If you search with tag search for dublicates with dublicate tag there is currently 2 questions in the tjc?

yesterday there was 116 dublicates, which also felt quite low number to me.

Is there something wrong with the tag filtering/searching and hopefully existing tagged dublicates are not lost.

Hi Kari - what is a 'dublicate'?, do you mean 'duplicate'?

Soon there will be 0 dublicates, as I change the tag in them to "duplicate". :) Edit: done.

heh It seems it is my turn to feel stupid today - All the dublicates have now really gone as they should have been already.

Thanks to @ssahla to clearing my mess.

Luckily there isn't any stupid tag ;) for this question, but the tags on this question went still right - How amazing... Edit: @ssahla corrected that also :)

Closing as answered and solved...

Additional remark:

It seems the Askbot remembers all the old "incorrect" tags as well i.e. the tag field offers to all of us now both dublicate and dublicates - I wonder if these can be removed from the tag entry list?

@Kari, I think the tag suggestions need to be cleaned manually by admin, so they wouldn't be offered in the tag field. I think @eric has been doing that – @eric, if you're listening, "dublicate(s)" can be removed. :)

the correct spelling is "duplicate". Could this be the problem? the search shows many results with it.

Hi Acce, as you do not know your answer is correct, please stick to 'commenting' until the poster declares your answer to be correct. Regards,

I think it's ok to post a "possible-answer". Then the original poster can confirm it or not.

@Markkyboy, as @ssahla said, it is ok to post your answers, be their correct or not. The votes are to determine the best answer and in addition, the original poster can check the answer as accepted from all the answers. Comments are for asking more information or making suggestions in my opinion.
