I have just seen the below auto-generated markup for the first time:

enter image description here

Unlike other auto-generated markup, this isn't edited into the question and appears to be in-page rather than in-post. The post in question has close votes for 'duplicate' - I'm aware that some work has gone into the closing as duplicate stuff recently, is this an additional side effect of this as I have never seen this before?

To get one of these added to a question do you simply need to VTC it as a duplicate or are there any other actions that are required to get one of these to appear?

  • I believe this is part of the new closing questions changes. There are big changes to most aspects of the closing process. However, I can't really find documentation at the moment... – agent86 Feb 6 '13 at 16:27

At the moment, this banner appears as soon as one close as duplicate vote is cast. There is a discussion on Meta.SO on whether this behaviour makes sense, as requiring only one vote could be abused relatively easily.

  • Ok cool, well at least that link highlights something else - whatever is making our head text in the notification orange could perhaps be changed to make it not orange? :p~ – user27134 Feb 6 '13 at 17:07
