From the Help Center:
Marking a question as duplicate is part of the question closing procedure, except when a question is closed as duplicate, the title is appended with "[Duplicate]" rather than "[Closed]".
I'm a native English speaker and not a scholar of English. When I look at this sentence, I see three phrases separated by two commas, and something is striking me as so discordant that I can not figure out, unambiguously, what this sentence is actually saying.
I think the problem centers around the word "except". Does "except" apply to marking or to is part of?
