Some best practices at codechef discussions.

Hi All,

[Sharing my own "comment" from another thread as a topic here to increase audience]

Pardon me for putting it here, but I think most people on this forum don't know the distinction between "Question," "Answer," and "Comments." I feel so, because, in a particular thread there should be one question, then related multiple answers, and numerous comments in comment sections of respective answers.

However, I almost always see comments everywhere. Some even put a comment or a query as an answer. It is a bad practice as it hinders clarity. In the past, I have also made similar mistakes but not now. So just thought to convey it.

Don't just put a comment as an answer for the sake of upvotes. Maybe the admin can include comment upvotes as well in counting total user upvotes to encourage users to put things organized.
