I've noticed that this recent question is probably a duplicate of this question. However, as a recent recipient of the 5e gold badge, I'm hesitant to unilaterally close it as a duplicate. I have the following questions:

  1. Is it really a duplicate? The first is asking for confirmation, I suppose, and the second is asking for the information itself, but they do strike me as duplicates.

  2. Both questions have attracted a number of downvotes. Should this factor into how I think about the close vote, or which question is a duplicate of which?

  1. Yes.

  2. No. Usually we close the newer as a dupe of the old unless there's a dramatic disparity in quality that would make the newer one more canonical.
