What Paula meant was that you should link to your original request, so librarians don't attempt to complete your requests that have already been completed. Adding notes of "PLEASE SAVE DUPLICATE WORK!" just confuses the matter more.

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments They will not find out until they have done some work, which is a waste of time, unless it is a deletion then they will get a message saying the quote does not exist, if it is a change / edit to the text then there will be work to do before seeing the change

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments Since I have done all the quotes in the main thread, I dont know which of the new threads have duplicate requests that have already been done. Someone would need to go through each individual new request you have made and check and since most where changes to text it will take time.

If you want to go through them, check and then delete the duplicate thread then thats fine, just leave the ones that where not done in the main thread.
