I was trying to share a link to the question How can I plot this Cartesian Equation in Geometry Nodes? that was closed and marked as duplicate.
I believe the question is not a duplicate, so I wanted to share it with a friend through Facebook Messenger. It works fine and directs you to that exact question when you click the link from a desktop computer.
But when you click the link from a mobile device, it directs you to the linked answer. It looks like it functions as designed granting that the question is truly and unmistakably a duplicate question. If it truly was a product of design then it is inconsistent because the redirect post function on mobile and desktop computer do not behave the same way.
So based on this inconsistency I believe that this might actually be a bug. I want to share exactly the aforementioned link to a friend who is on mobile and not the linked answer. Is there a workaround to this? Or should I report this as a bug and where?
It might be helpful to add a checkbox in the popup that appears when clicking the Share link button. This "redirect" checkbox will be ticked by default so a user (who doesn't know about
?noredirect=1) can untick it if they wish to share the exact thread and then they click copy link. Is there a chance this can be implemented?
And another issue is that sometimes I get a notice that I've been redirected and sometimes I don't (both cases as not logged in). In times it did give me notice, it was not helpful in my case because it does not give me an option to go to the link before it got redirected.
Here a screenshot of no notice that I got redirected even though I should have been notified since I was not logged in:
