New users can't ask for clarifications except as answers

Today is my first day using stackoverflow and as such I cannot yet comment - as you need 50 rep points to do so. As such adding answers is my only way to communicate, that I know of.

How would you suggest I interact with the question-asker and prompt for further information without being lambasted by those that have said 50 rep?

(This questions has no newbie or faq or question tag; new is the most appropriate tag I could find - I'd need 1500 rep create a new tag)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


Attempt to answer the question making educated guesses on the information that is missing.

You must state all of the things that you are assuming and when/if the OP decides to give some more info, you can always update your post.

  • For example - if the OP is asking about a certain jQuery function but "forgot" to include a sample of the HTML markup they are using, invent your own markup and give your answer based on that.

  • Another example - if the OP "forgot" to specify what language they are using (but you can safely assume that he is using web technologies), give an answer in JavaScript.
