I am a new user to the Stack Exchange network.
I am making a proposal to add to the FAQ a Question: How to avoid asking duplicate questions?
This will be especially useful to the new users (FAQ is supposed to help new users, I guess).
Please explain the following:
How to effectively search for an answer/question? (Please add the discussion How do I search?)
Will asking a specific question about a system whose answer is in another question which deals with the general aspect of the system be considered a duplicate and closed? (Meaning question is not exactly a duplicate, but answer can be found by extensive reading of answers from other related questions)
This is not a duplicate of the question 'how to avoid asking duplicate questions' because this deals with adding that question to faq.
