So I guess nobody noticed the little tweak which appears at the bottom of most topics then, or nobody thought it was interesting enough to post a question about it. Ho hum ...

So, yes or no? Good idea or not?

I noticed it and assumed it had always been there and I'd just not spotted it!

Worth keeping for a while to see how often people use it I guess/if it's useful. Ony time will tell :)

How does it work? Is Toby now integrated into the server? :)

I can see it being very useful in rules discussions :)

Hmm, KMB plugged in live to the server - now that is a scary though :P

It's actually a really simple mod - it uses the MySQL full text indexing and uses the MATCH expression to find the first 5 topic titles that are similar to the topic title being viewed, using a value of 0.5 for the comparison. It does rely on having decent topic titles though.
