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'm new to this forum and I'm reviewing the following post:

AS3 using PrintJob to print a MovieClip

I want to ask a question specific to this post… how do I do that? All I see here is "Post your Answer". Surely you don't just start a new thread?

First of all, welcome! Are you looking to ask the question owner something, or are you wanting to ask a similar question? – Jesse Apr 19 '13 at 23:34
As Jesse said, welcome! Second of all, great job at coming to the meta to ask about what you should do (that is actually the correct thing to do to come on the meta to ask about it!) – Hugo Dozois Apr 19 '13 at 23:57

If you want to ask the OP to clarify something, you should leave it as a comment on the question.

If you want to ask a question related to the original one, ask it as a new question but add a link to the original one, referencing it.

And we don't really do threads on stack exchange :)

Chat is also an excellent place to ask a question about a question. However, you will need 20 reputation to talk in chat and fifty to leave comments (you can always comment on your own posts). – ɥʇǝS Apr 20 '13 at 1:17
The OP doesn't yet have 50 rep on SO, so commenting on others' posts isn't an option (right now). – Yannis Apr 20 '13 at 1:31
I think it is a bad idea to flag like that. It just increases the mod's workload, esp. on SO. – nhahtdh Apr 20 '13 at 11:54
I agree @nhahtdh - but it is a workaround – Rory Alsop Apr 20 '13 at 11:59
Please don't suggest that low rep users abuse the system by posting comments as answers and flagging them. While this might work on some smaller sites it's not a good idea at all on Stack Overflow. You are more likely to get the "answer" down-voted and deleted. – ChrisF Apr 20 '13 at 12:27
@chrisf I removed my 'update' - forgot the dramatic scale difference... – Rory Alsop Apr 20 '13 at 12:31
Thank you for all of the info above. It does help considerably. From this it seems like I should just ask this as a new question and link to the original. – user2300893 Apr 21 '13 at 13:46
