What do you mean by add a rule? An optional field when you post to input the year? Or do you mean have a repost count with link to past duplicates?

Doesn't have to be an actual field, can just be a guideline for how you should post titles. Speaking of guidelines, maybe that's worth adding as well? Something like Hackernews: https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html - not advocating for these particular rules, just guidelines in general.

The year guideline would help when someone posts an older link, for example I think this submission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSUVRj8iznU with the title "Taproot, and Schnorr, and SIGHASH_NOINPUT, oh my!" would be better titled "Taproot, and Schnorr, and SIGHASH_NOINPUT, oh my! (2018)" since it's from 2018.

I see. Hmmmm I wonder if I can get this data from metatags from most pages and save the user having to type it. I'll add this to GH.

@abetusk recommended guidelines already https://github.com/stackernews/stacker.news/issues/47 so we're already tracking that.
