    Sorry the new thread was "what's up with the coffin"
    By the way we are now back up higher on the first page!Fishbulb-does this thread have anyway we can continue to refer people to it besides it's title? Any number or I guess the date you started it. I also refer new posters ( or even not-so-new) to do a search. Last post on the coffin thing I had also told them to just type in "coffin" then click on search.

    great thread that must have taken ages keep posting compliments to keep it on the first page!!


    It only took me about ten minutes, but that's only because I used the "search" function. Now, if everybody used it, this thread would be superfluous, but I guess you can't have everything, can you?

    The easiest way to refer people here is to right click on the thread and select "copy link location" or copy the url of the thread, then paste it into the thread in question.

    Once you're able to do links (Level 3, IIRC), just post this link: [url]http://www.tv.com/lost/show/24313/duplicate-thread-thread-look-here-to-see-if-a-topic-has-been-discussed/topic/11431-789567/msgs.html?tag=board_topics;title;13[/ url] without the space between the / and the url.

    Yep, I saw. All the more reason to keep this at the top.

    On the thread titled "A theory on the island's location" you're not going to believe this...hold on...It was a "new" poster thinking it was probably limbo-(purgatory)! Don't worry, I was nice and just told them to just type in the word purgatory and click on search and of course - referred them to your thread!!! We got to keep this on the 1st page

    Well, Lost is a very popular show and almost everything has been said or made into a thread so it is kinda hard to make new things up when everything has been done!

    AND, I have been reported to the TV.com Moderator. WHY? I made the Create your own Lost 4th season. What was wrong with that?

    It probably classes as a game. If you want to discuss such things I suggest you find an alternate place to do so *cough* ADDRESS IN MY SIGNATURE *cough*

    You made two identical threads. I reported one so that it would be deleted. I didn't know that they gave ToSses for that.

    And yes, Lost is a very popular show, but we've barely even scratched the surface of what can be discussed. When somebody comes up with a new theory, or something that's actually worth discussing, wouldn't it be nicer to be able to find the thread, rather than having to pore through a thousand "OMG CHARLY!" and "WHO ArE In tEh CoFFIn?" threads?

    This is just another booster really, its getting to the bottom of the page. But regarding your very last statement fishbulb, does this mean that there is more than one person in the coffin!! Oh no, all those newbies will be starting a load of new "How many people are in the coffin" threads. Just for reference, I think it could be Ben and Locke getting cosy.

    I was thinking of making a post asking if Jack's dad was dead. I didn't see any thread about it and just wanted to check in first.

    i am relatively new to this site, and i have to agree with alot of people that some topics are posted FAR TOO MUCH. now when i post a thread, a do a quick search to make sure there is not one that is similar that i can post my thoughts on. it takes maybe 5 minutes to do and the fact that people keep making repeating topics is disgusting. and why are there so many forums about ridiculous topics like Charlie still being alive? i mean come on, i understand if he was your favourite character, but he won't be coming back as a main character, that is pretty obvious to me, and there is certainly no need to posted a dozen different forums to discuss it. that is why it is so hard to find good topics on here. anyway, thanks for this post. i don't know how well it is working considering topics go up daily about Charlie being alive or jack's dad being dad, but i will do my part and start referring people to this topic. cheers

    Who here thinks I should start adding "Richard Alpert" threads to this. I noticed a new one that started recently (clicky)
