Due to the restrictions on posting comments, I am often forced into adding an answer and stating that I am unable to add comments. (Here is an example of an 'answer' that is more a comment: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5miz0w254vdok66/Screenshot_2014-10-21-21-11-38.png?dl=0)
Now the theory behind the restrictions on comments is well and good, however many users will not mark an answer as correct, or mark it up- once they get their answer they're happy. Understanding that my 'answers' are never intended as answers, more comments ( thus marking it up or correct is irrelevant) . I'd just like to see the ability to allow me to comment on a question.
I know this'll fall under "off topic", but I would really appreciate anyone advising me of an alternative to adding comments as answer.
