I understand that sometimes an exact title could need to reintroduced, but am thinking of the careless duplicates. Is there a way to program tPF to reject a title already in use ? (or active in the past X# of months?) Or would it be impractical due to slightly-off wording ?
just wonderin'...
( I did search for this topic before asking, so if it's someplace, can't find it :shrugs:)
