Same Question Threads?

Bug  Same Question Threads?
Hi Guys,

Should I start closing threads that ask the same questions and start deleting them or putting them into an archive at the bottom of the main forum?

RE: Same Question Threads?
Lock them and link the poster to the FAQs List if the question can be answered there, I guess. After that, you could probably archive them, but I doubt anyone would look in it since new people don't know how to use the search function.

You could just make a basic message to include in locked threads (also could save that message in notepad or some shit so you can easily copy/paste it again lol), containing the FAQs link (if needed) and a little note telling them to try the search function before posting.

Just my two cents.

Never delete, that is community management 101. Either archive or do like the others have said above Smile

So far it seems we are going to be archiving the posts.

Thanks for the replies. Im going to keep the thread open a few more days and then Ill make a decision with Neo & Morpheus.
