Post Rule: Duplicate Threads

I am suggesting a new rule on new threads created:

Threads that are considered duplicate are if they are the same exact topic of another thread that has been active in the past 2 weeks or so. The topic must be indistinguishably the same.

I think this rule may help prevent creation of threads that are not neccesary as they have been already posted before.

I am a geek, and I am proud of it. I love computers, and all kinds of nerdy technology.

Default Re: Rule: Duplicate Threads

So, here's my thing. In certain areas of the site, yeah, I think that it is valid that if there are uber similar threads, let's merge them or so have it. But in other areas, for as annoying as those "duplicate" threads can be, I feel that they're necessary. You might go to P101 and say "wow there's so many threads asking one thing", but the reality is, if we didn't allow them, we'd be forcing people to ask their questions in someone else's thread- and that defeats the purpose, and isn't really fair. If 2 users posted the same thing in drugs and alcohol or DL&G, would we merge the threads together? No, it'd be pretty rude if we did. I think we notice this more in the Puberty area because of the volume of threads, but I don't think that matters.

So yes, I think that on a case-by-case basis, we kind of do this already - it happens in GD sections more often than not, but if there's a thread that you think should get merged or not exist, report it and we'll take a look at it.
