I asked this question on the Nickelodeon series Avatar Would it be possible for some to bend two elements? I linked to a previous question which had inspired it. Right away the first comment I received was from someone saying I had a possible duplicate and linking to to the same source and to this question also What determines a bender's element? Now technically the second link did ask this question but not as the primary question and according to what I've seen on this site it should have been made into an new question anyways. I had even read it before and missed the question.
I see this repeatedly where someone asks a main question and then asks a secondary question that should be addressed separately. Now in my case I don't feel any of the answers that were given to the previous questions came with enough authoritative information to be the answer to my question which is why I felt it needed to be addressed. I can definitely see though how it can look like a duplicate question but since the main question wasn't the same I wouldn't consider it a duplicate even if it wasn't my question.
Now most of this will get solved by people up voting or down voting and so my question specifically isn't the issue but an example of the problem I've noticed. If someone asks more than one question inside of a main question then does it count as a duplicate question if one of the secondary questions are asked separately?
