    so after we create the thread, what factors precisely will the site look for? same words in title line?? same content? just checking cause if same words, I can always change the words to stand out more but still have the same content inside said thread.

    mao ng it would be best nga itugot ni nga feature para at least makuha2xan ang trabaho sa mga MODS. less hassle pa sila ilang part. unya dili na mo bug-at ang system sa istorya.net.

    whatchathink sir beor?
    I am looking at granting "Thread Closing" but I want it so that the prefix will change automatically. Giving "Delete" permissions is tricky, risky, and prone to a lot of abuses. One example is circumventing certain rules such as "Bumping". Seeing makes mods jobs easier. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Words in titles. It doesn't scan content.

    * Implemented some server tweaks.

    How about a preventive measure for "necros" from resurrecting threads that are long dead and irrelevant anymore?
    dead thread means that there has been no activity (no new replies) for a period of time.

    Necro(s) [short for necromancer] is a colloquial term we use here to describe the user that resurrects a dead thread.
    If X posts a new reply (2012) on a 2008 thread, X is considered a necro.


    Q: but what if its a query in BnS? like: "naa pa ni?" "availabale pa ni?"

    S: it is always up to the X to check the date when the thread was created.
    but there are still some that post on old threads.
    a query on a thread created 2 years back may obviously not be for sale anymore or X is not active in the website anymore.
    for these cases, my suggestion is inline with sir Beor's idea which is to put up an automatic prefix system that differentiates this threads. like "OLD" or anything close to that.

    or a prompt that would make X aware that the thread is old. just like the prompt you received when your post is too short.
    something like:
    "You are posting to an old thread. Continue?"
    Then a Yes or No dialogue box, the same one you experience when you log out.

    Q: what if its a reply to long-standing threads or threads made on 2008? like sticky threads and such.

    S: this is not a dead thread, simply because it has not been idle for a long time.
    so no action required.

    If implemented, this might prove useful in the Science and Tech sections, wherein information before may not be relevant today, and bringing up that dead threads will just clutter the 1st page.

    It might make the same effect to the BnS section also.

    note:
    Q = question
    S = suggestion

    i hope you get my point.
    if there is an existing countermeasure for this, just ignore my suggestions. hehe

    Hi boss, is this plugin only prompts to user for similar or exact thread titles but still allowed to continue posting? As you can see in below screenshot, a spammer still allowed to create duplicate threads.
