Why can't we have repetitive words in image title?


I remember, million years ago, that iStock used title words as keywords. That's not the case anymore. So, what's the problem?

It would be a useful thing to allow for scientific names such as Vulpes vulpes, Meles meles and Gorilla gorilla gorilla. But by disallowing repeated words, I suppose the logic is that no one will be tempted to come up with titles such as Sex sex sex sex.

Try and give Bora Bora a meaningful title. Not that I've been there.

Since titles are not used by the ironically named best match,  simply put a hyphen between the offending duplicate words.

Please do not encourage them to correct such a minor imperfections. I am just afraid that the result of such repairs would be for example, a complete lack of titles or no preview at all ...

So... when it (more or less) works, then DO NOT TOUCH IT.

You might as well ask why the description gets cut off if you use any special characters and upload via DeepMeta (it is an API error, not DeepMetas fault...). This is a simple character encoding bug that has been on for years now and still no solution. So if you ask when this or anything else gets changed the answer probably is: never.
