I asked this question Should one store a tent loose for prolonged periods between uses to maximize its lifetime?. The first version of my question was, indeed, a duplicate of What is the best way to store my tent?. When this was pointed out, I edited my question (and its title) to explain why the previous question had not adequately addressed my principal concern -- actually, it had not addressed my principal concern at all.
I am specifically interested in an aspect not covered by that question: does prolonged storage (several years, not several months) in its stuff sack without ever taking it out affect the lifetime of the tent?
Can we reopen my question, or if not, will someone please explain why my question, as edited, still seems like a duplicate to him or her?
