Is there a way to modify a consideration?

G'day Monks,

Today, we have a situation where Reaped: Re^2: Epoch based parser was posted anonymously. It had a 'code' tag markup typo and was duly considered. A short while later, this was reposted (Re^2: Epoch based parser) but now the poster was logged in.

I was going to consider the anonymous posting for Reaping but, as it's already been considered for Editing, I can't do that.

So, in general, is there a way to deal with this beyond raising the issue in Perl Monks Discussion, as I've done here?

If what I've done here is the best way to handle this type of situation, could someone with appropriate permissions change the consideration of Reaped: Re^2: Epoch based parser to "Reap: anonymous duplicate of Re^2: Epoch based parser".

Update:

      A /msg to the Janitors is the best way to reach them if none of them happen to be online. If one or more are online and paying attention to the CB, mentioning it in the CB will probably get faster action.

      ++ I had considered the CB to discuss this but the monastery was virtually empty at the time. I hadn't considered /msg janitors ... — thanks for the tip; message sent.
