    Question Reporting of duplicate threads or posts?

    Hay admins/Mods,

    I just want to know if it is acceptable to use the "Report Post" button to report duplicate threads and or posts?

    If not, what is the correct or preferred method?

    Thanks
    Switched away from windows XP to Ubuntu 9.04. Never turned around to look back.

    Yes
    Use the report post to report posts.
    The report post window(below the input window) gives a list of things you can report about, like spam, moving or deleting or even problems with a post(trolling, flaming, rude/insulting etc,etc)
    The staff actually sees report posts(in the staff lounge, or whatever they call it, we normal users do not see that part of the forum), where as they only see a post made in a thread if they come about it.

    Just explain the problem.
