I asked a question (to be specific, this one) about four months ago and got a completely satisfying answer.

In the meantime I continued my project and built my own solution for the problem by slightly modifying the answer I have gotten, and new questions concerning the same project turned up. They're quite specific and can't be asked in a meaningful way without referring to the project itself.

How should I ask them? Should I ask them as comments in the old question? Should I open new questions? Or should I do something different?

    IMHO the best thing would be opening a new question with a clear reference to the first one, and building up on that. Scientific paper style.

    @MaxD: I suggest opening a new question, with clear explanations why the first question (refer to it) was solved and why/how new 'problems' appeared, otherwise it could be endangered by 'close-voters' (;-)) as duplicate. I would refrain from adding comments to your old question, since comments have to be short and will be probably not noticed at all (especially in old questions)

    This is very similar to I've just been told I have to post a follow-up question, why and how?... even though you've "not been told".
