    I get tired of hearing the whining every time someone starts a new thread that has been covered! (Ian) it's a forum for fudge sakes! If someone asks a question, then let's answer it! If you don't like the question because you heard it to many times then find a new forum with fresh topics to keep yourself interested.
    Closing threads because it's been covered is BS.

    I'm pretty sure this has already been brought up before.

    So you'd rather have 1000 threads asking the same question? That doesn't make sense and creates a mish-mash of redundant threads. It also forces regular users to needlessly have to plow through useless threads during their daily read routine.

    Closing redundant threads forces the n00Bs who don't bother reading/following the rules to follow general internet-wide forum policy.

    I guess you need a section for those that know everything, that way questions that have been asked before won't bore the elite club.

    There is no need to clog up the forum with redundant threads. I'm sure you would notice if we didn't do it as you waded through the many duplicate questions about range mods, registration news, the new firmware releases, the latest airline collision with a plastic bag events over & over & over & over... you get the picture. There is a search and the forum is broken down into sections to simplify viewing to help keep it un-cluttered.

    As TJ said, if you post a topic that has already been covered, especially if you post it in the wrong area, we're going to fix it. That's the way the forum works. Sorry if it offends, but it's not going to change. Too many people have requested we do it.

    Searching is really simple and effective.
