As the forums start to grow, the chance for duplicate questions\discussions increases exponentially. It might be handy to be able to have a link at the top of a thread, or even lock\merge threads, to avoid duplicate information and\or a a dilution of pertinent answers.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.

    Hey @pooh thanks for this recommendation. Actually we'll have this functionality available and can definitely do that as needed. I'd guess as we get more populated with questions this will come in handy though I can't see too many places to apply this now. Of course, you can always help me find those places too and flag me if needed.

    @VioletChepil does your second post count as a duplicate? 😉

    Ah yes it does @Marc. Thanks for spotting. I lost connectivity and think I just double posted on that one! Cheers

    @Pooh and @Marc this is the merged feature in action for example:
    https://community.fing.com/discussion/283/multiple-isps-can-fing-see-them-both#latest
    It appears in the list as merged now:
    https://community.fing.com/discussions
    Then you click and it takes you to the thread with content merged.
    What do you think?
