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

When entering an URL for a possible duplicate (when voting to close a question), if the current question's URL is [accidentally] entered, a message "no eligible question found at that address" (or somesuch) is displayed. A more specific message might be clearer. I confused myself with my clipboard and it took a few moments to find out what I'd done.

A bit of a micro-optimization, but probably a useful one.. I made the check a bit more verbose for this specific duplicate case.

Thanks. I don't think "making GUIs abide by POLC" is a micro-optimization, or even an optimization at all! – Lightness Races in Orbit Mar 23 '11 at 1:03
