I answered a question on Stack Overflow, but the question was repetitive (the same question was asked three times in total) and after my answer was accepted the question is closed because "This question is an exact duplicate of: ..."
So what is the right thing to do in similar cases:
- Copy the answer to the open question
- Copy the answer to all of the same questions (if they are not closed yet)
- Do nothing
I don't think that the third option is best because then I can't earn reputation from my answers, but if I post the same answer in repeated questions then will my answers also be considered as redundant?
