A lot of time we will see duplicate threads especially in the Breaking Alternative News Section. A way to prevent this is to use the search feature.
But, there is a catch. Don't put your whole headline into the search bar. Use only one keyword. Example:
If I see an article about Congress votes to Impeach Bush and I want to post it and I search for: congress impeach Bush and don't get anything.
I think it's alright to post.
But, an article is posted that says Impeachment under way for Bush. A good way is just to type Bush, because most likely it was a
recent submission and it will show at the top of the search engine.
Also, check in the breaking alternative news section board and not just the recent posts as it could be buried by many posts that just came about.
No Problem to everyone. In the beginning of my term here, I use to always submit news that was already posted. After that, I was discouraged from
posting. But, now I make sure I cover all of my bases before I post. Now, I probably got one submission that was duplicate, and I caught it right
after I posted it.
