Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am sorry, couldn't come up with a better title.

So, what I wanted to ask is, before when I was new to SOF, when I used to click on Ask Question, it used to give a list of all the similar questions, make me check a box asking me to remember the tips to ask questions, and then again click a button Ask question and then redirect me to a page where I could actually ask a question, though it gave suggestions after typing the subject title.

Nowadays, when I click Ask Question, it directly takes me to the place to ask the question, type the thing in subject title, and shows me the possible similarities.

The former was much more helpful actually because we could clearly see a brief explanation of everything unlike the latter, check everything in a much more better way.

Anyways, does this feature still exists or has been eradicated? Or does this feature goes away as a person keeps building a reputation?

Look for the words "How to Ask".

I just remembered it is also linked on the /ask page itself, in the sidebar where it says asking help »
