I joined a community today because I had something unique to add to a question. There already was a decent answer, but mine was talking about points not mentioned in it.
While my answer was a bit short, as I could bring my point across in one sentence, came to the same conclusion as the other answer and gave it credit, it did very much stand at it's own. However a mod seemed to disagree and changed it to a comment while (presumably - it could have been someone else) also giving me a down vote.
It is my understanding that posts that contain new information directly relating to the question and can stand on their own should be posted as answers and not as comments to other answers.
So what should I have done in this case? Should I have commented? Should I have said nothing considering I don't have the reputation?
I realize why I can't write comments with low reputation, however I don't understand why I can't use my reputation from other communities to do it.
So that you can judge for yourself, here's the question in question with my comment attached to the answer, this is not supposed to put blame on the mod. Did Narendra Modi tweet this?
