What are the best practices when editing your own answer (for whatever reason, the question became clearer, a comment made you realize a mistake, you had a new idea, did some testing, etc). Here are some options
- Delete the old and now invalid prior answer
- Add a new or edited section along with a prior section
- Re-edit the answer without any indication it changed.
What do people think is the clearest way to make a revision to an answer. Also, does it make sense to add a comment (if there is a comment thread) pointing out you edited the answer.
I've engaged in all of these and I still feel uncomfortable about them. It would be nice if there was a community standard.
If you do put an edit section in (as I did here) where should it go -- at the start of the message or at the end?
