Yes ! This is because I have noticed a repeat of many questions here.
But on a second thought I asked myself : suppose the question is just coincidental, somebody could be unjustly sanctioned. Again , the question may become necessary at that point in time . This season of bearish market will precipitate questions about investments, which could be coincidental and necessary.
Therefore, while it should be discouraged , sanctions should be minimised .
I observed that some of those repeated questions are coincidence in a way whereby someone might ask a question unknowingly to him or her,the question has been asked already...
Though there also some spammers that keep re-posting questions with the hope that they will use that to get upvotes from musing and other users....
I believe that musing.io should create a feature that would not allow a user to post a question which is already posted on the platform,i believe that will really help to minimize the number of repeated questions on this platform...
Seriously they should, there was a time I had this same thought. If one doesn't have a question, there is no need asking anything. It's better than asking same question over and over again, it makes the platform looks like it has nothing new to offer. So I agree that this guidelines and strict rules be giving concerning asking answered questions again. And this can be done by down voting the question so that users can understand it's an answered question .
Thanks for this beautiful question. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to you and musing as a whole
Yeah that should be something that should be adressed. If quality of the site is not maintained it is doomed to die a sudden death unfortunately!
Musing can not stop any muser from asking a question because it is against the general principle of our dear platform, but it can try to minimize repetition of questions by using a fusion function.
Each time it finds many types of similar questions, it simply merges them to provide better answers to all those who have asked or followed this specific question.
I hope it helps. Thank you!
Oh to me, I will say musing.io do not need that strict guildances for now as people are still joining this dapp and many users are also joining day by day.
So to me, by reposting the old questions, it will give the new users to also get to know about some questions that they might have missed before joining.
So for now, I don't think musing.io need strict guidances for that but as more and more users are joining musing.io, then, there will surely be need to avoid plagiarism and spamming.
