Generally: How can I determine if a theme has already been done?


How do I know if my theme idea was already used by another constructor?  Is there a database of some sort?  Maybe a list of quotes that have been used already.  I have had some theme ideas that turned out to be unoriginal, i.e. already done.  I'd like to save some time.

Well, this site (cruciverb) has a pretty good database of entries and where/when they were used, with links to the grids. Also,, but no links to grids. has lots of data and can link to the complete list of entries in a particular puzzle. And, of course has everything that has appeared in NYT.
