I voted to close the following question as a duplicate: https://english.stackexchange.com/q/349088/142322.

The question already had one close vote, but not as a duplicate. After I voted, a mod voted to close as well, presumably not as a duplicate.

The problem is that the notice doesn't show the purported duplicate, and the usual comment about the possible duplicate didn't show up.

I'm logging this as a bug since it throws away useful information for the OP, namely, the link to the purported duplicate.

I thought there might be some information on Meta.ELU and Meta.SE, but the closest Meta questions I found were the following, none of which helped:

On Meta.SE from a search with the string "close duplicate missing notice is:question":

  • @curiousdannii Thanks for that information - I wasn't aware of it. Nevertheless, I still think it's a bug. I linked to two questions but voted to close the question as a duplicate of only one of them. There's also no guarantee in general that citing a link in comments cites that link as the duplicate, or even as a duplicate at all.
