Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

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
I still like to see them like this.

Update 2
Yep, I dig it!
