  • If it makes a difference I voted to close the question in the example before the other one was closed. – FDinoff Jul 30 '13 at 0:29
  • Technically it doesn't have a close vote, it has a flag. It still needs 5 votes. – Dukeling Jul 30 '13 at 0:37
  • I often see a question that is closed as a duplicate of another question, which is also closed (and sometimes that one has been closed as a duplicate of yet another one that is also closed). I'm not sure it really matters if this is cyclic or not; the main problem is that it takes the user many more clicks to find the real answer. I wish we could do a better job of merging questions. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 30 '13 at 0:38

    In my opinion, the +2 one with a +8 answer should've been closed a duplicate of the +50 one with a +34 answer (and others) (as in the other way around), regardless of age. – Dukeling Jul 30 '13 at 0:40
  • @apaul34208, is it possible to make it uncompleted then? – RiaD Jul 30 '13 at 1:14
  • I've cast a vote on A for being a duplicate of B ;) – Cole Johnson Jul 30 '13 at 1:15
  • @Dukeling Done. – animuson Jul 30 '13 at 1:23
