Duplicate transcribing

  • Jan_Greenslade by Jan_Greenslade

    I am working on 2 Division, 5th Battalion Cameronians [Scottish Rifles] and notice there is repeat hashtagging for a number of pages I am tagging. The most recent is Image AWD00014b9 by reference ourviv. Are we duplicating the pages?

    Every page is tagged by at least 5 people to come up with a "best fit" set of tags based on what several people think. That's how a crowd sourcing project like this is supposed to work. A page is not "complete" until 5 people have tagged it. However, the way hashtags work, there's no point in hashtagging the same thing someone has already hashtagged on the page.

    Heather's explained that far more coherently than I would have done! The essential point is that we are duplicating the pages, as it's the best way to get the resultant data as accurate as possible.
