Force Search Before Topic is Posted
We all know there are a glut of repeated threads, some as old as a couple of hours and another user will post the same subject. This seems to be the procedure:
User faces problem> user finds support site> user goes to forum area most relevant > user posts question
I know 99% will probably say a user should have the freedom to search if they want, but why not force a user to search before posting a topic?
I don’t if or how it would work, but if instead a new topic area, you directed them to search. Now if they have to search everytime they want to post a new topic it would get them into the habit of searching for the correct term and using it more often.
So, user makes search > results are displayed > link which says “not found what you’re looking for? Post a new topic”
or something. Maybe even include results from the codex and make thre results page longer
