As a contributor to an open source project, I also answer questions on the project's mailing list. Although the list archive is available in the web, there are questions that are asked more than once. As I'm not keen on repeating myself, I try to respond to these questions in a way that make it unlikely that the question will be asked another time. So if the questions indicate a gap in documentation, I update the project's wiki page. However there is also a type of questions which are valid questions but which are too specific to be included in the documentation. So...
I would like to be able to ask questions on stackoverflow that are frequently asked elsewhere. These forwarded questions would be clearly marked to make it obvious that they are not "my own questions", i.e. things I am or have been asking myself. I'd reword the original question to make it as useful as possible.
I would be held responsible for these questions e.g. get reputation deducted if they are voted down. I don't need to gain reputation from the forwarded question, but I want to gain reputation for votes on answers to forwarded questions. The self-learner badge should obviously not be awarded on forwarded questions.
With this feature implemented, I am expecting that I would only have forward questions for a limited period of time. With a critical mass of good questions, I expect that stackoverflow would quickly become the primary place for Q&A for our community.
