Could we change the forum structure so when you click 'Start New Topic' and type your thread title, the forum searches the database and shows 5 or 6 results that match your thread title.



I think this may help to stop so many threads on the same subject being started.

I agree! It will surely improve our noise to info ratio.

I love the idea, but not sure it would be easy to implement. Don't know details on how site's IP Board software works, but my thought on how it would probably need to be done to make it work is to have "start new topic" actually just be normal search with titled changed to disguise it, then once in search results screen, the "start new topic" option would still be the traditional one, basically making search results screen the only place the real "start new topic" option is actually available.

I just meant for the search results to appear between the title and body sections of the post.

I've seen it on other forums so I'm sure it's do-able.

Very possible, and definitely a nice idea. The timeline for something like that though is long, likely not this year, although you never know ;)
