We semi-recently decided that chains of duplicates are bad, and we want to make "duplicate hubs" instead of chains. I assume this applies to both main and meta, because there's no obvious reason to treat them differently, and the top-voted answer points to an example from MSE, the meta to our meta.
Currently, we have this chain of duplicates:
- Are all utopias and dystopias on-topic?
- How much dystopia is needed to be on-topic?
- Are works that aren't SF per se, but have occasional SFnal elements on-topic? (e.g. spy movies)
(1) is a dupe of (2), which is a dupe of (3). (3) contains no mention whatsoever of utopias and dystopias, in either the question or the answers, and (2) has no answers at all. We can't use (2) as a hub without any answers, and making (1) a dupe of (3) seems a bit... wrong. (1) is all about whether we can treat 'topias as "SF per se" in the first place, and has nothing to do with "occasional elements." How should this problem be resolved (leave as chain, make (1) the hub for (2), do something else)?
