Today I saw these two questions. They are IMHO very low quality/effort ones, but may be "fixed" with a few comments and right response from OPs. But looking at them together, they are two variants of the same thing, with the same wrong assumptions yet comming from two different (new) users. If it were the same user for both I would just let them be or suggest closing if no edits were made, but this looks fishy. Should I flag both questions or should I evaluate each one separately?
Using public information, you can see:
- The identicons are the same
- Both users were created today
- Both are unregistered
So it is reasonable to assume there is some sort of connection, and might well be the same user. When you see a low quality post that can be salvaged, you can do one or more of:
- Vote down
- Vote to close
- Comment to constructively suggest improvements or request additional information
Flagging the question Very Low Quality would likely be declined in both cases, because they are not obvious candidates for immediate deletion. If the intention is to close (not delete), the correct option would be to vote to close (or flag 'should be closed because...').
Your other option is to flag for moderator attention:
This would be fine as well, so long as you are "specific and detailed". The key point is to mention the thing that requires action by a moderator. Now that option could simply be to check for anything "fishy" (but be more specific than that). In this case, I would probably mark the flag as helpful, and leave a comment inviting the user to register, then merge their accounts.
To finish, if it were me, I would have:
- Edited the question to improve formatting/spelling/tags etc.
- Voted down if the end result was still "unclear or not useful"
- Commented constructively
- Voted/flagged to start the community close review process
- Flagged a moderator to look into the apparent connection between the two users
