I swear I've seen the answer to this somewhere but I couldn't find it after searching through the whole Writer's Workshop so here goes...

If you make two questions and you have both of them unlock a question. (the same question) Will that new question be unlocked as soon as one of the unlockers gets asked?

I'm guessing that the answer is yes. If so, how do I fix it so that both questions will be required?

Currently, the Cause/Effect triggers are OR. If any single Cause has occurred, the Effect event is unlocked.

As Jojo says, AND logic can often be implemented using multiple event triggers. The most common being that one event reveals a suspect while a second event reveals a question for that suspect.

Tried using the method described by Huglover.
There's no way to get rid of a question without actually asking it.

The system still works with twists though. (and I just might use that) But questions will probably need a suspect to work.

I think there really should be a way to remove questions. In addition to simulating boolean operations like described above, I can think of scenarios where it would add a level of control to make sure the plot moves in a sensible manner.
