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

How can I post a question on someone else's question? Are you only allowed to post answers on questions? Can I use the same one?

For example, see this Stack Overflow question: How do I make Javascript beep?

There is an accepted answer for that question. I have tried it, but in my situation it is not working. So how can I ask about that?

If the question isn't yours, you post a new question linking to the existing question and stating what you have tried.

If the original question you need to extend is yours, then you edit it.

@user: You posted a question here on Meta, right? Just do what you did here, except on SO itself. – JSONBog Oct 20 '10 at 18:49
What is the meaning of SO? – user152537 Oct 20 '10 at 18:51
Here i have click on 'Ask Question' to post a new question.Now i want to post question on already asked question? Do you want to post a new question eventhough it is already asked? – user152537 Oct 20 '10 at 18:52
@user SO means Stack Overflow. What Sid said goes for any site, though. You cannot post a question "on" another question. Usually posting duplicate questions is discouraged, but in this case you may not have a choice. – Pops Oct 20 '10 at 18:54
ok thanku. I posted another question – user152537 Oct 20 '10 at 19:10
Convenience link to the new question – Pops Oct 20 '10 at 19:58
i think i have similar problem, I see that "Add comment" link here but not in SO. I want to comment on someone's answer. From FAQ, there's a note "† you can always comment on your questions and answers, and any answers to questions you've asked, even with 1 rep." Does this mean I cannot post comment to questions I didn't ask without any rep? – user152548 Oct 20 '10 at 21:31
@user152548 That's correct. If you want to comment on someone else's answer (for a question you didn't ask) you need a minimum amount of reputation to do so. – George Stocker Oct 20 '10 at 21:41
