Number 10 of the FAQ page explains this:
"Why did my question go to status update? If your question has been commonly asked, then it will be sent to the status update board. We have a search tool available so you can find answers to other questions like your own. If you post a question that could have been found easily with the site search tool, then we will move it to the status update board. It keeps our question board from getting cluttered. Also, if your question does not follow the proper question format, it will be moved to the status update board, as well as a question with a vague title. This help page can assist you in properly asking and formatting a question." - http://www.funadvice.com/doc/faq
So, does the site just choose keywords from your question and if they match other previous questions, it just rejects it as a status update instead of a question?
Before the update, questions had sub-sections where you could further explain your question or give more info. Since that's gone now, how are you supposed to ask a more complicated question without the system kicking it over to a status update?
i assure you they were asked in the Form of questions beginning with; who, what, where,etc. . And if they were EXACT dplicates than i wish they would show the most recent duplicate question.
There may be a bunch of reasons:
The question was asked and answered several times already (most likely)
It did not seem like a question
