I've found a question corresponding to mine (What is the purpose of favoriting questions?), but need some precisions (Do favoriting questions help to get an answer?).

  1. If I had enough reputation : by adding in the question a comment? an answer written like a question? Something else ?
  2. If I don't have enough reputation to comment or edit out of my questions : how ? Then, how do I link to the parent question ?

In this case, you're really asking a different question.

"What is X for?" exists.

Your question is, "Does X achieve A?"

If that's not answered in the more general question, then you usually have a separate question, and it's fine to post it separately. You can link to the related question if you judge it would be helpful.

You must log in to answer this question.
