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!

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.
