    How do you deal with duplicate topics? Do you lock the duplicate or do you merge the duplicate with the original?







    I usually lock them myself but I do also ocassionally merge topics.

    I only merge them if there is a need for it, if not I inform the person that their topic has been moved to the dump bin as it was a duplicate and a link to the thread that was already there.

    I will either delete, merge topics or just moved to trash for keeping the topic count. But mostly will merge the topics as they are the same one.

    I just merge them. No use wasting a topic by deleting them.
