indeed, identical posts are suppressed: :)
It looks like you've just tried to submit a node that has already been submitted. Luckily our staff in the control room was quick enough to press the Emergency Stop button before anyone got hurt.

If you can't see your post, it probably hasn't been approved within its section by the moderators. Don't fret go to Newest Nodes and chances are it'll be listed there. Others will see it as well, so sit back, relax, and enjoy PerlMonking.

If you want to see unapproved nodes as well as approved ones, go to your User Settings and turn on "Show Unapproved Nodes".

If you need to change something about your node, you can go to it and edit it, even after you have submitted it. Alternatively, you can reply to your own node. Whatever you do, don't re-submit the same content! Our system isn't so unstable that node submissions get dropped on the floor.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    A more general solution would be desirable: a question will be rejected if it has been asked before... probably to difficult to implement.

      a question will be rejected if it has been asked before...

      What if a better answer is now available?

      Or a new member knows or sees a better solution?

      With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
      Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
      "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

        Good point!

      Quite a thread drift ...IMHO such a hypothetical technology is better used to automatically link to older questions.

      Maybe connected to a reminder when previewing.
