The question What were some of the first two stage rockets flown? has just been put on hold as duplicate to When did the concept of “stages” enter rocketry?.
I feel this was a bit of reckless voting, and needless holding.
The first clue might be that the held question asks for some specific rockets, the "dupe" asks for a historical date.
Viewing the proposed "duplicate" we see there are four answers.
- ancient Chinese fireworks
- historical writings of Konstantin Tsiolkovsy
- writings of Cyrano de Bergerac
and finally an answer by @Uwe, who is also the OP of the held question in question:
However, the rockets briefly mentioned here are already cited in @Uwe's question, and so are clearly not also the answer to it!
A careful reading of the question might indicate that the title doesn't match the body of the question well, and so a helpful comment asking for some alignment or clarification would be warranted.
But is closing as duplicate really warranted in this case since the question cites as examples the only rockets (other than Chinese fireworks) that happen to be mentioned (also by the OP) in one of the answers of the proposed duplicate?
