There is an active feature request on meta.SE by one of the Community Managers, proposing to change the add a comment text below each post to something that better conveys the intended usage of comments on Stack Exchange.
Current text (source):
The change on Area 51 uses "suggest improvements" for answers, and "ask for clarification" on questions:
- Change "add comment" under the question to "ask for clarification"
- Change "add comment" under the answer to "suggest improvements"
There is a separate idea to provide a second link below each post, linking to a chat room for more general discussion about the Q & A, but that is out of scope for this meta question.
Thinking just about the "add a comment" link, what do you think would be a good replacement for our site?
Or is this a terrible idea, and we should just leave it as-is?
