Android as an operating system dates back to 2008, and the first viable Android version (arguably), Gingerbread, was out circa 2011, 6 years earlier. Android.SE itself also has a ~7-year history.
During the course, many questions on meaningful topics have been asked, some could even be considered some sort of "FAQ", as the issue persists across many Android versions, and people outside SE are constantly flowing in (via search) looking for a solution. However, as Android version progresses rapidly and brings a lot of changes with each version, the solution proposed back then might not be as elegant or effective by "modern" standards. This part of the dilemma had been discussed here.
While I was reviewing close votes recently, I start to notice some duplicate votes, referencing such old questions as its duplicate "target", but the way I see it, the answers there are too outdated or general to be of reference value. Occasionally, there are also factors in the dupe "suspect" that's a result of the advancing of Android or the software in question, and not part of the dupe "target". Marking as dupe in this way won't help the author of the dupe "suspect" get much clue, and his question will probably get closed before it attracts careful inspection from knowledgeable people.
I personally feel that, after a certain time threshold, we should either direct our effort to updating such old questions before we assign them as dupe "targets", or when we can't, we should not even check the mark in the first place, but instead leave them as a platform for up-to-date answers to grow on.
What's the meta's opinion on this?
