I saw a whole lot of WOTM threads in the general discussion forum yesterday, which really bothered me a little. It would be great if you could do that, Justin.

Unhappy Re: It seems there are a lot of duplicate posts

I'm so glad someone finally brought this up. It clutters up the forum tremendously. Over the last few days, especially. I think most people don't even scan to see if there's already a topic. They just seem to jump the gun and start their own thread.

EXACTLY. Justin could make the site super searchable but I have my doubts that many would take that step before starting a thread.

Another possibility is that the mods could have the capability of merging similar threads into one thread.

Yup. You haven't needed to even use the search function the last few days to see there were already multiple threads about the exact same thing. All you have to do is eyeball the page before jumping in and making a complete new thread. This also leads to cross posting. I've seen instances where people go to one of the many, many duplicate threads and post a message and then copy it. Then they visit the rest of the threads and paste it. This is clearly to up their post count.

I don't know how similar threads could be merged though. Seems what's been happening is that they're just getting deleted which causes another problem. People who've posted on one and it gets deleted lose their posts through no fault of their own plus any rep points given out within the deleted thread are lost.

Nope, I've been merging 'em as best I can. I know that from 3:00-3:20, yesterday, I merged no less than 22 WOTM threads together!!


Try and create a thread, I've implemented my solution. What do ya'll think?

Oh!! It works awesomely! That ought to really cut down on the duplication. (And if it doesn't, it'll be pretty clear who's posting just to up their count).

Thanks Justin!
