have a hard time finding too many out of the topic videos. For example if you are trying to upload a viddy regarding AQ3D
    Then make your search and select "AQ3D" from the categories for the results to be minimized.

    Okay, thanks for the tips! Going to link most recent videos only so it will be easier for me tho no videos of mine have been removed so I guess I don't have any duplicates. :D

    c: the mods are hard working tbh. And we casually give them headaches with duppies. XD
    so avoiding it as much as possible will be appreciated by them~
