hey hey, quick question...when you edit a problem you've submitted, there's a thing towards the bottom that says "leave a note"...if I type something in there and click "submit", what does that do? Also, in solution-editing land, there's the thing for adding a "solution note"...what is that? What are these crazy notes??

Re: notes?

When your problem gets into the top ten in the queue (this could take a little while), journeymen and above can vote TU or TD (Thumbs up or thumbs down), or they can leave a comment such as "I think the wording in the second sentence is ambiguous."
If the problem is good, and when everything is fixed, they will vote TU. If the problem is not good, they will vote TD.
You can leave a note if you have a question, like "How do I make the spacing work. It all runs on the same line." And someone will tell you or fix it for you (if it's in the top 10).
As for solution notes, I'm not sure.

Re: notes?

That's it -- a note is a message for the future; when the problem gets seen by voters, your message will appear to them (and theirs will appear to you).

Re: notes?

Thanks guys...although anyone know about the difference between problem notes and solution notes?

Re: notes?

Problem notes are there while the problem is being discussed in the queue, and disappear when the problem is posted.

Solution notes appear after the problem has been posted, and before its solution is made public.
