Duplicate feature requests and bug reports

Why was the feature request/bug report locked saying it was a duplicate?

If you find a bug report or feature request duplicates, please find the newer topic and flag it for moderator attention saying it’s a dupe and linking to the original. For example:

Dupe of ask.replit.com/t/

If you made a topic and it was marked as a duplicate you are not in trouble unless you post a lot of duplicates.

If it is not a duplicate you can do 2 things.

  1. Flag it as something else explaining that it’s not a dupe and why it’s not a dupe.
  2. If you can’t flag your own post make a topic in #general and tag it with #forum-feedback asking why t was closed as a dupe.
