Consolidation, and Post Relevance

Hello everyone. Since Ruthless is out on vacation, and therefore too drunk to do anything, I'd like to take a quick moment to address something that I've received a few complaints about; namely, resharing stuff on the ODeck.

I've done a number of "Please consolidate posts"... posts in the past, but I think it's time for another reminder:

But in addition to this, we (as in we barely sober moderators) have noticed that recently there have been a LOT of reshares and comment reposting, and this has started to clog up the ODeck also.

I realize that there are some of you that can't access Kotaku at work, but to have half of the first page of the ODeck be nothing but Kotaku reshares is not fair to the rest of the members who come here looking for their sci-fi community fix (and cat gifs).

The comment reposting, on the other hand, is a bit trickier. Now that we get a lot of our posts mainpaged (such an amazing thing!), we should cut down on the extra noise lest we cover up the good stuff. I'm not saying insightful and brilliantly wacky comments shouldn't be shared here, but I've seen more than a couple times where people share something that they feel needs to be defended/ripped apart, and we're better than that.
