While I do agree that duplicates (triplicates etc) of forum posts clog up the thread sometimes there is just such an obscure topic that has been brought up like 3 years ago that I don't see a harm in making a duplicate. Also, you may have some slight differences (or big) that the original poster didn't bring up on said 3-year-old-topic. Another thing is that the comments on the first page get more attention than on say the 3rd or 4th and if there is someone who trolled or just made an ignorant remark oin this 3-year-old-topic, then it might not be worth commenting on even though you want to ask the question. Maybe forum topics that haven't been commented on in 3 years are older should be deleted? Just food for thought.

I've had 2 of my forums locked and though i know it's not personal, it kinda pisses me off. Not the point though. Do you guys think that there are just people lurking around to see if your forum is a duplicate???
Anyway tell me what you think if you've had your forum locked :)


I know right! if forums mod hate duplicate so much, then they should give all of their electronic duplicates to me.

I'm sure that all of the threads that I've started are locked lol. I used to look for duplicates, but now it's just too troublesome. It's easy for me to tell if it's a duplicate though. I just ignore it and wait to see if others have noticed it. It's takes too much effort to look it up. :/ Plus, I stopped because it wasn't even my job to do so. I get nothing out of it.
Watch out for the mini mods.


isn't it...i mean who has time to look through all that?? lol

It takes me at most 30 seconds to go and find the original thread.
It's easy and doesn't require that much time if you know how to use google.

But I guess it's that difficult for the clueless?

That wasn't rude at all.
Anyway, I just saw your locked thread about abortion.
I used Google to find the original and it was easy.

Maybe if you guys tried a little bit harder to look then the
mods wouldn't be having such a hard time dealing with all these duplicate threads.



We, the people you call mini-mods, are just helpers.
I don't see what's the problem with that.

no idea what mini mods are and don't care to find out...but my point wasn't to actually make the mods feel bad, they ARE as someone stated earlier ,doing their job. I just said that i hated it, is all and wanted to know what others felt like. Don't need a lesson. but you apparently need one since as far as i'm concerned, CLUELESS isn't a compliment now is it?

Yeah, I get what you mean, you know and it's kinda frustrating I guess for some people, I've tried to post only once, and it got locked, but I guess there is people who tries multiple times and it gets locked, it's obviously helpful that they lock some , but sometimes it'd be cool if they kinda told you to edit it or something so that it meets the requirements...

I got cc'd this thread by mocha. I agree with LosingOrbits. Use the search engine folks, that's what it's there for! Don't take it so personally when your thread is locked. It's not the end of the world.

I neither insulted nor did I say complimented you.
So you need to drop that issue now.

Anyway, even if you hate it,
there's nothing you can do about it, well except deal with it.
Rules exist to maintain order, not to be liked.

So really, your opinion on this matter will be irrelevant anyway.
I'll just let you whine all you want and leave.
