Reason: duplicate

Just like Peter (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/reason-duplicate), I have a submission labeled 'Needs Attention' stating "The item you have submitted is exactly the same as a submission that you
have already entered, which is still pending review by our staff." I never entered this submission twice, so this message is wrong.
Can a staffer take a look please? This is the submission number: 200124-201547-217000
(also, am I really the only one who submitted this merge?)

It's been happening to me as well.

Automatic duplication of posts, AND I can't delete the duplicate.

Heck, this post might duplicate, lol.

That happens to me as well, every now and again. However, I don't see why you bring it up, because it doesn't have anything to do with my original post.

I apologise for not recognising that our issues were distinct.

Unlike yourself, I do not suffer from OCD & autism, and don't spend more than a few minutes a week perusing these forums.

Hi Marco,

Looking at your submission 200124-201547-217000

I can see it was submitted on the 24th?

We had a merge request for it on the 21st which is why yours was rejected as a duplicate!

I hope this helps!

But the message that Marco quotes refers to a "submission that you have already entered." So maybe you need to edit that text.

Yeah, the message is terrible but I've had this happen for a while now and as long as I see the change on the page, I haven't really worried about.

Exactly.
