Someone took a question I posted to the boost-users/spirit-general mailing lists, and reposted it on SO. I've been receiving some really good answers, but unfortunately I can't comment on them; instead I need to create a new answer every time I want to comment. Is it possible to enable commenting on my account so I can provide proper feedback on the answers?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
To gain this permission, simply answer (correctly or usefully) one question on StackOverflow. That will be sufficient enough Reputation for you to get the permission you need. Alternatively, someone can up-vote your question / answer.
The idea is that your answer will be selected as the correct answer (15 Rep) and up-voted by the OP, if the answer was helpful (10 Rep). Every additional up-vote would be another 10 Rep.
Given the current state of the question, my recommendation is:
IMO, it's your question—you should be able to choose which is the accepted answer.
