I was having an issue and found a question that matched it: Whatsapp Web: "Phone Not Connected"

However, I've now solved this issue on the newest version of Android and would like to post my answer. But when I scroll to the bottom of the page there is no answer box. The answer box shows up on other webapps questions. What's going on here and why am I not allowed to answer the question?

That question was autoprotected by the system for having 3 spam/non-answer posts added to it back in 2017. The reason the answer box wasn't available was that the system requires you to have 10 reputation on a site (reference, this does not include your association bonus) to answer a protected question.

That being said, there's no reason to continue to protect it, so I have unprotected it. Thanks for adding your answer.

  • Just realised the detail you've included in brackets is somewhat hidden away. "Once you’ve earned 10 reputation points from participating on this site." Guess I'll just have to find some questions to post answers to....
