I have committed on using Stack Overflow (in German), and I think there will be some "reputation chasers", who will take the most popular questions from the English stack overflow, translate them (may be with a little reformatting to make it less obvious) an just post them. This has the good side of good questions being posted, and the information will be available to german speakers, and the bad side of potentially creating spam, because of the "reputation chase".
So my questions:
- Is this behavior welcomed?
- What do you think of a linking option, that appears some what like the
Possible duplicatein many sites, to have a link like it
The English versions here. Would that be helpful?
