Often, I find myself in the situation that I write part of a proof or things that I tried out when asking a question, so that people that answer have something to work with. After some comments or answers, I often end up changing the majority of the proof, to actually be correct.
My question is; if I want to have that 'new' proof verified, do I edit most of my question, rendering most of the answers/comments invalid, or do I post a potential duplicate?
I usually end up not updating the proof at all, nor posting a new question. When I do update the proof, I feel as though I never really get verification as the post has gone down the list and received answers already.
