Any way or method to reduce redundant topics


More and more I see that the questions are repeating in a way that makes this community not usable, can we think together in a method to at least reduce this? sometimes now I feel that I don't want to check the community due to that.

That's up to the person doing the posting. They can either look first or they can ask. It's just something you have to suck it up.

At least that gives us a chance to repeat answers... oooooooooooh that was below the belt, sorry sorry I couldn't help it 😃 Teasing! Marcus is right, you can't make people behave a certain way... this forum is there for them to ask things, so that's what they do.. Some forums allow for merging topics, but since this ones defaults to sending an email to every participant every single time a reply is posted, I don't think that is a good idea in this case 🙂

It's because of the contest for the S3 many people have reposted questions just to get entries for the contest. It wasn't that bad before. Also, I made a suggestion to make the Search icon more visible, if you agree +1 my idea : http://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/search_bar_a_little_bit_more_noticeable

Funny that you post about repeating posts when you yourself have just repeated a post, this was brought up in the forum a couple of months back lol.
Kid Android, I only subscribed to the community in less that two weeks, or so, one of the first things that I noticed the amount of repeated questions being presented, and I agree that might my post be repeated, and sorry for that, but still the issue was not covered, I think most of the answers are *611, customer service, self service, SIII, iphone5 ...etc, which makes them looks not good.

Issa, you saw repeated questions frequently because people only came here for the contest. Now that has changed and that can already be seen in the community. Furthermore, you cannot bring up an "issue" like this when you yourself have been known to repeat the same answer when it's clearly already given by someone else. You have been 'warned' more than once about your double posting answers already by other members however you continue to do so. Being new is not an excuse because you should be reading the replies in threads before replying and if you aren't, you should start doing so otherwise you run the risk of having your posts deleted and can eventually lead to a suspension/ban.

Heck you did it today to kid android about the sim card contacts. Your answer was slightly different but basically said the same thing. You've caught the attention of a few of us early on. But I can see u want to help.! Ahmad had a great suggestion, read it all then say to yourself "will my comments add to this conversation"? If the answer is no, move on. I u
