This question already has an answer here:
These two questions have a lot of upvotes and their answers also carry a lot of votes. Now, I decided to flag one of them as a duplicate of the other.
How do I decide which of the questions is a duplicate of the other? They are both from 2009. But one of the questions was asked in January while the other question was asked in May.
Do I, as a user when flagging duplicates:
- Mark the newest question as a duplicate of the oldest?
- Mark the question with the least votes as a duplicate?
- Mark the question with the lowest number of upvotes on the accepted answer?
- Mark the question with least amount of views as a duplicate?
In the end I decided to flag the newer question as a duplicate of the older question. Regardless of votes.
