    wouldnt it not work 100% if it had a character different or would it search for threads with something close to what was put in there

    Honestly if people just named their thread correctly we wouldn't have that many problems to begin with

    people rarely use the spell check;)

    not that it is a bad concept, I just doubt it would be used....the search feature is similar and doesnt stop the doubles, but again as Prx says, title wording is everything.

    no, actually I'm one of the wurstest offenderz heer;)

    Just that people are usually in a rush to get the info out or their question up that checking for the simplest of things doesn't usually cross the train of thought.

    suggestive test/ input would be good, if that is possible
    all in all, i think it's a good idea
