Merge kudos should add a vote from the poster of the idea being merged

Yesterday I merged https://community.esri.com/t5/python-ideas/create-annotation-feature-class-tool/idi-p/1006570/jump-t... (idea 2) with an existing idea: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/geoprocessing-toolset-for-creating-and-manipulating-a... (idea 1). 

Because a user is not allowed to give their own idea kudos, idea 2 had 0 kudos.  So when it is merged and Merge Kudos is applied, there are 0 kudos added to idea 1.  While this may be technically correct, it is not logically correct.  As long as the poster of idea 2 has not already voted for idea 1, then 1 vote should be added to idea 1.  This is not the case, and it would be great if this logic could be corrected so that the number of kudos on idea 1 reflects real demand.

With the way that it works now, you can see that I have to ask the second user (poster of idea 2) to vote for idea 1.  That user experience is less than ideal and it would be great if the Merge Kudos functionality handled the transaction automatically.

Thank you!
