Four days ago, I answered this question migrated from SO. Two days later, a practically identical question was posted here, and as the tags were in my field, I saw it, provided a link to the duplicate question and voted to close.
But, as this site is still in beta, and most users have specific areas of expertise among all the areas covered with this site, the question did not attract many views. As it is really a duplicate, and not that well written, it did not (as expected) get any upvotes, and as such attracted even less views. Among that, some of the users that open decide it's not interesting to them, don't bother to check if it is a duplicate or do not have the power to vote to close.
As a result, a clear duplicate question is taking a long time to close. Is there any way to speed up this process on small beta sites such as this one?
