I have seen many threads with the same name and it gets really annoying. Look, I just searched the keywords "Quick question" and guess how many threads with that name popped up? I counted 8 on the first page only. Could we have some kind of thing like on registration things that pops up and says, "This thread name has already been taken. Here are some suggestions:_______" Could we have something like that to prevent confusion in thread names? Also, there are many threads posted that are almost exactly like each other even though they have different thread names. Could we have something that detects the thread topic and something pops up and makes you unable to type unless you change the thread topic and name?

No.


I agree because it would just mean work for the moderators and we would eventually run out available titles.

This would just lead to more confusion. People would start adding extra random words and "!"s at the end of their topic names. Quite frankly it would be very annoying.

I understand why you would want a system like this, because it would save time for everyone searching for things. However, to even create a program to do this would be a daunting task, and then you would have to implement it onto the main Invision site.

Truthfully, most topics fail to answer the question asked. Really all you can do is look through all of them. I believe you can use Google to search only this site, which may give you better results than the site search engine. But if you are just searching for "quick question" expect to get a lot of results. Try a gun name, member name, etc.

You'll do a lot better if you spread the lips with the front. Trying to wriggle the back in there first seems a bit counterintuitive.

You disagree with your own proposition? Bold.

EDIT: I suck so much.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.

Hmmm, maybe this wasn't such a good idea. Well, after much thought after posting this thread, I also agree that it would cause more confusion.
