I just received an inbox message regarding a question on StackExchange Meta that I never had anything to do with.

The inbox message relates to this question which was closed as a duplicate of this question.

You asked the initial question (and is actually where the comment is) hence why you get the notification.

I guess SE have implemented some redirection based on the whether the question is closed or not. As this is a duplicate it automagically redirects you to the new question. I guess that should not happen for requests from the inbox.


This MSO Question is a duplicate, of sorts, of this question as it highlights this behaviour already.

  • Thanks for the info. I was confused, as I don’t see my question.
