What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

Just see these two questions:

First: How to retrieve yahoo contact in Android?
and
Second: http://stackoverflow.com/q/16373262/1369235

A same user asked two questions with the same title.

Title of both questions (before the revision):

  1. How to retrieve yahoo contact in Android?
  2. How to retrieve yahoo contact in Android ?

(only difference is that space between Android and ?).

A user tried to improve the post (only body and not title) but he got this error message:

enter image description here

If someone get this error while editing a question then how can a user ask a question with the same title? (In other words if space difference is not considered while editing then why it is considered while asking?)

Related meta.stackexchange.com/q/145866/179419, my answer basically demonstrates this. A simple win is to lower case everything and strip out punctuation when making thw check. –  ben is uǝq backwards May 4 '13 at 12:39
