I need to write a comment to a solution.

As far as I know I need 50 reputation points for this, but, I only have 48!
This really sucks.

What can I do?

Thanks for the answers, I now have 53 reputation ;-)

But here 1 more thing: Can't the current system be exploited when 2 or more accounts are created by one person?

Move on and find something else to answer that isn't as vague –  random Oct 13 '10 at 22:34
    
I still think it's a problem of the system. either use some form of fuzzy logic to say who can post a comment or give an option for a user to earn quickly 2 to 5 points. this is simply too much headache. and it costs about 3 hours of my time. people don't like that. –  mrsteve Oct 13 '10 at 23:54

accept an answer. They give you 2 rep points.

Enter a user name on your profile. So that it is pretty obvious that you want to part of this thing instead of being a numbered user. Nobody really cares about nameless faceless people.

Interestingly software is written for nameless, faceless users. This might explain the cause of some quality issues. –  Peter Ajtai Oct 13 '10 at 22:42

You can give a good answer to another question, or ask a good question on the site. You only need one upvote to gain the privilege to comment on other posts, which is pretty easy to get.

You've basically answered your own question. You're right, you cannot leave comments until you have reached 50 reputation (except on your own posts). The number 50 was not picked arbitrarily; the admins wanted people to have been around for long enough to earn 50 rep before leaving comments. So, the only thing you can do is earn two more rep.
