Should a Question be flagged as a duplicate if there is an existing Question/Answer that solves it, even if the way the user is phrasing their problem is different?
This is inspired by these two questions:
- Cannot obtain correct area values *With* correct projections
- What projection to use with Mapbox base/reference layers?
In each case, the root cause of the problem was the user choosing the incorrect ArcMap tool (Define Projection, rather than Project), and so the solution is the same. However, the problem descriptions are different because the issue was showing up later in their different workflows.
I can see the value of retaining each one, since a frustrated user of each type would Google for different terms to solve their problem. However, I also feel a little silly providing the exact same Answer twice (particularly since they were asked about an hour apart from one another).
