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

How can I get clarification on an answer (by Vytautas Butkus) from either him or the community for the post "jQuery Hide and show Toggle div with Plus and Minus Icon?" (at jQuery Hide and show Toggle div with Plus and Minus Icon?) but everywhere I look it says I can't ask a question (must provide an answer). I'm dead in the water right now, so how can I get my question to that user or the community? Thanks.

@JonW: He can't low rep. – Madara Uchiha Apr 5 '13 at 13:02
If you can't post a comment, ask a question, and link the original answer – Jan Dvorak Apr 5 '13 at 13:02
OK, answer one question on SO and get a single upvote so you have 10 rep, then leave a comment asking for clarification. – JonW Apr 5 '13 at 13:02
@JonW 50 points are needed to comment – Jan Dvorak Apr 5 '13 at 13:03
Ah yes, thought they were part of new user restrictions, but my bad, they're a separate privilege. – JonW Apr 5 '13 at 13:05
Not sure why a newbie can't leave a comment. I'll never get the 50 points required for that. Seems like Jan's suggestion is the only way. Thanks for the suggestions though. – JYN Apr 5 '13 at 13:06
@JYN - It means spammers can't use comments to spam. – Oded Apr 5 '13 at 13:08
@JYN. Getting 50 points isn't actually particularly difficult. I wouldn't call myself a great programmer, and I have over 2,000. I'm also an atheist with over 1,000 points on Christianity Stack Exchange. shrug – TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Apr 5 '13 at 17:17

Keep that answer on hold, ask a few (good) questions, answer a few, get 50 reputation points, and then you'll be able to leave a comment on it.

Ask some questions, answer some questions. Suggest some good edits on existing posts.

With these, you will get reputation.

When you have enough reputation, you will be able to add comments.
