Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

A lot of time I asked question in Stack Over.. There is a good answer but something is still not clear. So I reply(comment) to him. But sometime you need to add code also, as he also need to add code which does not support the syntax. Which can be very confusing. Can you add that to the commenting system?

You can add code to comments If you need more put it to your question. – Ladybug Killer Aug 21 '09 at 8:40

Usually, the \code in comments\ trick works - however, if I've had to make a particularly long comment with code included, then on occasion I've added a "wiki" reply, along the lines of "this is really a comment relating to {whatever}, but I needed more space {now lots of space}".

I don't know if that was good or bad, but it worked, and satisfied my inner compass for not "gaming" anything with an answer that wasn't really an answer.
