title says it all. kinda tired of seeing the same subjects over and over again. should i get ipad, ipad 2 predictions, wifi issues, etc. being a day 1 ipad owner, i'm sure i'm not the only one who sees the same threads over and over, and would like to see new and exciting subjects.

You should probably just stop browsing the forums altogether, then. I'd guess 90% of the questions or issues posted in any given forum have been answered before.
90% of forums have stickies for common subjects so that duplicate threads aren't created....like every subforum on macrumors.

I agree with OP. These "should I buy iPad?" and "I'm not happy with iPad because I don't know how/why to use it" should be their own singular topic(s).

Should also have positive threads stickied, such as the iPad tricks and tips thread https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/889124/ and maybe a thread on how to get movies on iPad (Handbreak and import to iTunes or download AirVideo and do live streaming) since I've seen a number of those in the past week.

One of the sticky threads should be a thread for asking mods to create sticky threads for common subjects.

Maybe they should just delete the forums.

that way you can pretend like there are new topics.

its win win.

a good way to keep sections clutter free and easy to find certain things is to have 1 thread about a topic, not a million. when you create a sticky, you have that 1 thread at the top for all to see and post in there making other new threads actually have a chance of being read.

now i may be wrong but it seems like mods are overloaded that they can let multiple threads (5 or even more) be created at the same time and they will not get merged or anything.

it's happening in every section and what doesn't help is smart ass comments from members mocking every thread made as some of you already have in this thread.

given the ridiculousness of repetitive threads the last few days, BUMP! not trying to be oppressive here, but it's the same threads over and over.

Then just stop reading them. Stickies don't help much because people don't read them or do searches. Most users miss the entire Guides area that answers thousands of threads on here. All you can do is report threads because this problem will never go away.

Don't expect anything to happen, people generally ignore any type of searching and it really gets on my nerves sometimes.. We could do with some kind of limit before they can make a thread, as they all seem to be users who have zero posts..
