When posting my answer I check that it doesn't repeat others as required by our FAQ.
In current UI, this becomes difficult when question already has many answers.
I would want that questions with 10 or more answers (including deleted ones) have additional UI allowing me to review each of previous answers individually prior to posting my own.
In a sense, this is sort of an enforcement of an "Atwood's warning" that pops up when one attempts to answer questions with multiple answers:
Did you read through all the existing answers first to make sure your answer will be contributing something new?
Side note, personally I would prefer above to be there even earlier, at 5-7 answers; it is proposed at 10 because at this point it becomes way too cumbersome to check prior answers in regular UI.
Such a UI could be similar to one currently used in review queues (which is not surprising as what I want is basically kind of review). Features I would want to have there are:
- allowing me to traverse between answers (next/previous)
- showing me preview of my answer among others, as if it was already posted,
preferably with an option to submit an answer, enabled after I took a look at all other answers
- allowing me to return back to editing my answer (cancel review)
