Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 do comments work?

I know it is a repetitive question, but I couldn't find the solution.

I can't leave a comment on any posts/questions on Stack Overflow, but I can leave a comment on Meta Stack Overflow.

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.

Why I'm limited? – Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:41
@Behzad because you don't have 50 reputation. It is to prevent spam – Richard J. Ross III Sep 9 '12 at 23:45
thanks Mystical and Richard. Why I could leave a comment before but now not? – Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:46
@Behzad: Read the linked post. You can always comment on your own questions (and answers to them), just not on those of others. – David Robinson Sep 10 '12 at 3:17

They are different sites, with different privilege levels, and your rep on them is independent. On meta you need 1 rep to comment on any post and you have 1 rep so you're good. On stackoverflow you need 1 rep to comment on posts in your questions, but you need 50 rep to comment on posts of someone else's questions and you have 37, so you're almost there.

I could comment some month ago! those days I had fewer rep than now! – Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:50
you can comment on your own questions and answers regardless of your rep. Perhaps in the past you were commenting on your own posts. – Kate Gregory Sep 9 '12 at 23:51
