Default Check to see if there is already a thread before starting a new one.

I have noticed this the last few days. People just keep starting new threads when they should just add a post to an already open thread. This has especially been happening in the clubhouse section regarding all of the new scammers going around the clubhouse.

It is beginning to get extremely difficult to follow the different scams because there is like 5 or more open threads regarding each scam.

Please try to check before starting a new thread to see if your issue falls under one of the open scam threads. Keeping threads to a minumum will allow people an easier time tracking these scams. The way it is right now I think it is just making things more confusing especially for me it is.

I originally started a thread about the clubhouse stump scam and since I started that thread there at least 15 or more threads regarding that same issue.

Thanks.

I agree with this. When people keep posting new repeat threads over and over it's unnessicary and it just clogs up WI more and uses up space. Thanks of posting this!

I agree! I've had quite a few threads that people copied. I think before creating a thread,check the bottom of the page and the second page to see if someone else has a thread like that. Great thread!

I agree with this. My thread I created a while ago, titled 'Which dog is cuter?' was copyed right after I made it. Somebody said like 'Which of my dogs are the cutest?'. I mean, do they do it just to annoy people.

I don't think they do it just to annoy people, but I think that they just don't pay enough attention to what is already posted, either that or I think people are just trying to get some big time type of recognition for starting the ultimate thread. They don't want to be a part of someone else's thread because they want to get the credit for it or something like that.

If people would just try to pay a little more attention to threads already started it would be really really nice.

Now that I am thinking, I remembered what I was going to say.

They stole the idea.

I get that a lot, too. I wish people would stop doing it, it disrupts and it really annoys people.

I don't think people are intentionally "copying" any thread. I think they just be excited about their idea, find etc. and don't take the time to check if there is already a thread fairly similar out there already that is open and active.

Thanks for the reminder!

There was a feature like that. When you typed in the thread title, it had a list of the threads similar to the title.
WI needs it now!
Thanks for the reminder, rep for you! ;')

I do agree. I have seen stuff like that all the time. Like the battle of the names and such. It should be stopped
