# How to correctly cite a comment in an edit to a question

I currently have an open question on math.stackexchange, where I have receieved a helpful comment towards a solution.

I now wish to edit my original question by adding some further material and citing the helpful comment as the reason for doing so. Is it sufficient to link the comment, or is there a more correct approach?

• Sure, it's "sufficient" to link the Comment, but it might be as much (or more) gratifying to the person who made the helpful suggestion to be mentioned in the revised paragraph. Using the @usernym syntax will bring your revised Question to their attention (given that their Comment still exists on the Question). Some related discussion was here and its links. – hardmath Jan 21 '18 at 0:21
• Okay thanks I didn't know that. – Oscar Jan 22 '18 at 14:26
