To build rep, your answers must be all of the following: factual, cited by linking to another page or photo (with context for the citation), and/or contain a photo of your own that supports the answer (again, with context). My own belief is that scientific citations are worth far more than citations to a random web page. An example would be your answer to the spots-on-tomato-leaf question. Your answer would not have been deleted if you had included links to information that backed up the assertion in the answer. Uncited anecdotal incidents are best left as comments, not answers.

When I clicked on the question mark icon in the stack's search/menu bar, I found the following, which will explain more fully how to be an excellent resource on this site:

  • Plus, a registered user can always see their recently deleted posts, edit them and flag them to have them undeleted.

  • @MyDudeCG Hint: the diamond after a user name indicates a moderator (no god though, thank you very much). You were given good advice on how to write a good answer plus how to proceed from there. The ball is in your court now.
