Allow same user to add multiple links as possible duplicates

When seeing a dupe question, I sometimes come up with more than one duplicate to close it with. In other cases, I hastily vote to close as "Not a real question" or "Not constructive" before realizing I could just look up a dupe instead.

In both of these cases, I can no longer suggest a duplicate. That's by design because I can't cast a second vote - makes sense, of course. However, if I could suggest additional dupes without them actually casting another vote,

  • the "possible duplicate of" comment would be auto-generated for me
  • the dupe I identified will show up in the closing dialog for other users who still have their vote
  • Hmm, although I guess that's not as applicable to your second case. In that case though, I'm a bit wary of letting people "change" their vote, even if that's not technically how it'd work. – Tim Stone Jan 22 '13 at 20:05
  • @Tim oh, and I had even upvoted that one. Heh. I guess it's pretty much a dupe for most intents and purposes... not sure – Pekka Jan 22 '13 at 20:07
