So, I made my first request thread yesterday. In doing so, I pasted some pre-written summaries into the spoiler tags. However, for one of the plots (there are only two at the moment), I pasted the wrong summary. It may have been weird for some, since it didn't match the theme I listed for it to assess interest. I've since corrected it.

My question is this: I'd like to announce what the mistake was, and that it's been corrected. Just in case anybody read it and in their confusion, moved on. Can/should this be done in a new post, or as an edit/note in the main post?

Either would be fine. Since you changed a fair bit of material, sounds like, it would qualify as a 'substantive' bump.  After only 24 hours, though, with no other posts in the thread?  It might be 'neater' to just put a bold note at the top of the original post.

Thank you :) half of the question, if implicitly, was about the etiquette of it as well. And your answer covered both.
