I've only recently earned the "vote to close" privilege. I am faced with the decision of whether to close a question as a duplicate. I see that the answer to the original question exactly applies to this new question. This is indicated by someone in one of the comments. But the other question is obviously a different one. It is a different piece of code with a different situation. Only the principle of answer is the same.
Now, I'm confused.
If the OP agrees that his problem is somehow resolved based on reading the original question, there is no more problem and this question can be closed. In this case, the OP hasn't given any clue, so it is not clear if this should be left open and expect that somebody to explicitly write an answer to this question.
What is the general practice? Just close the question assuming the OP has got enough hints even though there is no answer? Or keep the question based on the argument that the situation in the question is different?
