I am fairly new to Meta.

I don't know why i am not able to make a comment even though my comment length is more than 15 character.

    Floris is the OP. The @reply will be removed. So your comment is less than 15 chars....I guess.

    Why to add comments like +1? You can say +1 by upvote.

    Because the @molot is kept in that comment, Luv. In the example you give in your post, the @reply would be stripped out. After that stripping out, the comment would not be longer than 15 characters. You can find the details in this post: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/43019/…

  • @Brat Agree. Will keep in mind. Commented Jul 5, 2013 at 14:18
  • @Luv off topic... can you please re-upload your profile picture? There was an issue with imgur not resizing pictures correctly in the past that was recently fixed. You can use this if you like. :) Commented Oct 1, 2013 at 9:22

The very sophisticated artificial intelligence behind the minimum character limit correctly determined that your comment does not contain 15 characters worth of actual content.

The @Floris is not necessary as the owner of the post is always notified and will be stripped out anyway. A +1 and a smiley also barely qualify as content ;-)
