I have two questions, posted by kalina. Question 1, and Question 2.

Though the questions have different titles, they both specifically ask for something that can restrict weapons or limit weapons. Are these two questions then considered the same?

I answered Question 2, using a mod I found at AlliedModders. My answer for Question 2 however, also addresses Question 1, and in my opinion, the two are completely identical.

Are they?

I'd say they are not duplicates.

While the common theme of weapon restrictions is present in both questions, the former is more about placing round limits on said restrictions while the latter is asking how to impose the restrictions altogether.

Could they have existed comfortably as one question? Probably, but that does not mean we have to forcefully combine two distinct issues.

  • So is it perfectly okay for me to copy my original answer verbatim and post it on the other question?

    @Retrosaur If the same answer applies, sure. There is nothing wrong with having one answer apply to two questions.

We don't dupe posts based on the answers. The mod you linked to can probably be used to solve both questions, but that doesn't change the fact that what is being asked in one of them is in no way related to what is being asked in the other.

  • I might have minced my words. @gnomeslice I meant the questions are actually extremely similar in nature. If I were to ask a question, saying "how can I make CSGo rounds Grenades only", would that question be considered similar to kalina's other questions due to the fact that it pertains to weapon restrictions?

  • 'Weapons Restrictions' is a really vague topic; both of those deal with it, yes, but that's like saying that two people are duplicates because they both have green eyes. Or something.

  • They both deal with the same problem, restricting certain weapons during gameplay (Question 1 deals with Knives only, Question 2 deals with no AWPs).

  • I still think the use cases are different enough that they should be kept separate.

  • By 'in no way related' I actually meant 'related'.
