Alert users of earlier dupe links


(Sam Saffron) #1

I think a very cool use of the “big blue area superimposed over preview” :tm: would be alerting users that the exact same link appears elsewhere in the topic.

For example:

Say I am in a long topic … and in post #5 someone posted a link to http://wow.awesome.com/cool, later a different user comes and composes a reply containing http://wow.awesome.com/cool, odds are this is

  1. A dupe post
  2. Somehow strongly related to the post the submitted the original link

So we should simply display this in the blue area

Bob already posted a link to http://wow.awesome.com/cool in post #5.

Yes this is already listed in releases under longer term not yet scheduled todo items.
