I'm trying to comment on an answer to a thread that I put a bounty on. Unfortunately I cannot do this because my rep is below 40. This is annoying because I need to clarify something before the bounty award time runs out!! Is there any way to fix this?

  • $\begingroup$ My answer is a short term fix, but in the longer term you could increase you rep by answering some questions. You answered 1 so far... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes I should make more of an effort. Usually the questions I can answer (easyish pde stuff) are either rare or already answered though but will try harder.. $\endgroup$

For now (until/unless SE developers remove this loophole), you can use this trick to comment on the question. The answer author also commented on the question, so you can ping him there.
