Description

This is a userscript that lets you mark questions as commonly used duplicate targets, and replaces the default question search in the close dialog with one that searches through your marked duplicate targets.

A new button is added below the "favorite" button:

Once a question has been added to your collection, you can associate keywords with that question. These keywords are intended to make the question easier to find.

From that point on, you'll be able to find the marked question in the close dialog: enter image description here

Lastly, the script also adds a new tab to your profile page where you can manage your collection of duplicate targets: enter image description here

    wow! excellent userscript! if there already are some collections it would be nice with some links to them. – Petter Friberg Oct 11 at 14:55
  • @PetterFriberg FWIW, here's my personal collection of python duplicates so far. – Aran-Fey Oct 11 at 15:34
  • Great work! May I suggest you move the source code off gist and into a repo, so that you can use the issues and pull request features of github. Using StackApps as an issue tracker will not be very fun. – wim Oct 12 at 17:48
  • @wim I'm sure there won't be enough issues to warrant moving the project to a repo... Just kidding. Repo created and post updated. – Aran-Fey Oct 12 at 18:21

    @AndrasDeak The script should now work in GreaseMonkey. If any GreaseMonkey users still have problems, please report them here. Thanks! – Aran-Fey Oct 13 at 19:30
  • Awesome, thank you, can confirm it works now :) – Andras Deak Oct 13 at 20:51

Not sure which posts you should setup with this script? I made a quick SEDE query to help you find common duplicate target posts for your tag of choice.

https://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/revision/909952/1132398/most-common-duplicate-targets-for-a-tag

TopItems it the max items you want back. Probably good to leave this less than 50.
TargetTag is the display name of the tag you want duplicate target posts to contain. For example, c# (rather than the URL encoded version).

The results are the most common duplicate targets for that tag, ordered by how often they are linked, descending order.
