This question already has an answer here:

I marked an answer as duplicate. How is it possible that another user also marked that answer as duplicate? Shouldn't the question be closed on first marking of duplicate?

enter image description here

How is possible that two users mark same question as duplicate? Shouldn't the question be closed on first marking of duplicate?

The other user has 4k reputation (as of today) and I guess minimum 3k is required to mark and answer as duplicate.

Am I correct or not?
