LQ Answers Discussion Needed


In my opinion, the LQ Answers need to have discussion/comments sections. The reason for this is so that members can give feedback on LQ Answers that are submitted so that the people who post Answers can edit what they post (say, to add more answers to a tutorial). Does anyone agree with me? If so, vote in the above poll and explain your votes.

Can you please explain to me what you mean with LQ Answers? I can't find anything like that in the navigation.

Thanks.

Edit: As far as I can see there is a comments-like function. All tutorials I have seen till now have comments.

They do have a discussion/comments section and always have.

Discussion threads are created when an article/tutorial is approved, not when it's submitted.

These tutorials are written from users for users. Why should there be anyone to approve them?
If there are mistakes in them (which should be easily found, since they are technical articles), it will be mentioned in the comments, and may be the OP corrects them. You always should read the comments section, too.

All article and tutorials are verified by a site editor and are manually approved to ensure accuracy, a minimal level of spelling/grammar checking and to avoid spam and other content issues.
