The tribe of people who decide to use up their flags every day is probably small, but I can tell it's doing a lot because I am finding less junk as I try to use up mine. One thing that's surprised me is how mechanical you can be to turn up bad answers. Just searching for the newest instance of some trigger words and phrases finds plenty, every day. Or at least plenty-ish.
However one thing that seems it will always be with us is this:
Hi guys I have this too only mine is for ABC not DEF anyway I tried what it says in the second answer but it doesn't work can any body help plz you can send me your code
Now if this person was to ask this as a question (and would have to use most of the words from the original question in their new question), the handy "related questions" would appear since invariably these have all been asked a thousand times before. Is there any way some heuristics (low poster rep, a question mark in the answer, trigger phrases like "same problem", "send me", "please", and "thanks" (along with their misspellings and abbreviations) and I don't know what all else) could trigger a list of related questions?
I think we've all had the experience of starting to ask something, getting the related questions, and getting our answer and feeling looked after. That's a good thing. I would like to trigger it for these newcomers who don't know how the site works. Does anybody think that's possible?
