How do comments work?

No, I don't ask about how to answer a question, but make a comment on people's question or answer. I didn't see any comment button.

  • well, this is weird. Because, now I see the 'add comment' button :( – ariefbayu Aug 21 '09 at 22:32
  • You're always able to comment on and edit your own questions, regardless of reputation. – Bill the Lizard Aug 22 '09 at 1:17

I updated the /faq to clarify this point.

you can always comment on your questions and answers, and any answers to questions you've asked, even with 1 rep.


You need 50 rep to post on other people's questions and answers on other people's questions. You can comment on answers to your own questions.

It's 50 rep to comment on SO, 1 to comment at MSO. We have low standards here. We even let TheTXI be a moderator, so it shows you how seriously we take this place.

  • We haven't lowered yet enough to make you a mod, though. – TheTXI Aug 21 '09 at 22:37
  • @TXI: Lord help us all when we stoop to that level. – Eric Aug 21 '09 at 22:38
  • haha, nothing personal. I don't who is the moderator, as long he is fair enough with the power he got. – ariefbayu Aug 21 '09 at 22:41

  • @silent: No worries, just ignore us. @TXI: You get paid in waffles?! DAMMIT, you could never afford me! – Eric Aug 21 '09 at 22:43
