    I have noticed several duplicate articles posted to the board over the past few weeks. Might be helpful to do a SEARCH before posting your article to see if someone may have already posted it. This has certainly helped me to avoid duplicate posts a few times, so I thought I would pass it along to see if it would help save some board space.

    I first do a search for the name of the person who wrote the article. If that doesn't bring up anything, I then do a search by topic, using key words. If that doesn't bring up anything, I post to the board and take my chances. :)

    I'm guilty of 2 duplicates in a bit over a year..I just don't think it's that big of a problem, maybe it is. :dunno:
