  • I don't see the issue. It are two dialogs, what should be changed according to you? – Patrick Hofman Jun 8 '17 at 12:28
  • @PatrickHofman To repro, instead of close, choose flag. Then you can see a dupe option there. Choose should be closed and it repeats there – Optimus Prime Jun 8 '17 at 12:29
  • Because the first is the flag dialog and you can click through to the close dialog. Both have the duplicate option. – Patrick Hofman Jun 8 '17 at 12:30
  • yes. I think it is a bug because both points to same option (3rd image). So one option is necessary. – Optimus Prime Jun 8 '17 at 12:31
  • the flag->dupe also points to flag->close->dupe – Optimus Prime Jun 8 '17 at 12:32
  • Because we want to encourage to flag as duplicate. – Patrick Hofman Jun 8 '17 at 12:32
  • agreed. but I would like to know is this is the real purpose behind it. Usually if someone achieve the CV privilege, then the Flag dupe option should be removed. right ? – Optimus Prime Jun 8 '17 at 12:35
  • You could remove all options that lead to closure, but then users acquiring the privilege might be too used to go to the flag dialog that they don't see the close option. – Patrick Hofman Jun 8 '17 at 12:38
  • I think I should make it clear. I mean the dupe option in the first image should be removed. because it will not treated as a flag when casted by CV privilege user. it will be treated as a CV. So, the dupe option should appear in the Close option – Optimus Prime Jun 8 '17 at 12:42
