The question "What are good places to post your work where it will be read by others?" is locked "because it has historical significance, but it is not considered a good, on-topic question for this site". It shows that an impressive 45 users have marked it as a favourite.

There are two almost identical answers by the same user, with 2 votes and 0 votes. There seems no value whatsoever in retaining the second answer with no votes.

Do moderators have the capacity to remove such an answer on a locked post?

Yes, and done. Thank you for pointing out the duplication.

  • Normally I'd have flagged it for moderator attention, but flags aren't possible for locked posts, so I guess Meta where you go to flag these? Oct 14, 2018 at 2:27

    Yeah, not ideal, but without the ability to flag, what else can you do? Meta's fine. Thanks for bringing it up. Oct 14, 2018 at 2:32
  • There's another duplicate answer (regarding Fictionpress), but the second answer has a useful comment. Is it worth copying that comment and adding it (as a comment) to the first answer so that the second answer can be deleted? Not trying to give you extra work ;-) Oct 14, 2018 at 2:32

    Done. (We can't move comments directly, but I can convert a post to a comment and bring its comments along for the ride, so I did that and then deleted the comment that was previously the post.) Oct 14, 2018 at 2:35
  • Nicely done :-) Oct 14, 2018 at 2:38
