How is Language Agnostic Code Golf! a dupe of Which language is shortest?? Sure the general ideas are the same, but the methodologies are totally different. It's a dupe because both questions involve adding up scores based on language, huh? The technical differences between the challenges are so multitudinous, I'm not sure why someone who read both would say mine is a dupe. Here are some differences:
- Original question: Find 50 latest challenges with 20 or more answers.
My question: Find 40 questions that have answers in both inputted languages.
- Original question: Add up all the scores on all the questions. Get the averages. Return the 20 most common languages.
My question: Add up the best scores for each question. Return the ratio of the first language's total to the second languages'.
Sure they're similar, but the techniques/queries used are different. If the techniques are different aren't they different? If there are two questions that say "Calculate Pi" but require different techniques, is one a dupe of the other?
My other argument is that stack-exchange-api is a unique tag with not many questions. I don't think there is all that much variety in how that tag operates.
