Be Big! Don't type grumpy!

Spolsky, half paraphrased:

  • "Don't answer questions that have already been answered elsewhere."
  • Only close real duplicates
  • Edit questions to make more general
  • "Help us build a great library of canonical answers."

Heyer, paraphrased:

  • site scope overlap is ok, be jealous of your questions, improve them to best fit your site
  • don't try to migrate bad questions, just close them.
  • suggest other sites where they might get better answers
