I was testing an answer locally on someone else's post recently, only for it to be marked (in error) as duplicate.
Whilst I can see why the duplicator (for want of a better word) did what they did; it did basically address one issue the OP was having, but IMO not the main issue.
I wanted to remove the duplicate tag, but there isn't a clear answer of how to do this.
I thought of using
@ on one of the duplicator's posts, and letting them know before removing the comment, but thought that was an odd way to do it.
I figured flagging it would get a moderator to remove it, but it got declined as a request
declined - flags should only be used to make moderators aware of content that requires their intervention.
I read this, but this feels like it's what the OP should have done, not a random answerer.
How should I have done this?
