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

I'm new and asked my first question on stackoverflow today. I got a error in my browser when I posted the question, so thought the question wasn't posted. I posted it again (after the 20 minute timeout) and then I realized it was posted twice. Can I merge the two questions? I already have answers on both.

You can't merge them, moderators can. Wait here till a mod arrives or flag one of your questions for moderation attention and explain your issue. – Ladybug Killer Apr 9 '10 at 12:13
I went ahead and merged them together for you. Thanks for pointing it out. @Ladybug is right though, in the future you can just flag the duplicate for moderator attention and provide a link to the original. – Bill the Lizard Apr 9 '10 at 12:22
+1 for the effort you took to report it here. – BalusC Apr 9 '10 at 12:36
Fixed. Wow, I'm really impressed – Marius Apr 9 '10 at 12:59
Just curious, what was the error message you received? I see duplicate posts from new users every now and then, so I'm just wondering if there might be some deeper problem that frequent users don't see... – Kip Apr 9 '10 at 14:24

This is a status-completed question that is still listed as [unanswered] because it was dealt with in the question's comments. Does it make sense for someone to just accept this answer (or someone else's), to clear it from the unanswered list?
