Duplicates content

We love content and content makes all the difference.

If there is something that exit connect and share your thought on the post instead of creating a new entry.

Posts

We know you want to keep up with the current trend and event, that’s what we love but please avoid uploading of duplicated media unless there is a clear modification or improvement in quality of the posts or media.

Relevant post

Who don’t love relevant content? Of course we all do. When posting a new content or commenting on a post, make sure in a addition or contribution you make to the site is relevant to the topic at hand. But hey, sometimes you love a post but you don’t have to comment on it, great just skip it to the next post. Don’t leave comments that are not in the topic or post.
