When progress is made after asking a question I have been editing my original post and adding progress at the bottom. Is this the best practice or is there a better way? Would comments be better?

-Thanks

If you're adding more information about the problem, just update the original post. If you're providing a solution, make it an answer. If someone else leaves a comment asking for clarification, respond in a comment and update the post with the new information.

Update 1

Update 2
Yep, I dig it!
