Moderators Closing Threads

I just wanted to say that I would like to see the Moderators post a link to the original thread in the event of a double post or duplicate discussion. It's frustrating reading a thread only to discover it's closed and then have to search for the original.

Re: Moderators Closing Threads

Also when a thread is closed you can see a lock on the envelope to the left of the thread. And where Post Reply is, it says Closed.

Re: Moderators Closing Threads

The fact is that the search function on forums suck. It's nearly impossible to find anything you need. Limited to more than X number of charaters (can't search "GPS" "Windows 7") and the results are cryptic meaning you have to go through 5 pages of search returns.

I agree that searching is the first thing you should do, but if you can't find what you need what are you supposed to do? And if a mod closes a thread because it's a dupe, they obviously know where the other thread is so is it really too much to ask for them to post a quick link?

Re: Moderators Closing Threads

And most of the Mods here do give you a link to the original thread. If not a member usually chimes in and gives the link before the thread is closed. Everyone gets frustrated with searching cause they really dont know to search the forums. Use the Google Search options to search. It works 100% better than the default search option

If the search function on the forums doesnt give me what I want..I go to google and search from there. Google will give me what I am looking for 99% of the time.

Re: Moderators Closing Threads

i think people make the search harder than what it is. if you want to ask a question, just use the key words of that question. you will come up with multiple threads but you have to SEARCH for the answer. if people stop commenting with useless info or argue in someones' thread then the answer would be on 1 page instead of 32 pages. just my 2 pennies...
