We've all seen subjects get posted where it's clear that someone didn't search, and sometimes that they didn't even read the topic titles for the day before repeating that same topic. Does anyone have a creative solution to encourage people to actually look and search before hitting that "New Topic!" button? I know that the owner/mods could come up with a rule, to which anyone joining would to agree, that they'll do at least a cursory search under threat of the Ban Hammer... but is there a way to lead people to do the right thing to begin with? Generally, I'll post the SearchFirst animated gif, and then some links to where a subject has already been raised and discussed thoroughly, but I'm hoping someone has something better by which the more experienced users could encourage excellence from the newer members. Thoughts?
