    How about showing links to other related topics when a new thread has been posted.

    I often have to search for additional information and is useful or is not useful. It would be nice to look up informations on threads where others have had the same question, or share similar information.

    The problem with that suggestion is that most posts are questions from newbies and if they knew of other posts on the same subject then they wouldn't post their question.

    Good suggestion. There is an addon to do this which I was considering.

    It does make it easier to find similar information to the thread you are viewing.

    Jaguar is right too. It may also encourage users to ask their questions on old threads where the original posters are no longer active.

    I don't see any harm in giving it a try though.

    You should be able to see similar threads at the bottom of a thread now when logged in.
