Thread Closing

Could you moderators make a policy of searching the forums for special thread closing tags that would indicate a thread being where it is not supposed to be,so we users can :arrow: at the topic for you to close? kinda like a "CLOSE-THIS-THREAD" entry?

Definately not

Why have people making more topics on the same subject over and over. Only time it needs to be closed if it is causing a problem

hahah. I know this is off topic but I thought that wolfden was talking to himself because you both have the same avatar. hehe. :lol:
But yeah, I understand your argument terlman or at least I hope I do, but I think that would offend people seeing someone posted "MOVED" or/and "WRONG SECTION" or, worse yet, "CLOSE THIS THREAD" on their topic when their just trying to get help.

wolfden: regardless of whether you close threads or not people always do not bother looking and post new or similar ones. It work be good to group the 10 or 50 most common problems in a Common Problems Subforum and prevent users from posting a topic or asked users to check the common problems subforum if the subject matched certain keywords.

Or something similar to avoid to mass creation of duplicate or similar threads.

Eventually these common problems with have solutions on the Wiki and that could be integrated into it instead of a common problems subforum.
