# How can you correct wrong answers from other users?

## If I find a question, which may or may not be marked to be double checkt, with a wrong answer, what am I supposed to do? How can I write a second answer, because socratic isn't showing me a box to write one, only if I have an unanswered question...

That depends...

#### Explanation:

If you're a newcomer to Socratic, you can't edit answers posted by other contributors or answer questions that have already been answered $\to$ see here.

So as a newcomer, if you happen to spot an inaccurate answer, you can let the original contributor know about it by leaving a comment.

If the contributor doesn't reply, you can always @mention me in the comments section--or send me a personal note--and I'll swing by and investigate, i.e. have a word with the contributor about the mistake, edit the answer myself, or delete it, depending on the situation.

As soon as you'll become a trusted member of the community, you will be able to edit answers written by other contributors or post alternative answers.
