OK - so I ask a question and someone updates saying it's been answered already and it's marked as a duplicate when it's not and the post they refer to doesn't solve the problem at all. So now the questions doesn't get answered.

What are you supposed to do as I updated the question with revised information stating that the problem is still outstanding and different but now no one's helping. How do I get the duplicate removed?

  • Also, it's best to edit your question saying it isn't a dupe, that puts it into the reopen queue. Very few people (if anyone) will see your comment. I've voted to reopen for now.

Give us a link, and we will re-open the question if it really doesn't answer yours.

A bunch of people deciding it is a duplicate closes a question. Another bunch can come in and say it is not, and reopen it.


I found your question here.

The duplicate status is correct, in the sense the question is the same, but if the answer doesn't work, you have every right to request a re-open. I just cast my vote.
