I don't know if it is duplication but I wanted to make another question which is modified based on my previous question and its comments.

For example, I posted a question about a claim and its proof. The comments suggested to modify part of the claim. So I plan to make another question about the claim and the proof with a little modification.

Is there any other indications other than duplication if I make another question like this?

    Your question is a bit vague. But generally if you continue on a previously answered question, reference that your new question is based on that. If the previous question hasn't received answers, feel free to edit it.

  • That's right. I need to cite the previous question. But if I just edit the previous question, it will not be found on the top of NEWEST question list thus it will be less probable to be entertained. That's why a new question gives a new start. May 3 at 11:11

    "if I just edit the previous question, it will not be found on the top of NEWEST question list" - that's true, but it will be moved to the top of the "Active" question list. I can't speak for other users, but I personally use the "Active" list almost exclusively, and therefore I would see your edited question.

    @EddyPiedad if your previous question doesn't have any answers a new post is definetly not the way to go. Opt for editing, it will pop-up on the active page, which is way more useful anyways.
