Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

How can I ask a clarification of a part of a old question that I don't understand?

For example:

I was reading this question

Best way to code Achievements system

but, in the middle of explanation there is a piece of code that I don't understand the reason

require '/badges/' . $file;
$badge = new $class;

I think that I could add a comment, but then it's probable that nobody see my comment (as the question is old), and I'm not sure that is good idea create a new related question.

If you add a comment, and if the asker is still around, he will get a notification about your comment, and might choose to answer. (Your particular question looks like not really like a question - most of it would be better in an answer, but there the same point would be valid.) – Paŭlo Ebermann Sep 6 '11 at 1:29
