Q&A for work
Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search.
Very often on SO (and other 'exchanges), an question of mine is marked as a duplicate.
How can I mark that the question I duplicated answers my question? Leaving a comment seems like the best way to do this, but comments aren't forever.
In that case you don't need to; it's implied by it staying as a duplicate.
If you don't feel it is a duplicate then you would edit your question clarifying why.
