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

When reviewing close votes in the new /review, the UI has a bit of an ambiguity regarding duplicates. More specifically:

Which is which?

I assume "Original" refers to the question being voted on for closure, as it is the default view when reviewing this situation. However, closing it as a duplicate of another question implies that the other question is "original", and the question in question is a duplicate.

Perhaps the tabs could be relabeled as "Possible duplicate" and "Duplicate of..."? (or perhaps something better, but I can't really think of anything off the top of my head just now)

Additionally, are there ever additional tabs (Duplicate 2 and so on?). What would that mean? – yoozer8 Aug 15 '12 at 16:11
It would mean that people have flagged/voted for more than one question as a possible duplicate. – Juhana Aug 15 '12 at 16:13
"Alleged duplicate"? – j08691 Aug 15 '12 at 16:13
Or relabel to "Question Daddy" or "Question Mommy" and the current question as "On the set of Maury" – random Aug 15 '12 at 16:14
It's no fun without the paternity test. – Dave Newton Aug 15 '12 at 16:21
