The two questions below appear (to me) to duplicate each other, and provide conflicting answers:
- What is the proper way of dealing with a question that is a duplicate with a question on another SE site? (This answer is older by a couple years, and much less popular.)
- What to do with cross-site duplicates? (This answer is newer, more popular, seems to conflict with the first answer, and was never considered a duplicate.)
The conflict I perceive, which may or may not be correct, is that the first seems to say there is no such thing as cross-site duplicates, while the second suggests that there is... and that the way to deal with it is to first migrate the post and then mark it as duplicate (or leave them on both sites, if they are appropriate to both sites). This has left me confused.
Do these two questions duplicate each other, and conflict as it has appeared to me? If so, what is the proper way of dealing with that?
(I did not want to go into either of two well-established questions and attempt to flag one as a duplicate. I didn't think that such a flag would be well-received.)
