I often find that i can answer a question partially, can help steer people in the right direction or provide a link with more information. These things however are almost never good enough for a full answer and are better posted as comments.
However, i don't have enough reputation to comment.
Is there any way for someone like me (good enough to help, but not good enough to give large in-dept answers) to earn more reputation so i can comment on questions?
bear in mind that i don't want to go around asking useless questions just to get this number higher.
