Can mods/news people check before posting?
A bunch of these news stories have been posted hours, days, etc before the news person/mod posts....then it leads to parallel discussions about the same things in different threads.
For example...at 630am my time this was posted:
Then 10 hours later this was posted by the news person:
I understand the title on the second one is/was better, but a 2 second search of the word typewriter shows that the topic was already posted.
There's been a few other examples that I can't quite recall off the top of my head...it's just that in the rules this is posted twice in all caps:
I promise I'm not trying to start a fight or anything, as well all at one point or another create a topic that has already been discussed...perhaps merging/moving of topics is more appropriate? Not sure what kind of admin rights you guys have, if you can merge topics or not...
USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION!!!
EDIT: So I guess the point of this thread is, can we get some merging going on? I'd be glad to help merge topics if needed. :)
