There's some overlap in various discussions on this board (or busy forums in general).

A related post/similar discussions add-on might be useful.

Possible implementations:
#1 - for the passive reader (list recent post with similar words in the title or post)
#2 - for the discussion-starter (before starting a new thread the propsed post is compared to existing threads)
#3 - for the active reader (others can suggest related links/threads, pref. with some weight depending on user level)

  • I think this could be handled via whatever tag add-on gets developed.
  • Agree that could solve 80% of the issue.

    Is it possible for now to make related posts / similar discussions in vanilla 1 or 2 ?
  • Finding similar threads is a very useful feature, and doing the search before the user posts a new discussion (as uservoice.com) does, prevents duplicate threads.

    Vanilla currently has a negative rating on "Preventing duplicate threads" at http://www.forum-software.org/vanilla/review.
