This questions applies to all forums I suppose. If I have a question that is somewhat related to a previous thread that I created, but at the same time is a fairly substantial question that could stand up as it’s own thread, should I ask it in my preexisting question or create a new thread? As I am learning UX, I have a LOT of questions that constantly arise. I’m afraid that if I post them in old questions they will become buried and less visible.
For example, right now I am embarking on a practice project that I need advice on. The part I am stuck on right now is related to finding if there is a user need for the product through contextual inquiries. At the same time, last week I asked a question about the broad generalities of contextual inquiries. My gut tells me to create a new thread for my more specific question so that more people may see it. However, I don’t want to over-saturate the forums with threads every time I have a question.
UX Mastery has fast become my go-to for advice and guidance, and the community here is incredibly kind, patient, and helping of complete newcomers like myself. I ask this question because I don’t want to abuse this community, yet questions are constantly popping up in my head!
