Consolidating Threads/How Do We Encourage People To Use Search Function
Just as an example, there are currently at least 5 active threads about lobster rolls and/or lobster for Maine in the New England board. This "multiple thread syndrome" is very discouraging to those of us who are trying to be helpful in response.
So, how do we encourage users to first take advantage of the search capabilities? and is it feasible for the Chowhound Team to consolidate/lock/point to a single thread?
Yes, every time I log in to the Boston Area board, there is someone looking for a North End recommendation or a Back Bay recommendation. The people that look for such and mention that they have searched but want to talk about something more specific - I completely understand, but how many times can people reiterate their experiences and favorites in the North End?
Does the Chowhound Team have any suggestions for this - maybe we should search!!
