The quick answer is that we've already informed other moderators of the checklist for migration to Code Review, and one of the items is to check for duplicate items. However, that doesn't address the underlying problems: Users seem to be confused about which site to post to. I suspect that other Stack Exchange communities face a similar problem with ...

In my opinion, no. A key element of asking for a code review is asking "what is most wrong about this code?". If reviewers tend to focus on a specific aspect, it likely means that this aspect stands out more than the rest. Style does tend to do this simply due to its nature, but accepting the style criticisms, correcting where deemed justified, and then ...

Firstly, do the same issues with the code exist between the various quick-sort implementations? There are a few issues which do show up repeatedly, for example: Not refactoring the swap logic into a function (C++) failing to use std::swap Failing to use the programming language stack But at the same time, each implementation has it own set of distinct ...

Yeah, the comment "your question is a duplicate so we closed it, please ask again" doesn't make any sense in its current form. However, let's keep in mind that the situation is quite hypothetical, because as @rolfl said it too, legitimate duplicates are extremely rare on Code Review, and I don't think that's going to change in the foreseeable future. That ...

I can't help but think that some of these migration/duplicates are because there's no easy way to migrate so users are trying to be helpful and suggest that the question would be more appropriate over here... so the author cross posts. If you look at the close options for "belongs on another network", you'll see that Code Review is not one of the sites you'...

It is a change across the stack-exchange network Changes to "close as duplicate" The rule doesn't make sense here, but we can't do much about it.

Really, this question is redundant. Code Review should have no duplicates (I wonder how many it actually has?). Code Review is very strict on what is defined as a duplicate. To qualify, the code is essentially identical on each question - this is rare, indeed. Now, why does this make this meta question redundant? Because if there really are duplicates, ...
