I am flagging a question that is a duplicate of another. I get an error. "This question does not have an upvoted or accepted answer".

Duplicate: How do I filter out regions that are full? of original: Joining a game with an empty slot

Discussion: Is it ok to post duplicate questions as long as the duplicates do not have answers with upvotes. Apparently. This is a new game, so duplicates without answers will occur quickly.

Fixed for now. This isn't specific to Arqade, so I'd repost on Meta.SO – Raven Dreamer Mar 10 '13 at 23:47
@RavenDreamer If it's reposted on MSO, it'll just be duped to a dozen other discussions on the subject. I thought we'd had one here as well, but an overaggressive mod may have migrated it to MSO... – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 11 '13 at 0:37
@LessPop_MoreFizz I thought this was new. If it wasn't, then you're probably right. – Raven Dreamer Mar 11 '13 at 1:08
@RavenDreamer It's about a month and a half old. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 11 '13 at 4:26
@RavenDreamer If it's duped, hopefully there's an article with at least one answer ;) – McKay Mar 18 '13 at 20:28
the issue was that neither question had an answer. I just see the problem of many questions being asked about the same thing. Then no one having a clue about the answer and no way to mark any of them as duplicate. The first question being the original that should get the answer. Otherwise if a later question is answered, the original could be marked as duplicate. time for a coffee. – Valamas Mar 18 '13 at 21:02
This question suffered from the same problem: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/106132/… which resulted in an answer and later being closed. – Valamas Mar 20 '13 at 0:15
