I'm trying to solve a programming problem, and have found a solution in an existing question. However, after following the suggestions in that solution, I'm still unable to solve my problem, despite further investigation & extensive searching for answers. The Stack Overflow answer I'm using is about a year old.
Would I get a better response if I created a new question and asked my specific issue separately, linking to the old question, or should I ask for additional help in the comments / answers to the original question?
I like the idea of adding more information to the original question so that it may eventually address the issues I'm running into, but worry that no-one will notice a new comment on a question that's a year old.
I didn't find any information on this in meta SO either :)
