What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I've gone through the FAQ on Stack Overflow but see what's written here

We’d love to help you. But not every question on Stack Overflow gets answered. To improve your chances, here are some tips:

Every time I try to find the text area where I can write my question's title and ask my independent question but instead I get a search bar which searches my category of question. If it is not able to search, then there is a display like this :

No questions found with related titles. Try our more advanced search!

I don't want to search my question. I want to ASK my own. I think it sounds like 'spoon feed' but I really need it.

Then what were you getting. Take a snapshot and show us –  Bart Jan 22 '13 at 8:25
    
Are you getting something that looks like the screenshot Bart included in his answer? If not, show us what you are getting! –  Rory Alsop Jan 22 '13 at 8:40

I wonder how you were able to ask a question here. The process is the same. I clearly do not understand what your problem is. –  Happy Jan 22 '13 at 8:41

That's the "How to Ask" page. Click on the checkbox in the bottom left corner and click "Proceed". –  Bart Jan 22 '13 at 9:10
    
Thanks a lot !! –  ankitaP Jan 22 '13 at 9:13
    
@ankitaP You're welcome. That was a long time ago. Never thought about that step. :) –  Bart Jan 22 '13 at 9:13

If you're stuck on the "How to Ask" page, read the page, and in the bottom left corner, click on the checkbox and then click on "proceed".

Other than that it's pretty simple really and exactly the same process as on Meta Stack Overflow. First, click on the big "Ask Question" button.

Then fill out your title, the actual question and any relevant tags.

Click on "Post your question" and you should be good to go.

This is all allowed to me in "meta stackoverflow" not "stack overflow" whatever you showed was not there. And I can't upload image. "Oops! Your edit couldn't be submitted because: We're sorry, but as a spam prevention mechanism, new users aren't allowed to post images. Earn more than 10 reputation to post images." –  ankitaP Jan 22 '13 at 9:01
    
Put it on imgur or whatever and link to it. –  Bart Jan 22 '13 at 9:01
    
otherwise I would have upload the snapshot. Thank you. –  ankitaP Jan 22 '13 at 9:01
