Q. How do I flag on the Revs Digital Library?
The Revs Digital Library uses the Disqus platform for flagging. To contribute flags, you must create an account. This will allow our users to keep track of their flags, as well as protect the RDL from spam and Internet bots. On the individual image page, you can create an account. The easiest method to do so is by creating an account on the Disqus platform. You can also create an account by linking it through your already existing Facebook, Twitter, or Google account. If you already have a Disqus account, simply log in on the RDL’s individual image page.
Once you are logged in, enter the information you would like to contribute in the text box, and hit post. You can also up-vote, or agree with another user’s post, and down-vote, or disagree with another user’s post. Multiple users can comment on a single image, so before adding another flag with similar or identical information, we ask that you check the flagging section on the individual image to see if someone has already flagged what you want to. If they have, please up-vote their flag, showing that you agree with it. This allows RDL users to build a community that can help verify the crowdsourced information. Also, please be cognizant that all information added in the flag will be fully searchable from the RDL universal keyword search box, so we ask that users only contribute identifying information about the images.
