I just posted to request (as a low-rep user; not a high enough rep to comment) for a feature to ask a user on someone else's question, who posted a good solution, for further elaboration. My post was given a lot of criticism. Essentially, everyone deemed the request as abuse of comments. I understand their concerns, but know that others share the same frustration in addition to myself.
All I would like is a way to ask someone who posted a good answer to elaborate further. Because I can't do this, I don't have a solution when there's a great one that's very close to helping me. If I post to ask the same question, that will be marked as a duplicate.
I was on Stack Overflow and somebody posted a snippet of their code showing a great example that would have helped me quite a bit. But the code didn't show the whole picture, and if I could have had him elaborate on what he answered, I would have fixed my issue a while ago.
Nobody has provided a way to get further help, and I've seen so many posts that ask a similar question but haven't found a solution.
So how can I ask someone who posted a good solution to elaborate further?
