when you make a post, and it gets deleted because "a similar post has been made before" that is preposterous. How is somebody supposed to know whether a post has been made one day or three years ago, amirite?

The votes are tied on 555 being right or wrong. Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree to break the tie!

It's not a matter of expecting you to know, the only thing that matters is that there shouldn't be two of the exact same post. You aren't expected to know whether or not the same thing has been posted, so don't take it the wrong way when it gets deleted.

I sent an e-mail with some suggestions a while ago.
Here's one of them:
" 2. Deleting posts.

This is a necessary thing for the same reason hiding posts is but can easily be abused. Deleting posts shouldn't ever happen without due reason. For example, assuming it's too similar to another post it should be accompanied by a link to a post that is extremely similar to the deleted post.
To stop subjection of particular users something we should work towards is a section wherein users can vote on if a post is too similar to another or not. If a large majority agrees that it's different enough the post would be saved. This would be best for the site as it gives users something fun to do and makes them feel like they have a difference. This could be adapted to if the post is too offensive and so on."

That's obviously never going to happen, I guess. The first part of it should be a given for god's sake.

Really, they need to get their shit together.

There's something on the right - it's called a search engine

so you think i would go through all the posts made to post a lousy statement on amirite? wow.

@Universe no that's the mods job - that's why they deleted it

but how was i supposed to know that a post has been made before; some of which have been made 3 years ago and i get penalized for it. I was not purposely trying to copy a post made from a long time ago -_-

You're supposed to type in the post you're going to make into the search engine box, and then if something comes up, you know it's been made before.
It's that simple.

Are you deliberately trying to be a troll?

I think I have seen this post before. You should delete it.
