This question already has an answer here:
When I am reviewing, especially in the first time post reviews, and I flag a not-an-answer answer, I try to leave the poster some feedback in the hope he/she reads it before it gets deleted (sometimes that is wishful thinking).
When the poster is basically asking "me too, what do you end up doing?" How should we try to guide them to the appropriate course of action? For a more experienced user, the appropriate action would be to post the follow-up as a comment or even better add a bounty to the question.
But what is the appropriate action for a new user, especially if the original question did not have a real answer? Should we recommend he reask the same question in hopes of finding an answer? Is there another alternative that we can recommend?
