What is, here on the Stack Exchange platform, the difference between an answer and a comment? I answered a post (first post) and somebody told me it was a comment not an answer, even though it sounded like an answer to me.

  • The initial question was about "does anyone know a software that can bla bla", I just suggested a software saying "have you tried bla bla". Oct 31, 2015 at 14:03
  • Oh wait a second, yeah I said "have you tried bla bla?" but it was not a real question, maybe this is the problem Oct 31, 2015 at 14:04
  • That's not really a duplicate but it's useful anyway Oct 31, 2015 at 14:08
  • This is my case. Thanks a lot I'm going to fix that! Oct 31, 2015 at 14:25
