I have the guide for you.
Let’s say you stumble upon a random gifset in the Rooster Teeth tag, but you’re worried that the person who posted it didn’t make the gifs. How do you tell if they’re reposted, you ask? Here’s some things to look for
- Is there a watermark? It could be black, white, hidden, not so hidden, a long url, a short url, etc. They can usually be found in the corners of gifs, or in blank places where you can read them clearly. AlwaysalwaysALWAYS check if the watermark matches the poster’s URL.
- Do the gifs match? Gifmakers are an obsessive compulsive bunch. We like all of our gifs in photosets to have the same theme. Same person/couple, same video, same place, etc. We’re not going to throw together a bunch of gifs and just upload them for no reason.
- Is the coloring the same? This one might be a little hard to tell if you’re not a gifmaker yourself, but with a little practice, you can tell if the gifs in the set all look the same. Why does this matter, you ask? Well, gifmakers usually color gifs in a photoset the same way.
- What do the tags say? Every gifmaker will have at least one personal tag on their gifsets to mark their gifs as theirs. Some use a simple “mine” or “my gifs”, others have a complicated system of tags, based on who’s in them, what video, or if it’s a series of gifs. Reposters are those type who tag with every single thing they can think of, even if it’s not actually relevant to the set. [NOTE: if you see a tag that says “not my gifs”, you still shouldn’t reblog them.]
- Are they all the same size? If I make gifs 500px wide, all of the gifs in that set will be 500px wide. I’m not going to mix and match sizes; that just doesn’t look right.
- Check the number of notes. An original, never before seen gifset that was posted a month ago will have say, 400 notes, while a repost from two days ago will have maybe 100. Granted, sometimes reposts can have MORE notes than the original, so that’s why you should check for the other factors.
- Has the reposter reposted before? People who repost often do it serially, it’s not just a one time thing. If you’ve heard that so and so has reposted before, odds are the set on your dash from them today is ALSO a repost.
Basically, if you’re in doubt about whether or not a gif is a repost, IT PROBABLY IS.
Please, respect your gifmakers and don’t repost their gifs; we work hard to make these, it’s the least you can do to give us proper credit.
