    It would be a great addon to the site.

    So when some one posts then they reposts after, then that second post gets merged with the above post.

    Do you know what i mean?

    i added this feature at linerider.org and it really i helpfull. if you double post, it edits the second post into your first one and it puts "Edit:" in between so you cna distinguish between the two posts. it also works for tripple posts and so on.

    I think this would be a good addition, as "bumping" is overused and even abused at times. Though sometimes it is necessary to double post, to differentiate between some radically different ideas.

    It should only do that if the posts are under 24 hours apart. Bumping is okay when it has a purpose.

    with the automerger there is a feature that allows you to do that. so it would only merge double posts within 24 hours of the original post.
