deleted your duplicate discussion

In this case, since you added some new info on the 3/25 version of the question, I went ahead and deleted the one you started on 3/20.

For the future, though - it's best if you just add a post to the old discussion - that bumps the discussion back to the top of the forum index and also gives you the opportunity to add any new facts to the original discussion. There are two reasons that's better than posting over again from scratch:

  1. It notifies any of the people who had bookmarked the original discussion (to come back to later, or to follow as posts were added) that a change has been made, so they'll be sure to know to come back to it (33 people had read the discussion you started on 3/20).
  2. It eliminates duplicates. Duplicates are bad because if both discussions become active at the same time (somebody finds the original and bumps it to respond, at the same time others are responding to the new one), the responses can diverge, and you lose the benefit of everyone seeing everybody else's responses and building on them. Also, they're confusing and/or annoying for those who come later and search on the same topic, whether or not they both have responses.

You can also edit the info in your original post, in addition to or instead of adding info in a new (reply) post - go to "my contributions" at the upper right corner of your screen, find and open the original discussion, click "edit this page" and make changes [to your own posts only, to comply with the code of conduct!] and then click the "save page" button at the bottom. Once you've made your edits to the original post, you should also then add a new post at the end of the discussion that simply asks for comment or says "bump" - something to move your discussion back up to page 1 of the forum index.
