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. :-)

... desperately wanting to close this as a dupe for the sake of irony –  user27414 Aug 20 '10 at 22:34
    
I made a dupe related suggestion recently, coming from a different angle but partly similar: meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/61308/… –  Pëkka Aug 20 '10 at 22:36

After reading both requests, I think this could have potential as a 10k tool. I'm just not sure if it would be useful for such a huge site like Stack Overflow -- it would need to be a pretty long list. –  Jon Seigel Aug 20 '10 at 22:49

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
