Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

So I've been wondering about this:

On the one hand the question is a record of a problem to be solved. On the other hand, people come to stack overflow for the solution, and since the question requires code with a link in SO, the problem is already on record.

So what do you think?

It is a record for that question – Tamil Selvan Apr 7 '13 at 11:12

No, fork the fiddle instead. The jsfiddle is part of the question. If someone asks you a question and you get a satisfactory answer, you don't go back and change the question, right? Same goes here. Original code in the question, improved/correct code in the answer.

First of all, people should be able to make out the problem without going to the jsfiddle.

Now, the jsfiddle is a record of the problem, which people will want to be able and reproduce, and the existing jsfiddle is perfect for that.

What you can do is create a new jsfiddle with the fix and post that - either as an update to the question or in a comment.
