This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need a certain amount of reputation before you can do that, I believe – Akron Oct 28 '11 at 21:55
stackoverflow.com/privileges/comment 50 reputation. So you need 34 more. – Akron Oct 28 '11 at 21:55
