Thread spamming due to repeating questions/posts

Posted on 2011-05-29 11:08 UTC by Reflektorfalke. Status: Under consideration, Categories:

Most threads are about users reporting bugs / problems and asking for help or features.
Many issues are posted multiple times, resulting in endless threads with repeating posts that are hard to read. Answers already there are not found, very same questions are posted again and again. Users give up, donĀ“t search anymore at all, making the problem even worse...

Solutions for this brainstorm


Solution #1: Sticky Posts to avoid thread spamming!?

Posted on 2011-05-29 11:08 UTC by Reflektorfalke.

Would it be possible to add a "Sticky Post" to each thread that always appears before the newest post?

In this post the OP (and maybe everyone with a certain number of posts and/or thanks) may maintain a list of known issues and the related solutions...
(Something like a "Micro Wiki" ;-) )


Solved issues
- This does not work anymore - [link to solution]
- Other problem - Upgrade to latest version

Open Issues
- New problem - fixed in next release
- Another bug - working on it

- Feature 1 - Next release
- Feature 2 - Planned

I think this might be a way to reduce thread size as well as frustration among users...

What do you think? Possible?
