    Small thing: maybe the "Start Conversation Now" box could be removed

    The box at the bottom of an article page that says "There are no conversations about this article. Start a conversation now" doesn't always show that there IS a thread about an article.

    I think it should be removed from the page altogether. When you click on it, it doesn't start a thread, it just takes you to the Article Discussion board, anyway.

    Very, very small thing, but maybe it'll cut down on duplicate threads.  :-)

    I second.....

    If your not smart enough to get back to the forum and start a topic, you probably shouldn't be here.

    and......

    we have had a lot of double threads lately, and not just noobs.

    Some threads never show on the article page.

    i actually think "start conversation now" would be a nice feature if it worked. often, i'm just to plum lazy to go through the process of copying the address, go to the forum and start a conversation etc.

    It doesn't do that, though. You'd think it would bring you to a Post New Topic page with a link already inserted, but it merely takes you to the Article Discussion board.

    Sometimes it links a thread....other times says start new and a thread exists

    like i said, it would be a great feature if it worked .  my vote would be not to throw the feature out, but to fix it. a small thing, but i think it would be nice.

    If you use the person's name correctly, a thread is created which then shows up on the death entry.

    Seems like most are able to figure it out. If multiple threads are started, who cares?, a mod can combine the threads.
