Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Some questions are repeatedly asked time and again and closed as dupes. I just found the nth "free stock market data" question.

It would be quite nice to have a "top 100 closed as dupe questions" page, ranked by # of questions that are closed as dupe and linked to the original question.

I bet that stock market question will be near the top. :-)

I think, for the purpose of documenting common questions, the tag wiki should be the tool. The only problem is that this feature is so obscure not many people uses it. – Yi Jiang Aug 21 '10 at 6:54
@Yi Jiang: Obscurity is a question of marketing - links to a FAQ could be splattered everywhere. @Jon: I'm primarily interested in the "top X" questions, because by definition those are the most frequently duped questions. Also, this wouldn't have to be a "10K tool", this could be an auto-generated page. – Paul Nathan Aug 23 '10 at 18:00
Needs to be @YiJiang for it to work, Paul. – Grace Note Aug 23 '10 at 18:03
