Is it okay to edit the question to include the improved code?
I would like to do so for the following reasons:
- To share the improved code with others
- To show the answering persons that I take their feedback seriously
- To make sure that I understood (and implement) the feedback in the right manner
I understand that the original code must remain untouched otherwise it would invalidate the question.
But how do I handle code review iterations? Do I have to create a new question for each new revision?
In my opinion, writing code is an iterative process. I ask for a review, I consider the feedback and implement it, and then what? Shall I open a new question for the next review round or is it okay to update the question with the improved code (like suggested here)?
