    On some other forums they have an auto search when you type in the title of a new thread. It show similar threads below to prevent all the duplicates of threads. So if I type in somthing like "how do you jailbreak" you would see about a hundred threads that answer your question. I agree that people should just learn to search but the fact is they don't search and this will search for them and put it right in front of their eyes. Wouldn't it be nice to see less repeat threads and even better... there won't be anymore posts that say "I'm not telling you until you search!" because for every repeat thread there are 10 posts saying "SEARCH"

    I totally agree with that. Make a pole and maybe we can get it implemented into this forum
