If the idea is to ask members to think about whether the subject is actually of any interest before creating a new thread then it’s a very good point, but not just one that solely concerns service disruption threads! I have always found this forum very useful in determining what is actually happening during disruption; for example, forum members often post things like “tickets being accepted on xxxx trains” or “line now cleared”. We all know how difficult it can be to come by that sort of information when you are either stuck in the delay yourself (as a passenger or a member of staff!) or attempting to plan a journey. Scrolling through a relevant thread is a much quicker and easier process than posing a question as a new thread (and surely avoids having the forum cluttered up with threads asking very specific questions which will be of little interest to most?) Disruption threads often start as one liners then develop (as do the incidents to which they refer). I know this isn’t NRE but if sharing useful information is not considered part of the forum’s remit I think that’s a bit of a shame, personally.
