I done this recently (as in about a hour ago)
Now when i done it I did check out the "new" tab and I did not notice.
It was (shocker) a mistake on my part and nothing to do with me being a idiot, I have been working all day go check out the news and find something
like that flashing up as breaking news. I run to ATS have a quick check of the new threads, dont see any, post the news, find that its already been
posted, then put in a quick comment to say i have seen my mistake. END OF.
it happens every now and then, I will admit something that most probably wont admit to on this site.
I like to be the guy who breaks the news to you folks on ATS and I have at lest once before posted something only to find its already been posted. But
most of the time I do notice, I notice that someone else has posted the news before me and I just add to a existing thread (as we all should be
doing). If i have not noticed then usually with in the first 2 or 3 comments I will say "oops already posted".
As for Starts and flags, for me its just that i like to be the one who gets the scoops, if i get some S&F's along the way so be it but I am more
interested in getting the ball running in what could turn out be a huge thread. That's what I am after I value response to my threads over anything
Most members are like this and behave just like this.
I see it all the time, quite often i am the guy with the "already posted sorry" comment on the first page because i spend quite a bit of time around
getting annoyed over it really is not going to achieve much.
and calling people "idiots" for doing something that you yourself might very well one day also do is probably a little.... well.... idiotic.
