A few days ago I posted a question here without a login. I quickly received an answer, and set about working on my code.
I hit a problem using this suggestion, so came back to leave a comment. I found myself unable to do this, and instead left an answer with a further question – something I appreciate is frowned upon, but there seemed to be no other way to enquire further. This was promptly deleted.
I eventually worked out what the problem was, so came back a second time to leave a comment to say thank you, and to explain what I had done to get my function to work. Again, I could not leave a comment, so left an answer that included the code, should others wish to see my solution.
Again, this was deleted. I noticed earlier that part of it has been moved to a comment, but has mangled my answer to the extent that it is useless, merely repeating much of my original question.
According to the FAQ answers are removed if they are off-topic, of low quality, or do not answer the question.
Could someone explain why my second answer – which provided a solution to my original question – was deleted? Was it not of sufficient quality? Is it frowned upon to answer my own question? And why can't I leave comments on my own question? I find this all very confusing and extremely frustrating as a new user, and as a beginner.
