What is the difference between "Answer" and "Comment"?

Where am I?

In Tribe you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Eli Najafi, Community Manager at Tribe

An answer is a direct response to a question that sincerely provides the required information.  A comment is different from an answer. If a comment would be appropriate as an answer to the question, then it should be an answer, not a comment.

A comment can be added to a question or an answer.

A comment on a question can be made when:

  • Clarification about the meaning of the question is required.
  • A suggestion or a personal thought about the question needs to be added.
  • Suggesting other question pages that may be relevant.

A comment on an answer can be made when:

  • Thanking or praising the answerer or disagreeing with the answer.
  • Asking for clarification or suggesting ways to improve the answer.

All comments should not be:

Mean, insulting, or confrontational.
