I've got an idea I'd like to share however I don't know if its already been done or not. Doing a search netted 0 results but that may just be the way I did the query. Any other ways other than going through all of them?

Are you looking for a specific idea posted, or whether a general concept of an article has been submitted?

If the latter, you just have to search. There are over a thousand published ideas so searching is the only real way. But also, even if the idea was submitted before, I don't that as a reason not to republish the same concept again. Your take on it might be different than a previous poster.

Did you click on Community Ideas on the left-hand side of any page on the site and then use the search box at the top of that page ("Search ideas")? Just search for a keyword or two from your own idea. If you can't find anything, chances are that no one has written about it yet.

Dave created a feature that I really like: http://garden.org/rand.php

Each time you go there, you see a different random plant photo, random multi-plant photo, and a random Idea.

Like spin-the-bottle!
