Duplicate target erroneously rejected although it has upvoted/accepted answers

I'm getting this information since lately:

This question does not have an upvoted or accepted answer

when i try to close a duplicate question.

This is the original: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14644054/making-checkbox-field-of-gridview-editable

This is what i've tried to close: Changing the state of check box in grid view

So OP didn't know that he can edit his question instead of asking a new.

Why can't i vote-to-close the duplicate question anymore? What is best practice in this case?

  • The original question has been removed by the asker. Could this be the reason for the message? Feb 1, 2013 at 11:46
  • No, it was deleted 2 hours ago, but the message came so long as the question i wanted to link as duplicate has no upvoted answers. But you're right, it was deleted from OP since his new question has an accepted answer now. Feb 1, 2013 at 14:20

    @ToonKrijthe: why should this be closed as duplicate although it is the oldest? Funny question considering this issue. Feb 2, 2013 at 1:24
