On a traditional forum when I want to learn more about a subject I can start a thread, ask some questions and then after getting answer I can expand on them. I can ask multiple questions in a single post and ask many follow-up questions.
Obviously, the approach at Q&A sites is different. I don't want just 1 specific question answered. Instead, I want to learn more about a subject.
Which one of the following approaches should I choose when asking questions on StackOverflow?
- Try to distinguish a few major questions/problems and ask follow-up questions in the comments?
- Ask a separate question for each problem?
- (A different solution, please describe in comments)
