In view of the recent spike in duplicate topics, I’ld like to suggest something:
Usually, helpful community members would point out that it was a duplicate topic and post a link to the original, then a moderator comes and close the duplicate. I propose that the moderator that closed the duplicate leave a link to the respective category guidelines when they close it. Hopefully it’ll reduce the number of duplicate topics showing up.
I know, it is the duty of community members to read these ourselves, but sometimes they can be drowned by other topics, or some new members may not know they exist. This can help serve as a reminder for these people.
Feel free to leave your thoughts! It’s just one of my ideas, I doubt moderators would do so though :s
PS: would be so ironic if this was a duplicate
