Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This post was closed because being a duplicate, however, only one of the two links in the box is correct.

Is there a way we can remove the other link?

Is it not possible to edit it out? – murgatroid99 May 17 '12 at 19:03
The Community edit is an edit like any else; it can be modified at will. – Dennis May 17 '12 at 19:03
@murgatroid99 wow, actually it is, I didn't know – ajax333221 May 17 '12 at 19:03

Yes, you can. Automatic edits inserted by the community user don't lock a post from further manual edits.

Just take care to preserve the formatting; use the Markdown that's already there as a reference.

Please also do not edit these out (or add new ones in) on a whim; discuss in the comments which questions are appropriate as duplicates and which are not. If in doubt, flag for moderator attention and we'll help decide if the edits are warranted.

Should be noted that normally these should not be edited out. When I first read this question and your answer I thought you were giving everybody the green light to modify duplicate links at will. – slhck May 17 '12 at 19:22
@slhck: I missed that; added a warning to my answer. – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 17 '12 at 19:26
