Please note that this video is based on an older interface for Q&A. The interface changed to what is shown in the second bullet on this page.The explanations of the answer and comment options -- and when to use them -- remain the same.
You want to respond to a question -- but you aren't sure whether to leave a "comment" or "submit your answer." You aren't even sure why you have to choose.
This Tip in a Minute video is meant to help clear up some of the confusion with the new Questions & Answers solution.
Please note: As acknowledged in the video, we have received feedback from the community requesting that we move away from the "answers" and "comments" options -- and back to a single "reply" choice. We are discussing this recommendation. For now, however, we need to help people use the current solution. That's the purpose of this video.
