Friend, new to SE, contributing to WebApps just sent me a screenshot, that shows, that reputation updates are reflected on general counter (user bar at top) but not in comments mechanism:

enter image description here

Is this a bug or something, that is wanted / required?

EDIT: This is of course temporal. After refreshing the page, limitations to writing comments were removed and comment could be written.

  • what's your friends' user id or profile URL? – Sathyajith Bhat Jan 15 '14 at 10:20
  • Well, I have to ask him, because he sent this me over an e-mail. But, this is of course temporal thing -- after refreshing the page, limitations to writing comments were all gone. – trejder Jan 15 '14 at 10:23

The decision whether this error is rendered is made on the server when the add comment link is rendered (it has an additional data-reg="true" attribute), since it also depends on other things that would require an additional round-trip to the server each time a user clicks this button - which we don't want.

After you've reached the required rep you need to refresh the page (so it's rendered again) to be able to add comments.
