@floris_v: no offence intended, We are faced with a new learning curve in Discourse.
AskBot used in the site previous version made a clear distinction between comments and solutions (answers). We need this discipline here too. The links under the question allow explicitly to chose between “answer” and “comment” significance. However, I feel that “answer” may be taken too literally by newcomers used to forums where posts are ordered chronologically.
I don’t know whether “answers” are sorted chronologically or are weighted according to their marks (upvotes). So we should probably think twice when choosing betwen “answer” and “comment”.
Probably the links should be reworded as “Solution” and “Comment/Discussion”.
@Mike Kaganski: what do you think of this proposal?
