What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I asked a question on Stackoverflow which was, judged by the answers, misunderstood. However it got some upvotes which makes me think it might be useful in the future nonetheless.

I would want to ask basically the same question again (maybe link to the 'wrong' one) and explain my problem more clearly.

On the other hand i don't like to search SO and find many similar questions. It's makes it harder to find what I'm looking for.

Which would be more polite to our fellow community?

Of course. (It was already in my clipboard.) – DerMike Aug 27 '10 at 16:38

If the answers are good for the question that was asked, I'd leave that one alone and ask a new one. Explain in the new question that it's similar but not the same as the old one and give specific details as to how they're different.
