This is the first time I'm dealing with a situation like this, so I'm seeking some guidance. I've read several related questions on meta, including "What's the etiquette for answering two similar questions?" and "Is it acceptable to add a duplicate answer to several questions?", which clarified things up a bit, but I'm still unsure.
Here's the story: two days ago I answered this question. The user was asking if it is possible to put a custom view into an expandablelistview. I looked at the source code of the custom view the user was referring to and figured out that his custom view was derived from ListView, and Android does not allow one scrollable view inside another scrollable view. So the answer basically consists of two points: 1: Your custom view is inherited from a ListView. 2: You can't put a ListView into another scrollable view.
And then today there is another very similar question, only this time a different user is trying to put a ListView directly into an ExpandableListView, without the custom view part, and the correct answer should just consist of point 2 from the previous paragraph.
What should I do with se second question, mark as duplicate? But the second question is not really an exact duplicate, it's rather a half of the first question. What's the right approach here?
