Is there any way we can send strong hints to people about browsing through existing posts before putting up a new one?

there are exactly the same ideas being put up on the ideas posts.

perhaps some sort of subject line recognition code that will automatically group similar posts into one.

While we may do that in the future, we are allowing each and every person to add their idea to enter this contest.

i have noticed you started locking out some threads while providing a link to existing topics. i am just wishing that was automated in some way to happen instanteneously.
perhaps after the contest is done.

Yea, right now it looks like with the huge influx of new members, people are just throwing their ideas up without searching to see if the topic has been mentioned before.
I can live with it because it is bringing alot of discussion to the board, I just hope many of the people continue to contribute after the contest ends.
