I'm not sure if I asked this before, so I checked and didn't see anything.
I like to manually check all answers to my questions of duplicate content. Since I don't immediately check answers as I receive them (or the notifications), I think this would be much easier if I had a checkbox or something by each answer that I could check once I've made sure the answer is not dupe content.
Additionally, it would be nice to be able to see a quick index of all answers I've not checked for use when I'm in, well, a checking mood.
I think this would be important since I get a LOT of dupe content answers from hubbers. Not just those low hubscore hubbers that seem to seldom pop in, but also high hubscore hubbers that spend a large amount of time on the site. It's really surprising... the number of dupe answers!
Edit: Heck, this feature would be great for hubs, too, so I know which hubs I've not checked (in a while) to see if they've been copied on other sites.
I just asked several questions today and ALL of the answers I've received so far are duplicate content.
Since hubbers refuse to take the message "Don't bloody use content from other places as your answer" into regard, I would like a nice way (aside from notifications because that doesn't really work for this) to be able to mod answers... since I literally have to check EVERY SINGLE ONE for duplicate content.
Sorry for venting, it's just frustrating. I flag some people who do post dupe answers, but it's getting to be a frequent event.
Melbel, I'm sorry for your frustration, and I apologize for taking so long to respond as I was away on vacation.
Thanks for making the suggestion (and for being SO diligent with checking answers!). I'll keep this suggestion in the queue of things to consider when we do additional work on Q&A.

I know this might seem like beating a dead horse, but...A lot of hubbers, even hubbers who have really written fab hubs and contribute a great deal of inspiration in the forums have been copying answers from other answer sites and using them as their own in the answer section in HubPages.I can...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

I found out this morning that this site had stolen at least 2 of my hubs. The more I looked, the more I noticed that it appears every single post on the site is a stolen hub, completely copied in most cases (including the authors' names and copyright notes, ironically). I see lots of names of...

After reading every post, every article, etc... on the subject matter I thought I'd start a post with arguments against Amazon being the source of the free fall in traffic that many of us experienced last week as I don't believe it is the problem. (I can't say 100% for sure).1.) Many hubbers which...

HubPages policies have changed since I first signed up years ago when "Answers" was called "Requests" and even when duplicate content Hubs were allowed. I've pretty much tried to keep up, but a question about the "Answers" section occurred to me not long ago when...
