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 do comments work?

I know that you can answer a question by filling out the "Add An Answer" form and clicking submit, but how do I just reply to the question with a request for more information? I noticed that other people can do it, but I must be blind or something, because I don't see a "reply" button anywhere.

I'm using Chrome on OS X.

What's the reasoning for the rep requirement? Catching spam in comments would be harder? – Chris Marisic Feb 23 '10 at 16:18
BTW-- The 50 rep limit does not apply to your own questions. – dmckee Feb 23 '10 at 18:58
@dotnetchris: Actually, catching spam in comments is harder, because it doesn't bump the question to the top. Comments are also harder to see, which is more of a factor in larger questions/answers with more comments, which show the "show more comments" button. – Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 23:05

That is the Add Comment feature, and you need 50 reputation to do that. See the SO FAQ
