    Question What does everyone think about the related threads box?

    We've had some feedback about the similar threads box at the bottom of the page and want to know what you guys think, vote in the poll and comment. Which option do you think is the best way to go?

    For those who haven't seen this feature, it's the box at the bottom of the page that shows other threads with similar topics that you could look at.

    I think you should remove it entirely it's pretty useless for example the related threads to this one are

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...ese-be-related

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...127702-related

    http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...n-(af-related)

    Default What does everyone think about the related threads box?

    Not a fan, the related threads are often 2-3 years old and end up being closed anyway.

    I think they're funny, they are often completely unrelated and just have a common word in the title, like "great", or in this case "related".

    It's a handy feature. Even if the threads are old/closed, they still provide information on the topic. I don't see why it should be removed, if you don't need the info suggested then so be it, but it's often handy, I've found some good reads relating to different topics. I can't see the harm in leaving it there.

    Maybe if there was an age limit on the posts that show up there. I have gone to reply to a thread that was started 4 years ago by someone who is no longer around. Perhaps if it is threads started in the last 12 months or something.

    So far making it only for threads less than a year old is winning! Keep voting everyone
