Repetitive questions isn't that big a problem as repetitive answers I think. Like at least see what others have already said about that question and if u don't have anything new to add,just let it slide. If someone has already suggested xyz place why do it again? U can simply upvote it to show that yeah this answer is what I'd suggest
I agree with both your points. However, let’s be sensitive to everyone. Repetitive questions is something that can be avoided but, repetitive answers is something that is subject to - preference, awareness, knowledge (you can’t suggest something if you haven’t tried it). There is a lot of repetition on the page but, saying stuff like “grow up and get a life” is something that would create a hostile environment on this page. This page is meant for sharing thoughts back and forth and let’s not undermine anybody’s choices and freedom of speech. Let’s learn to be more accepting of each other and put forth our points in a more sensitive manner. I hope you understand :)
There are just repetitive questions and repetitive answers.
I asked for places where I can find the best pav bhaaji and then I see others asking the same question after less than 15 minutes. This happened with 2 other questions related to second hand books and yulu bikes as well. Tbh, it's really annoying. It's even more annoying when comes to answers. There are subjective questions yet people simple copy paste the answers mentioned above. People here really need to get a life and grow up. No offence. :)
I totally get what you're saying. I don't want to name people but there are some of them who literally copy paste each and every answer. I am not pointing towards a general audience here. I know people state their point of views because that is what this app is all about which is great but it won't help others if you simply copy other people's answer instead of having your own opinion.
Considering d freedom of speech it's okay to ask questions but one can check if sumone has already ask that stuff. As far as repeatative answer's are concern then looking at the positive side one can also get a number coming out of a survey the people chose, like and voted for... It can also make easier to make a decesion over majority of votes (answer's) about the place /stuff. Moreover, it's atleast better an individual is giving an output rather than hiding His /her name and being anonymous which gives not a good impression/difficult to trustworthy for the person asking for an opinion /question. I hope this suits everyone of us, no offences.
Agree with your point that the person should search for unique answer but the thing is if I have to answer 'Best Chole Bhature in CP, then the obvious answer will be 'Jain Chawal Wale' so everyone would suggest that place only because it is the best. So, why someone try to search a unique answer instead what they can do is to put the same answer in more representable manner like providing more specific details about the thing or place.
And if your opinion will be followed then there will be no more than 3-4 answers on a question i.e, people's engagement will be decreased.
This is my point of view. #NoOffence to your question.
