Answer or comment: what's the etiquette?
I have just started using stack overflow. I have a rep of 26, How do I comment? I cannot see any link or input box to comment. (I noted that a rep of 1+ is needed)
No, you need a rep of 50 to comment. See http://stackoverflow.com/faq#reputation-abilities
Right now, you can only comment on your own questions, or your own answers.
I know this is confusing for the new user. I've been there myself. It's confusing because you see other people's comments but you don't see any links to add comments.
I think that maybe a link to "comment" should appear regardless of the reputation, but then check the reputation score when user clicks the link and show small message "you need reputation score of at least 50 to add comments"
What do you guys think?
