Also please note this topic wasn’t locked
Bolz1 is quite eager to keep the bug data of similar/same bugs together in one place. That helps Flare to process the bugs more quickly and efficiently, thus speeding up bug fixing.
Also when people just open new topics again and again for exactly the same problem, that’s neither helpful nor nice.
If I want to post something, I should at least go to the appropriate forum and quickly read the titles of the last few topics, and then if those already are about my problem, post there. If one doesn’t know how to find and use the search function, that’s okay, but I guess when I want that someone takes the time to help me with my problems, then I should at least take the time (10 seconds) for reading a handful of topic titles before posting.
Otherwise, I shouldn’t complain when my topic gets moved or closed if appropriate.
Also I know that the method of quote-pasting bug reports into a collection topic might produce “new content”, but after all no one forces you to read every post and if you do, then please bear with the mods and scroll past that quoted post. Merging topics isn’t optimale either due to some technical reasons…
Also I am aware that a few topic closes might maybe feel a bit too quick or harsh, but after all we are not perfect, as you aren’t either. Still, in general I think it is better to close duplicate topics early on - especially for identical bugs/suggestions - and continue discussion in one topic to keep all relevant information in one place for everyone that wants to read it.
If you are uncomfortable with any specific topic close, feel free to pm me and explain why it should be kept open. A topic close can and will be revoked *if appropriate*.
