A recent user asked a question about 1.5 months ago regarding his/her boss and how he/she should respond.
Although the question was initially down-voted, the user received a number of helpful suggestions on how to resolve the workplace situation.
Recently the user asked what appears to be a duplicate of the original question.
Despite the negative response to what appears to be a duplicate question. I wonder if the workplace has a mechanism for updates. Not updates in terms of editing the question, but in terms of an appropriate format.
If a user has a development to a situation and edits the original question, most likely it won't receive attention to reflect the updated situation as most answers would be based upon past conditions. Plus people are busy, chances are they won't revise all of their past answers to reflect the most up to date situation.
Likewise if the same situation + development is asked as a standalone question, it runs the risk of a duplicate flag.
With this said, what would be the most ideal solution?
Edit the original and ask for revised and new answers or create a new question with the development and acknowledge its history and allow for more discussion?
