    Similar threads are an important improvement in the new forum software, vBulletin 3. When a new thread is posted, a search is made based on the first post to find threads that contain similar content, and threads that get a score above a certain value get listed at the bottom of the new thread as "Similar threads". This allows forum users to read more on the topic if they wish, and see what was said in the past. In short, it will allow members to benefit more easily from the archives of nearly 150,000 posts that this site has.
