Last August, we had a discussion about a new approach to duplicate questions, and it was decided that we would have a trial period that would go from then until January of 2017 and afterwards we would have a discussion on how it played out. It is now into May of 2017 and unless I completely missed it, we haven't had a discussion about the results. The only results I have seen is this answer that documented a few of the questions that may have been affected by this change in policy.
Can we get some data on the impact of this change, because it seems to either have not had much of an impact as there hasn't been any real discussion about it. Also what does it mean, if nothing really changed with the new policy? Was it ineffective, or did we just do a bad job testing the new policy?
