If we're asking a second CR question involving the same software, is it acceptable to give it nearly the same title? What is best practice for naming these questions?

Creating different titles for follow-ups is difficult, so most follow-up questions tend to have very similar titles which is perfectly fine. Some options for naming a follow-up question is:

  • XYZ Program v2
  • Follow-up to XYZ Program
  • XYZ Program continued
  • XYZ Program - follow-up

If you want to be creative, you can try to be creative with your titles for the follow-ups. My favorite is this sequence of questions:

  1. A grid and a menu walked into a program
  2. The grid looked at the menu and said "Something with class, please"
