I wish I could copy a community (or its content in whole)

I wish I could copy a community (or its content in whole) - and when copied, it is named "Copy of <original name>" unless I edit the name before it is saved the first time. 

Maybe also include a choice on whether to copy comments and attachments.

    Copying a community, with structure and contents, like with an Activity (template) would allow for the creation of a template community that could be quickly used to put in place the structure, documentation, important links, and so on for any sort of repeating use.  For example, I have a template for a community I create for each new client I work with.  In the template are a set of useful bookmarks, and template wiki pages for the Customer Success Plan, with common information (instructions, guidance, explanations) filled in.  At present I use it as a model, but I must manually copy all the data over to a new community when I start to work with a new customer.  Being able to truly copy the whole community into a new one would save me a lot of time.

    I fully support this idea. There are various use cases. Think about seminars, training courses etc.. Always the same structure and content, but different members...
