I've asked a question, under this link: Finding fastest path at additional condition .

It has been closed (even though I've been up-voted 5 times and the question has been verified by a 12k rep stackoverflow member). Reason of closing my question is that it is a duplicate, but it isnt. There's a very similar question but it has not been solved and it has been asked like 3 years ago.

Here's the comments from my question:

It is an exact duplicate, but the original question has no solution - only a statement that a solutions exist elsewhere (and that 815 people at SPOJ have found one). – lserni Jan 6 at 18:30

It is not an exact duplicate -- the other question makes no mention at all of even the possibility that there could be two or more paths between a pair of nodes, nor the extra condition attached to hem.

Could I get my question reopened somehow? I want to set it for a bounty with a hope of getting answered. I've been waiting for that and out of nowhere, It got closed.

    It should be noted that up-votes should have no bearing on whether a question is a duplicate or not.

    Note, upvotes don't indicate whether or not a question is on topic, a good question, or not a duplicate. The two concepts are completely unrelated. Also, reputation (or moderator diamond) is not an indicator that every moderation decision made by these users is going to be correct. You shouldn't correlate those things together.

I don't think it's an exact duplicate, and there's not much help on the linked question anyway.

I reopened it.
