When we close a question as a duplicate of another, the following is displayed on the question:
I thought that the normal protocol was to have the original author edit the existing the question that was closed and then have it be voted on to be reopened (or reopened without any edits if the question isn't in fact a duplicate). However, the wording of the close reason seems to state to "ask a new question" instead. There have been many times where someone's question is closed only to have them ask it again and have it closed again as a duplicate of the other.
Should the wording of the close reason be changed to something more to the tune of editing the current question? Or is asking a new question (that has been altered in a way to be considered a separate question) the proper protocol already?
