It would be great if we could fold duplicate questions together so that we would only see one of them in searches, etc..
Update: Bug filed as fdo#52490
Update 2: We all like @Pedro's answer, but the askbot software doesn't implement that functionality yet. For now, let's just put a comment directly underneath the question that looks like this:
If 'duplicate' is a lot to type, just use 'dupe' :-) If you have gained enough karma to tag questions, please tag the q with:
That will let the mods know that the question should be closed. Thanks!
Currently it is only possible to close a question with the information "Duplicate question". But there is no possibility to indicate (or link to) of which question it is a duplicate of. It would be nice to have a system similar to Bugzilla where all duplicate questions are clearly marked as duplicates with a link to the only open question.

As someone who recently posted one, a more responsive topic 'search' might also help.
I ran such a search before posting (about downloading only a single LO app), but did not get the hits that were cited when the topic was closed due to duplication.
Searches based solely on keywords can be tricky. A dedicated database of 'often duplicated' questions might be maintained, arranged alphabetically according to topic.
