I recently saw in a post

The question was not closed yet.

So it looks like a new feature on my question.

When does that duplicate suggestion appears? Does it appear on the first close vote cast?

Then why post the above autocomment

  • Problem demonstrated right here. :) – Mysticial Feb 6 '13 at 5:52
  • @Mysticial my main question is that why that possible duplicate of bla message ? – NullPoiиteя Feb 6 '13 at 5:53
  • It isn't really a dupe. It appears as soon as the first close-vote is cast. But I'm just highlighting the problem described in the other question. – Mysticial Feb 6 '13 at 5:55
  • And now I've demonstrated the problems with that by blindly voting to agree with the first vote. – Lightness Races in Orbit Feb 6 '13 at 6:07
  • Don't delete it. I'm using it as a demonstration of the problem. I've linked it from the other one. – Mysticial Feb 6 '13 at 6:11
  • @Mysticial ok sire will keep it .. – NullPoiиteя Feb 6 '13 at 6:12

    Interesting, the moment I cast my first reopen vote on it the duplicate box disappears again – Yi Jiang Feb 6 '13 at 7:42
  • @TimYiJiang that is more annoying .. to remove banner in just one ro vote ... – NullPoiиteя Feb 6 '13 at 8:33

    @Tim: now this is really annoying, this is closed as duplicate and there is no link to the duplicate… – Stéphane Gimenez Feb 6 '13 at 11:52
  • And the new possible duplicate box isn't part of the revision history anymore, either. New features, bumpy road and all that. – fbueckert Feb 6 '13 at 16:38
