I've returned to using Kudoz after a break. I'm sure it used to be the case that after posting a question, I could add more information later to the main body of the question. Now it seems I have to use the discussion section. Is that right?

You can add a note to your answer. At the bottom of the answer you posted, there is such option:

"You may add a note to your explanation:

Note: If you add a note, your answer will be repositioned based on the current time

Add note"

Best wishes,

Yes, I know that if you answer a question you can do this, but if you are the one who asks the Kudoz question, it seems that you can't then add information to your own question, other than through the discussion area.

I don't like the current set up! Oct 25, 2009

Personally, the funky little box that is available to the ASKER and the answerers is very "uncomfortable". I don't understand why the text is centered and I can't figure out a way to insert paragraph breaks, which are sometimes very helpful for making a point clearer or for separating a url. I wish they'd restore the asker's window to its former appearance.

From past forum discussions, it seems many people don't like the present setup, but it seems to have been set in stone...

The discussion section is obviously useful for discussion, but not for monologuing!
