#1 - 2013/08/19 12:24:00 PMVery often I'm seeing Blue posters lock up threads saying the copy/paste line "There are existing threads on this topic. If you’d like to add anything further, please continue the discussion in one of those."
Now, this is a good initiative and I'm not saying it's a bad idea. But please, -please- link the existing threads or merge them into one discussion thread. If you leave people hanging (as the "existing threads" tend to actually get buried unless it's a hot topic on the first page for hours at a time) they'll have no idea where to post, feel put out and in some cases they will just make another, similar thread a few days later. If you make it clear which thread is suitable for discussing a topic, there will be less duplicate threads of the same topic.
k, thx and bai.
