What’s best practice for updating posts in different scenarios?
When is it best to reply rather than to edit one’s own topic or reply; and when and how should one inform of such alterations? I realize that it’s probably best if everyone endeavor to use one’s own discretion. But some basic general guidance would be helpful as a baseline in place of experience.
I am a forum-newbie after all…
Examples to consider:
- Adding information to own topic
- Update current status of own topic (E.g. project developments, changes or additions)
- Correcting mistakes in own topic
- All of the above, but when in reply form
I recently made my first ever blog post on this forum. But as I updated it, and saw a certain effect that may perhaps be exploited to garner more attention and views. This might be by design, but I’m nonetheless wondering if I am doing something wrong. I searched the forum, but couldn’t find any thread on the subject.
