I've found a question on Arqade that has been closed as a duplicate of another.

I do not believe that this question is a duplicate of its current duplicate target. It can be inferred in two ways, one that renders it as a duplicate, and another way that renders it as a separate question.

  • Duplicate inference: The question refers to outputting a selector to chat using a command block, which has already been asked.
  • Non-duplicate inference: The question refers to using /tellraw, while the duplicate target has an accepted answer of using /say, and /tellraw is different from /say.

It is currently unclear about which intent the OP had on this question. However, I have the same question of the Non-duplicate inference and would like an answer.

What is the best course of action? Here are the options I've considered:

  • Starting a bounty on the original, saying that there needs to be another answer on /tellraw.
  • Requesting for the duplicate to be reopened here as if it is the Non-duplicate inference I mentioned earlier. (if this is the best action, treat this as my reopen request)
  • Editing the duplicate to clarify it as the Non-duplicate inference, and getting it reopened so.

I don't think reopening the old question makes any sense, as the user hasn't been active in over a year.

I'm not a Minecraft expert, so I could be off base here, but I think the best course of action is for you to just ask a whole new question. We could then edit the closure text for How do I use Tellraw Selectors on Bedrock Edition? to point to both it's current duplicate target and your new question.

If you do ask a new question, I think it would be a good idea to explain why you want to use /tellraw instead of /say.
