Merge new topics to existing
I wanted to request the feature to merge new posts into existing topics. The ability to merge a reply to any other topic already exists, but there doesn't appear to be a way to move a parent topic into an existing topic.
The reason I ask for this feature is that we get quite a few duplicate feature requests, which leads to me closing the duplicate posts and asking people to post in the other. It'd be convenient for our members, as well as anyone looking into a feature request, to have all the posts in one place.
I wanted to follow up on this idea of merging new topics into existing topics. It would be great for when we have a duplicate request that receives some votes, to help consolidate it. Or at least make it possible to add a vote on behalf of a user if a post as been marked as a duplicate, though I guess this could be a slippery slope in some aspects.
