Earlier today I launched a small experiment. At the top of some recipes you might see the text “This recipe is a copy of: recipe name” - this happens when the ingredients are the same in two recipes. The “original” is the oldest one.
An interesting side effect is that this means that some recipes, like Funfetti by Wayne, will say that it’s a copy of another one (Wayne uploaded it to ELR after). But in all it should give you a good indication.
I’ve toyed with the idea of hiding the actual duplicates and only leaving the original as public, but I’m not sure if I’m gonna do that. We’re talking about 5,500 duplicate public recipes.
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
