SuperUser is haunted by repeated questions on topics as:
- Antivirus suggestions
- Virus/Spyware removing
- Best practices for troubleshooting common problems
- Best buy guides for hardware and software
In contrast to StackOverflow and ServerFault, SuperUser visitors aren't always as computer savvy or lack the searching skills to first look for an answer on our site before creating their own version.
I would like to see that these questions get one master version that is:
- community wiki
- gets updated (when needed)
- easily visible to new users
This could be done by giving them a more prominent spot (as a sticky) or by suggesting them when people use certain keywords. But at least this way we can close all these related or duplicated questions and refer them to one questions for each topic.
I understand that this won't take care of all duplicates, but at least it's a start. Any suggestions for other effective solutions are more than welcome
