PLEASE CHECK FOR EXISTING THREADS!!!

Before posting a topic, please check if a thread already exists for it. I know it is annoying to have to search for your topic. However, it's even more annoying to have a bunch of disjoint threads hanging around on the same topic. If too many disjoint threads are developed, I'll delete some of them, and they might be yours.

Hey - I posted this topic two days ago!
 
If only people would:

Seriously, could you nest the dupe threads under an umbrella parent, to cut down the number of top-level topics, and marshall the wisdom into some useful hierarchy?
 
I guess this should be under "Suggestions", but it kinda fits here too.

I've been trying to figure out how to merge threads in YaBB and have been unable to find such a function; I've e-mailed YaBB's creators for help. If anyone already knows how to, please send an e-mail to

Well just leave the threads double and don't care too much. After all you aren't a control freak, are you?
 
How about using something more mature than web boards? From experience I find most of the time web boards tend to attract childisch users. How about mailling lists (with a web archive), or newsgroups, or maybe something else I don't think about currently.
 
Well BTW: the post no threads double thread, is there several times! Now so thats also a paradox Cheesy
