This is what I do: typos and small mistakes, I correct,
without annotation. Same for additional text, but only
very shortly after submission.
Any larger changes I post as a reply to my own post - and
never with a bold update. Why? Because a reply will go into
the newest nodes list, while an update doesn't. If you
update a post I already read, I probably never will see your
update. But if you reply, I will at least be made aware of
it, and if the thread interests me, I'll read it.
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
Please read these before you post! —
Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
- a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
