    Hi Malathy..I would like to inform that lot of questions are posted again and again inspite of repeatedly asking them to search before posting.Sometimes I give them the link else just ignore.Is there any way to avoid this?The repeated thread also get responses.
    Threads in movies are in Forwarded messages annd vice-versa..Some Forwarded messages are in Snippets of life..For a regular ILite,who reads all threads.. is frustrating some times...and friends may feel bad for not getting any replies..

    can we do anything to rectify this..?

    Hi Malathy,

    I totally agree with Supriya here.

    Many duplicate threads are created and replies continue to be posted in them.

    Many fwd messages are posted not only in Snippets, but also in Health, beauty and other forums too ! Sometimes, I stop myself since we don't want to hurt the people who start the thread..but it continues...

    I do my best to give the correct links and bring attention to such posts too.

    One more thing, people start new threads to introduce themselves since they are not aware of the "Who am I " thread. Probably this thread can have a link in the "Home page" so that there is more visibility.

    Thanks
    Krithika

    Supriya & Jithiks,

    You are all senior members here and are well versed with the site. While new members when they take time to figure out what's here already, because of the initial enthu and excitement to participate in an interactive community like ours want to get started with posting what they have in their mind.

    All we (moderators and admins) can do is keep educating the members with FAQs (like "search before you ask"), by merging the new threads with already existing threads on a similar topic and keeping them informed via an Email/PM, etc.

    Regarding forward messages or messages taken from other sources to be put in the forward message forum and not in any other, we have recently posted an announcement too. (I would like to mention here that it is not the new members alone who do this, lots and lots of long time members also do!!). About 'who am I' thread, we give a link to it in the welcome email.

    We can only keep educating members in various methods and the rest lies in the hands of the members in trying to adhering to it. If you have better suggestions, we(admins & mods) are all ears here.
