1. 1

When submitting a story and looking for duplicates, it would be really handy to be able to narrow the search to a given tag. For instance, looking through /t/meta to see if this idea has been brought up before.

Is this something others see as useful?

    I don’t search dups. I just try to submit and count on the internal duplicate checking… Probably I am lazy.

      I’m under the impression the only duplicate checking was done on URLs. (I could check the source, thanks @jcs, but I’ll stick with my impression for the time being.)

        It is on URLs, but has some logic in it to detect slightly different ones like one having www. and one not, or one on https:// and one not.

        As of 4 days ago, it will also give you a warning if you try to submit a story URL that was submitted a long time ago.

          I think that’s right.
