This question arises from the discussion about whether to close Removal of accents from demonstratives.

Let's say we get a new question in English about something that's already been asked and answered, but in Spanish. Is it fair to close the new one as a duplicate?

    Hi aparente and nice to see you debating here. Since you are posting after reading comments, didn't you see mine talking about ¿Deberían considerarse como duplicadas preguntas iguales formuladas en diferentes idiomas?? It will be funny to mark as a dupe this English question talking about what was already talked in Spanish :D

  • @fedorqui - Well, that is interesting. I didn't notice that. Now that I've taken a look, I wonder why some were hesitating to vote to close? Apr 25, 2019 at 3:55
  • I'm starting to wonder if merging would be better. But I fear merging would be messy. Too much work, maybe. Apr 25, 2019 at 4:23

    I also mean this question was already asked in Spanish :)

  • @fedorqui - I revamped the question to make it specifically about "Removal of accents from demonstratives." I haven't figured out why some are still hesitating to close that one. Apr 27, 2019 at 18:23
  • It already has 3 close votes, I don't think it will take long to have it closed.
