Default Frog Tutorial: "Warning: Border edges cannot be deleted"

I'm receiving that error at the section in the tutorial where you're deleting 4 borders which make up the end of the wrist. I'm doing it exactly like the tutorial.

If I only extrude once and don't pull anything out, and simply scale the vertices down and merge them - then deleting those edges works fine...

However - this problem occurs after I extrude those edges out 3 times and then scale / merge / select those 4 edges.


Any idea of what this problem could be? I've been tryin to figure it out for over an hour!

Thanks!

Nevermind... Out of desperation I decided to select each area around each of the vertices and merge them, just to be sure there wasn't any other vertices very close that I didn't see - and it worked.

actually... when I extrude the edge, after once or twice the problem arises... If I select one of the vertices at one of the points (where it appears as though there's only one) there are actually 2 vertices overlapping, which is causing all of the problems. I'm doing everything exactly as shown in the tutorial so I imagine it's a setting or something that I don't have right?

ok i pinpointed the problem, when i select the edges and extrude (even on the first time), it is duplicating the vertices as well. i watched how he did it 10 times and im doing it the exact same way.. the only difference i notice is his selected edges appear bolder.

i assume the duplicated vertices is not supposed to happen?
