Background: Over at Arqade, I've noticed an increasing number of questions about Clash Of Clans asking how to recover their lost account. These questions are not closed as duplicates since each case is slightly different based on the user's platform etc. I often answer these questions with the exact same answer. I wish to fix this problem by creating a canonical question on this topic, and answering it myself. However, since the act of making canonical questions applies across the entire the whole network, I decided to ask this question here.
I wish to create a canonical question and answer for a frequently-asked question, as the current questions and answers are highly specific to each case.
I created the question, answered it, and marked the answer as community wiki. But how do I let everyone know that this post is intended to be canonical, and all past and future questions on this topic should be closed as duplicates?
a) Post a comment stating this
b) Create a meta discussion and link it to the question
c) Flag all other duplicate questions to show my intent
d) Do all of the above
e) Different order? Something else?
