Original Creation (OC) has been a topic of discussion amongst the admins for a couple of months now. It's something that we have an interest in and have been listening to what's been said and trying to plan what works best. We are currently finalizing some plans on a much better way to handle the situation going forward. During this time, we've decided to hide the OC options when uploading and displaying on the site, alongside the OC filter. At the current time, all previously uploaded OC posters will act as any other poster on the site. The new planned system will retrofit any previously uploaded posters with the new system. Please bear with us as we define and implement a better solution to help mitigate past, current, and future issues that may arise regarding OC. Thank you for your patience as we work to implement a better solution
