Recently I saw a question which had already been asked and is therefore a duplication. I will refer to these posts as new (the one posted most recent) and original post.
However, the original post had no answers 'marked as answer'.
Should this still be marked as a duplication.
The complication comes from when the original post was created - I understand that not all of those who post a question mark as an answer but if close a post as a duplicate then the likely hood of people seeing the original post is low (due to it's age) and an answer is less likely (assuming the original didn't have an answer).
Any thoughts on what should be done here?
