In order to reduce repetitive questions, or perhaps having easy answers, should GAG have stickied questions or advice articles on the front page? Or maybe like an "FAQ"-type of article for each subject?
I know there's a (usually poor) common questions reference when you post a question, but would simply having stickied ones be better? Would it help or hurt the site? What would the benefits be? The cons? What are your thoughts? Do you regulars enjoy reading the same question asked differently 20 times a week?

After you hit submit, or before you even start typing a question, whichever functions best, have a MUST-READ page that has like the 10, 20 most common and generic questions or summaries of those questions. And each question must be confirmed read.

I've been thinking the same thing for years. That some of the more repetitive questions on this site should just be stickied. Like for example, if a girl asks for the millionth time whether guys prefer bigger girls or smaller girls, or if boobs really matter, and all that... Or say a guy asking the same ol' "big penis" questions as usual. Whatever the question is, if It's been asked before, It's then compiled to a pile. A merged topic. Points taken away, and the subject is merged. I know I've seen a question merged before, on this site. I know it's possible. It should be done more.
But I don't think stickied is quite right either. I mean I think perhaps there should be a section for endless discussions about the same old crap. Stuff like that. Also, I think there should be a more blunt way of pointing out to people when their question has been asked thousands of times before. Something that not only removes or merges their question, but also send them an automated email and PM (yes, both) with explanations explicitly telling them why this happened, and an attached streaming video telling them how to work a goddamned search engine.
Seriously, I've been on this site so long, I am sick to death of people asking all the stupid questions over and over again, when these questions are simple, straightforward, to the point, and have been both asked and answered uncounted numbers of times. Or those questions that plainly have no right answer, but keep getting asked anyway, with the same results. I'm sick of it. Sick of everyone who posts these questions. I want them to learn how to use a goddamned motherfucking search engine!
(huff.. huff... huff...)
So yeah. I pretty much side with you on this one, CheeseSteak7.6
