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
    
    
@NarawaGames: those are not the same title. The titles are similar, but not identical. – John Saunders Jun 23 '15 at 2:35
    
They used to be. It was changed. – narawagames Jun 23 '15 at 2:36
    
@NarawaGames: I don't see that they were ever the same – John Saunders Jun 23 '15 at 2:45

Someone edited the title, and there's a little casual overlap.

Thahks. I did edit the title. I guess the user who pointed out the double URL had the previous URL still. – John Saunders Jul 14 '09 at 0:46

The last part of the URL is just for SEO (and human readability too, I guess). This is normal for SO-family sites.

Did the user change the url? Also, I think the last / represents a variable value that doesn't really determine the ultimate destination. Perhaps Jeff could tell us what exactly that segment is used for beyond Google-ranking.
