All it takes is an "OnSubmit" event that, when triggered, pops up a dialogue that says "you are posting a new thread in bugs/complaints, are you sure? A bug is: description; a complaint is: description: click 'bug' to post here/there or 'complaint' to post there/here"

But as it doesn't affect the admins/devs enough that they care, it'll never happen. Besides, they should be focusing on updating the UI to drag BGG (and its geeks) kicking and screaming into the 20th century (no, that's not a typo)

Also:

when someone tries to post a new thread to the Bugs or Complaints forum, the system show a list of recent new Bugs / Complaints threads and ask:

"Are you sure that you are not posting a duplicate report of a new problem which has already been reported?"


(Seriously!)

This should clearly be posted in the suggestions forum.

Yup, seen that sort of system myself. It doesn't stop duplicate entries, but it can't but help.

Yes... but you have to give the OP props for demonstrating the necessity of his suggestion by posting this in the wrong forum. If his suggestion had been adopted, this thread misplacement could have been prevented.
