I was trying to add a comment to this question, but found only "suggest improvements" and "show all comments" links; none for adding new comments.

This appears to be a new thing. I'm not 100% sure, because I may be confusing it with other stacks where I can comment and may just not have noticed that I can't do that here. Why though?

I seem to have sufficient reputation to have earned the privilege; have I done something to have it revoked?


The comment button has been renamed in an attempt to encourage more appropriate use of the comments system for the site.

Please see this Meta thread for more information

Experiment running: a comment by any other name

  • Ah ok, I have read that and now I understand. (I do not agree though, but that's something I have commented on at your linked post.) I also note that, here, it is named "add a comment", so that inconsistency just makes it all the more confusing.

  • @KlaymenDK yeah, it's a temporary experiment, not (yet) a permanent change, so they only changed it in the one place. Besides, comments are usually more appropriate on meta, where we discuss issues about the site. Jul 27 '18 at 22:45
