I don't know how many times I posted something and then get it locked because someone else has posted the same thing within hours before. Neowin needs a system that tells a poster that a similar thread was already posted. First off, the search on Neowin doesn't work entirely well, I have searched for similar threads but it didn't find any, and later I find my thread locked.
Here is how the system would work.
Please don't sarcastically tell me that we already have this and its called search, that doesn't pertain to this. I use the search and it doesn't effectively find posts a majority of the time. I have to go in manually in to forum sections to find a similar thread.
1. A member creates a post.
2. Then the members hits post topic.
3. A red warning box appears and says "Sorry, post already exists"
This would save members a whole lot of trouble and would prevent locked threads.
