Exclamation Check If Already Posted

Recently there have been a few folks who have been inadvertently re-posting the same or similar threads that are here already.

To help you avoid this and saving me from having to delete and/or move the duplicate content and then PM you to inform you what happened, there is now an optional check you can make before posting what you think is "new" information to the Fan Forum.


As you can see in the above image, now prior to posting a new thread, you're able to check your content against the entire Fan Forum by clicking on the "Check If Already Posted" button, and if you find the same as what your "new" content is, then you can stop right there and either don't post at all or go to the relevant topic you've found and simply reply with your comments there instead. Once the "Check If Already Posted" button is clicked, a new window will appear with any search results containing posts that contain the same text that you've included in your message.

If the search results don't find a match, you can assume your content is brand new to the Fan Forum and can then close the window and post your message normally However, if there is a duplicate, even after clear search results, I'll be sure and follow-up with you

Obviously, this problem occurs completely by accident, but the end result usually ends up in frustration for both you and me, so having this new check option available, should help alleviate any misunderstandings

I hope you find it helpful, any questions, feel free to PM me
