Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On MSO's sidebar right now there's a small list of frequently asked questions. The first and last one right now are both Recent feature changes to Stack Exchange. This is likely to be a bug.

Speculation: The question appears twice because it is tagged and voted highly, and , which pins questions to the sidebar.

Your speculation was correct, it's a simple fetch of questions trying to get 10, if that fails it then gets 10-n questions.

In the next build it won't do this so blindly, you shouldn't see dupes anymore.
