Duplicate topics – moving / merging
A way to move/ merge duplicate topics and their posts.
On our forum there are a number of topics that are prone to users duplicating – starting a completely new topic with the same title and – frequently the same question/comment.
This breaks the unwritten rules of the forum and is highly irritating to those users who comply. It often results in the need to moderate the ensuing barrage of comments and can lead to the, often new, user never posting again.
We did foresee the issue but it has now stated to become a regular event.
Is there any way – even manually – that the admin can move/merge the wayward topic into the pre-existing topic.
1 – A plugin – that works
or 2 – ability to fake login as the wayward user and re post in the pre-existing topic, deleting the rogue
or 3 – a process to edit the tables (which ones) so that the post is listed correctly.
