Right, so we just fixed this. If you ask a question first - eg, include a question word, and finish with a question mark.
Then add more detail - our system now recognizes the first bit and then puts both parts on the page as they should be.
However, if you're asking something our system determines is duplicate it'll still finish as a status update...but, we're working on that, so that you get to easily access the answers for that question after you enter it, instead of automatically making it a status update.
im not sure if this is how its supposed to be down but after i post a question, i go to edit and add a description
