Duplicate Ideas

Status: Not For Us

Most giffgaff ideas now turn out to be duplicates.

 

To solve this I suggest that when you type the name of your idea (the title) the system runs a search for this on the ideas section.  It then suggests to the user (perhaps a column on the right) that there are other threads similar and then they could choose not to post it.  I know everyone says 'just search' but the reality is there are many people who don't.  This bit of coding that  is probably not too complex (I'm no programmer), would save a lot of everyone's time!

At this moment in time, we feel that there is only so far we can go to get a member to use search before they post their idea. The search box is top right, and includes auto-suggest, - it says to the right of the screen, "Search first before posting", it states to search in the Idea Guidelines, the duplicators ask members to use search, the Educators PM them about search and a duplicate guide is soon to go live. If someone posts an idea despite these 8 things, they are set on not using the Idea Board properly. So for the few members this might actually help, it would annoy a lot more of those who do participated properly.
