Many of the admins delete numerous duplicate images every single day. But of what I've noticed, these images are usually uploaded by users and mostly, new users, who don't realise that what they're uploading already exists. Also, many images get unused, sometimes because the users find the existing image and use that instead and just leave the one they uploaded. So, perhaps we should develop a way to make existing images more obvious? I myself have thought of a couple of ways, but they're not so effective. I could use a few more ideas from the community and try to solve or at least calm the problem down a bit. Not that it's always much of a problem, but a solution to it would decrease admin work, therfore allowing admins to have more time to help users in need, which will then make Halopedia's economy better, since we'll have more users knowing what they're doing.

So does anyone have any ideas?
