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

Say I have this question and its answers

C++ convert int and string to char*..

And then this question is asked

C++ converting an int to an array of chars?

Would it make sense to alter the title of the first question to

How to convert int and string to char* or a char array in C++

Then it's easier to refer to the second question.

I'm not asking about deleting the question. Rather just altering the title. – Preet Sangha Sep 28 '10 at 11:19

IMO no. If there is an exact duplicated is because the OP didn't have the words in mind to search the other question. Keeping both formats would provide more ways to get on the same result.
