[All Platforms] Tip for creating good playlists: Don't skip duplicates

Previously I had thought it was always best to select "skip duplicates" when adding music to large playlists. However, after experimenting with combining a bunch of my playlists for an outdoor party/hangout and NOT skipping the duplicates I discovered that the good songs 'scaled' nicely - such that if they were in many playlists - they were generally well liked songs and came up more frequently in my new megaplaylist. It would be nice if Spotify added some formal mechanism for scaling the probability of songs/playlists playing (or being able to check/uncheck which playlists you want active if you want to shuffle a variety), but until then I found not skipping duplicates to actually come in handy. Just some food for thought.
