First, I am new to this site so I want to clarify some stuff.
I stumbled upon a question in Engineering Stack Exchange (ESE).
Now, I tried to answer the question: Note that I cannot verify his design code or his location so I provided a generic answer.
I had not given that answer just to gain points, but because I have first hand experience in what he wants to do.
Unbelievably, my answer was taken to be a comment and was transferred into the comment by a moderator.
As I search for the meaning of answer in the dictionary, I found the following:
Definition of answer
- a: something spoken or written in reply to a question - "His answer surprised us."
b : a correct response - "knows the answer"
- a reply to a legal charge or suit: plea; also defense
- something done in response or reaction - "His only answer was to walk out."
- a solution of a problem - "More money is not the answer."
- one that imitates, matches, or corresponds to another - "The show is television's answer to the newsmagazines."
I also checked the site when to use comments and i found this link.
Can someone point out what I am missing or doing wrong? I just don't want to "earn" reps but to help also the community since it helped me a lot too. Thank you.
