How do you chose when to comment or answer
Posted on 2000-02-15
I have been looking around the questions and answers in this site, and there seems to be a lot of confusion as to when to propose an answer and when to just comment.
In some situations the question has been puerly answered in comments, why was no answer proposed, surely the questioner would get a quicker correct answer?
Also if these comments are made to avoid locking the question, why isn't the site rearanged to allow say 3 different proposed answers and let the questioner chose which is the most fitting to the question?!
