I often find it hard to find back the old answers that fit the most popular "duplicate".

What do you think of creating a Meta that would be updated (when needed) and would contain all the links to the most popular questions/answers we use as duplicate?

This could be a featured Meta so we could all have a quick access to it. That would make it easier to close-as-duplicate sometimes.

I'd make it simple and as a list. There could be more than one answer for each question.

  • I just added some links. Only one I couldn't find / wasn't sure what you meant is the pathfinder one. There are a bunch of questions, but none broad enough to cover "pathfinder issues".

    While fishing for Qs, I also noticed some keep returning but have no real reference we can link to. In those cases, we would need to create a question and answers. For example: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/65172/… Is it worth making another list of Qs we still need? (in this case "How do I determine if my logo is too similar to an existing one?"

    While we're looking through common questions, consider this related similar idea (which didn't quite happen... hopefully this attempt will fare better): Can we have a canonical “One beginner design question to (link to) them all”? Commented Jan 8, 2016 at 22:55

1 Answer 1


Here are some other possible questions based on votes. I'll keep adding more as I find them. Ideally, we should make sure the ones we use as reference Qs are cleared of long comment exchanges and generally well-presented :P
