The linked question, however, had no answer. I understand the basic idea that the first question asked remains and mine is a duplicate. However, I see a few problems:
- How do people know which question to answer? Yes, I know that they can't answer mine because it's "closed". But, then again, no one answered the 1st question either.
- When people do answer the original (1st) question, I get no notification of that fact, whereas, if my question stayed, of course, I would know about the answers.
So, is there a good, "fair" solution to this scenario? Maybe there's a way to suggest that in such a scenario where there was no answer and my question duplicates, a message suggestion placing a bounty on the 1st question would raise awareness?
