I've recently browsed some questions that all refer to each other (i.e., the first comment is "duplicate of" or "similar to" [some other question]). I've found browsing through these different Q&As to be confusing and tedious.
Is there a better way to sort these questions so that the best answer comes to the top of all 3 in some way? The biggest advantage to stackoverflow, as I see it, is that when a question is answered, the question is immediately followed by the 'best' answer.
My instinct is to post a new question summarizing or simplifying the other questions. Is this acceptable? Is there a better way to go about it?
Example: These 3 are related but not quite the same, though each has components that inform the others...
- Are there any 'gotchas' with this Python pattern?
- Python: Recursively access dict via attributes as well as index access?
- Accessing dict keys like an attribute in Python?
Would it be appropriate to ask a question like: "What is the best implementation of an 'attribute dictionary'?" and include links to / a summary of the other examples?
(the question I'm asking is not Proposed better way of handling duplicates, ironically)
