My "add comment" button is disabled and I am not able to add comments/give a quick answer to a question, why did this happen, and when will I get the button back?

  • That is strange, you shouldn't (yet) be able to comment on other people's questions but you should be able to on your own question – Richard Tingle Nov 8 '13 at 12:59
  • So for example, on this question of yours you can't comment? – Richard Tingle Nov 8 '13 at 13:00
  • Are you sure you're logged in? – ale Nov 8 '13 at 13:01
  • @AlEverett I just checked, when not logged there's no "add comment" at all so that's not the case. – Shadow Nov 8 '13 at 13:02
  • If you're looking at it on Meta, you only need 1 reputation to do so, while it needs 50 reputation on the main SO site. – Qantas 94 Heavy Nov 8 '13 at 13:02

You can always add comments to your own questions, and to the answers to your questions, but to comment everywhere requires 50 reputation, and you currently only have 8.

See the "Comment Everywhere" privilege for more information.
