Should somebody remove the "edit to add" part of somebody else's question?
Hmmm.... Yeah, I see the consensus is to not include "edit to add" in any updates. Except when an edit invalidates existing answers. My edit invalidated an existing answer along with a few clarifying questions left as comments, so a person could argue it either way. Right now, I prefer to leave "edit to add" within my post. Anyhow, thanks for the link to the consensus on that.

What factors would allow people here to acquire more than 200 reputation points per day?
Too bad we can't spread our points out over several days. I just earned over 800 points in the last 3 days, but can't receive them. :-( Wish I could spread those points out over future days where I earn less than 200.

Should questions like "Should I watch/read ..." be closed as opinion based?
@NKCampbell Is there anything here that implies somebody conflated Clarke's book with Kubrick's film?

@Randal'Thor I read the answers to the "Should I skip the miniseries in the new BSG?" question. The answers are mostly opinion based without lots of supporting information from the BSG series. Also, the answers are diametrically opposed - either yes or no - with little explanatory reasoning. This example clearly shows what opinion-based questions are like. :-( scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/4707/…

@Randal'Thor Isn't that like when people talk about which order to watch Star Wars movies, somebody always suggests not watching The Phantom Menace? Clearly there is some overlap of those two questions when somebody asks "what order?", so it's a topic where we can have well informed and reasonable disagreement. That said, the question as plainly stated is "Should I skip ...?" That makes it equivalent to other questions which are "Should I watch ...?"

This answer is so well written, that there's only one part I disagree with. That's the part on whether recommendation questions are bad. I'll elaborate on that in my own answer. :-) And the first example I listed, "Should I skip the miniseries in the new BSG?" is basically a recommendation question, not a "which order" question.
