A lot of first time users don't find an exact match to their questions but land at a lot of questions and answers that are almost what they want.
As a new user they cannot comment and post their exact question, which is then flagged and later marked as a duplicate.
Will making it easier for users to find chat reduce this? They could link the similar question in chat and get an exact answer. The earlier Q&A can then be updated to include quirks and workaround resulting from newer software version.
