What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 129 Stack Exchange communities.

I have been viewing a lot of first posts from new users. I often see answers such as "thanks", or "me too", or they are asking a different question altogether. I like to point out the fact that they will eventually be able to comment their opinions and upvote answers that they like. So I would like to have a comment such as

Hello user, and welcome to [main]. It is great that the answer helped you, however, that is not the purpose of adding an answer. Soon enough, with just a little bit of work, you will gain [help/privileges/comment] and be able to comment and upvote answers that help you.

[privileges] would link to the site's privilege page, and /comment would link to the page in privileges that talks about commenting. Hash tags could be used to indicate any section of the privileges page. As hammar pointed out, because each privilege is a different page, the magic links would have to be slashes. For example

This would work similar to the FAQ magic link comments

I think you do not know about this: AutoReviewComments - Pro-forma comments for SE –  Aditya May 20 '13 at 18:47

No I do. It's my favorite stack overflow plugin –  Cody Guldner May 20 '13 at 19:10

Since those are actually different pages, and not just different anchors on the same page (like the [faq] ones), they shouldn't be using #. I'd prefer [privileges/comment], etc. –  hammar May 28 '13 at 18:27
