how can I insert a comment to a question without answering and proposing a translation? I refer to those comments that appear in the question box(i.e. "can you specify a little more?")...Thanks

Minimum numberof points Oct 9, 2005

Hi Galileo,

If I remember rightly you need a minimum number of points (which I believe is 20) before you can use the "ask the asker" box.

See the following thread.

Cheers,
Andy

The 20-point rule Oct 9, 2005

doesn't make much sense to me. I don't think a new member should be precluded from entering a comment. New members can answer questions, can't they?

The idea behind it Oct 9, 2005

Hi Trudy

The idea behind it is that you must know well how KudoZ work before using that option. I remember that once Henry asked whether anyone was against that restriction and, as 20 KudoZ didn't seem that much neither, the minimum remained unchanged.
