When browsing Area51, I came across a proposal which was an exact duplicate of another proposal. (this and this).

When I went to flag it, I saw there was no option for flagging as a duplicate.

Flagging a proposal on Area51

Shouldn't this feature be added and if not why is that feature not there?

You can still flag it as a duplicate - just type in a message in that textbox. :)

We aren't making any serious code changes to Area 51 at this point as we work on our next generation proposal system.
