I propose that a book or magazine scan should tell, in the filename, whether it's "cover to cover" or if the ads have been excluded. Just one example I found in the newsgroup:
Computer Shopper - Issue 341 Volume 28 Number 08 (2008-08)(SX Media Labs)(US).zip
The last numbered page in this pdf is 102, but there are only 65 pages scanned. Also, that last page has an arrow that apparently points across to page 103, which is not included. Did the scanner make a call that the next page, although not an ad, just wasn't important enough to include? Or is the arrow just a reference to the URL printed within it? How can we tell?
I suggest TOSEC adopt the naming convention that we have used in the comic book scanning world for ten years: (c2c) or (noads). I, for one, am a completist, and I would only be interested in c2c scans. How cool would all those old issues of Run and Ahoy! be without the ads? Might not today's ads be worth reviewing ten years from now? Is TOSEC not a *completion* project?
I'm not saying TOSEC should only accept c2c scans, just that whether a scan is c2c or has no ads should be clearly identified in the namimg convention.
