This feature request is for the following:
IFC has been having more and more duplicates. I thought that as a solution, when you make a topic, you can have a “could also be found as” bar. Here, you could write all the different possible titles for the topic you’re making. For example:
I’m making a US airways A321 topic. I call it : US airways A321. I post it, and then I realize “oh no, it’s a duplicate!!!” I used the search bar before posting, and couldn’t find any US airways A321 topics, but the duplicate was called AIRBUS A321 (US AIRWAYS) or something like that, but I typed US airways A321, and obviously, the search bar didn’t find it.
This would be so that you could type all possible names people could put into the search tool to find your topic before creating a duplicate. I hope this helps the moderators and makes life better for IFC users.
