Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

I answer a lot of questions on a particular topic, but that topic has relatively low views. A question came up today that has an exact duplicate that I have highlighted as such. However, due to the low view count on the topic, it is unlikely to ever get closed.

Should I flag this to moderators to help get it closed, or should I just ignore it and let it live on?

You should flag it as Doesn't Belong here -> Exact Duplicate of and paste the URL.

That'll raise a flag which will be visible to Moderators & 10k+ users who, if they agree, can vote to close it as well.

You should stop worrying and love dupes. I wouldn't bother unless they are exact exact duplicates. Not "they're kinda the same" or "they appear to be somewhat related" but "this idiot just reposted that question" kind of dupes.

yep, it is an exact duplicate, so I will do as @sathya says – Codemwnci Dec 28 '11 at 13:06
