    Is it just me or are other people noticing the same questions being asked 2 or 3 times? I'm sure I have replied to threads and then see the same question asked without my response below but with 3 or 4 other members responses? I have only noticed this over the last 2 or so weeks. Not sure if it is user error or site issue?

    Some people start multiple threads. Why ? Impatience ?

    Yeah, I've noticed it happening for about the last 4 weeks
    One day I saw 2 new threads on the same subject, and the member (newbie) had revived probably 4 or more other old threads
    As VS5.0 said, too impatient to wait for an answer....Sometimes it seems to me as if they're not satisfied with the answers received in one thread, so they'll start another thread but with a slightly different title
    At the end of the day it probably has a lot more to do with them not reading the forum rules when signing up

    Mods are obviously aware of it though and are dealing with it, as I've seen a couple of posts recently where the mods have asked them politely not to start multiple threads on the same subject, and to exercise a little bit of patience when waiting for a response

    Perhaps they think the forum is the like the instant chat you can get from various companies, like Telstra, EnergyAust, where you can ask a question and get an instant answer from a rep. ( and print out the 'chat' so when the company stuffs up again, you can refer back to it )

    Funny Losh has started a thread like this, when in his own threads he says 1 thing, then 5 minutes later he adds onto the story within the thread, then 10 minutes later adds on some more and so on and so on.....It starts out as a single page and ends up 10 pages long, with 2 other people making a comment inbetween.

    Yes there have been a couple of new users who don't seem to have cottoned on to how things work. I think I've got it mostly tidied up.

    Not sure what happened there, it should never have been visible as I removed it from the moderation queue. Never mind, got it right eventually.

    I just report the clowns... as this seems to be fairly common

    just report double/triple posts as you come across them
    (mods clean 'em up as I do on the sites I moderate)
