In my review queue, I have been seeing a lot of questions and comments put as answers. How can we make it clear were these things should go?

  • $\begingroup$ @dmckee I have flagged him. This is not even his 3rd time doing it, however. I think that there needs to be a better way to explain it. $\endgroup$ – Jimmy360 Jun 3 '15 at 0:30

  • $\begingroup$ I should say that DavidZ and I have both been on low duty factor lately due to interference from "real" life, so flag handling has suffered a bit. But it will all get dealt with. $\endgroup$ – dmckee Jun 3 '15 at 0:33

I don't think there's a good way to do it. All we can really do to prevent "mis-posting" is expose new members to instructions telling them what should and shouldn't be posted as an answer, but most of them aren't going to read instructions. I think the best we can do in practice is stay on top of the moderation: watch out for non-answers in the queues and while browsing questions, and flag them as such.
