  • I just came here to ask the same! I can't see a "post an answer" area on protected question requiring minimum 10rep. But I have more than 100. I don't understand what's going on.

What is a “protected” question?

Users with 10 or more reputation can answer a protected question. However, the +100 account association bonus is ignored for this check, so you must have earned 10 or more reputation on that specific site to answer a protected question

The notice tries to convey that by saying "on this site" but I can see how that isn't clear.

  • Yeah I was thinking this was the case. But in my opinion this is clearly a bug (i.e definitely not clear). May 22, 2016 at 15:57
