Does this only happen to me?

I asked a question named 'Indices' because I needed help with a question; I then submitted my question and some time ago someone else had asked the question with the title 'Indices' so instead of my question coming up, their question did but with my name??

I would understand if I asked the exact same question as someone else did, but I asked a completely different question just with the same name.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Sounds a bit odd but certainly fixable if we can track it down.

Thanks for the great explanation of the problem, I will get it looked at by our Dev team.

Always feel free to let me or one of the team know if any problems arise so we can get them fixed

Right we've done some investigation and found you can create duplicates as you described.

Our developers have now released a fix for this that should prevent this happening in future.

Thanks for letting me know :)

If have never had a question where this happened, but i once clicked on a question to answer it because it said zero replies, and when i clicked on it loads of replies were there and the date was from a long time ago. I tried it again several times, but it kept sending me to an old page. It had the same question title too. 

Since then i've seen it happen on two questions that i have tried to answer.

Yeah thats what i mean, it sends off a question that has already been answered many times even if the question you have just asked is completely different.

You will know if the question is one like this if it has zero replies and zero views

Yeah that's what happened when i viewed it. I thought it was strange that it said zero views.
