For some reason I can make comments on my own posts, but then when I try to make comments on other people's posts or anything else for that matter, a blue notification pops up saying I require 50 reputation. Can someone please explain why this is or if there is any way around it? Or perhaps this is just a bug. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much in advance.
This FAQ answer says
All users may leave comments on their own posts and any answers given to their own questions. Users with at least 50 reputation may comment on any post. (There is no reputation requirement to post comments on MSO only; doing so elsewhere, including on other meta sites, requires 50 reputation.)
