    Lately in the forums I've seen several instances of duplicate threads: the same thread by the same member listed twice. Sometimes, they even have different view counts. What gives?

    Sometimes someone gets overexcited and posts twice. Just report the duplicates.

    Attention seekers. I once saw someone post 6 identical threads related to their issue. The mods took care of it pretty quickly, but it never hurts to report the duplicate as mentioned above.

    In a lot of cases the duplicates are posted by mistake, especially when they are posted minutes apart in the same forum and Tapatalk has been the culprit on a number of occasions.

    As @redheeler said, if you see duplicates just send a report and we will clean it up.

    I'm seeing a lot of these recently, and some are posting 6-7 duplicates. I'm trying to do my part, but reporting them all and being required to wait 30 seconds between makes me want to just let them be.

    Any kinda of workaround or pinned thread we can put up for Tapatalk users?

    I'm sure Arn is looking into seeing if there's a fix on his side of things, but its a bug in the product that he has no control in. Other then reporting the threads, there's not much we can do.

    You can just report one of them, and if it's inconvenient to include links to the other threads, just let us know the OP has started dupes and we'll find them. :)
