Hi Giford smiley - biggrin

If it's a little one, you can do it in <./>Feedback-Editorial</.> - if it is a big update, it goes into the Update forum <./>RF21</.>

OK, it'll be about 3 or 4 short paragraphs at the end.

Do I resubmit the whole article, and if so do I cut 'n' paste the old article into a new article, or do I modify the version I put into PR?

Gnomon - time to move on

If it is just three or four short paragraphs, then you should submit them at Feedback / Editorial. Be sure to say which entry you want updated, and whether these are additional paragraphs or intended to replace existing ones.

Gnomon - time to move on

If it were many changes throughout the entry, the normal procedure would be:

- Create a new Entry
- Open the Edited Entry using the test feature (put TEST in the URL instead of U just before the entry number)
- Copy the full text from the Edited Entry and Paste it into your new entry.
- Submit the new entry to the Update Forum.

But for a few paragraphs, you don't need to do that.

Giford appears to have smiley - elvised and, after the new series, an update to some of h2g2's Doctor Who articles is needed...
