comment The etiquette of updating News Posts - Help please!
Do the posts have visible dates on them? That is, can you tell by looking when it was originally posted?

comment Should embedded figures/images be placed before or after they are referred to in text?
@NikhilMahajan that's a good way to put it, yes. If the reader ever has a "wait, what?" moment because of the order you presented things in, see if you can fix that. (Well, unless you're deliberately doing that to prompt a teaching moment, but that's probably not common.)

comment How can I encourage more comments on my blog?
Marketing is on-topic here. Adding the part from your comment about "ways of writing that encourage comments" would also be good.

comment Any way for revisions to show up in a different color from an older saved .fdr to a newer saved .fdr in version 7 of FinalDraft?
What software are you using? I don't recognize the .fdr extension or the reference to version 7 -- which, granted, means I probably can't help answer your question, but the more information you include, the easier it will be for others to help you. Thanks.

comment Using species from another novel, in my novel, copyright infringment?
@Jasper that's a good point; I was reading the question as being about independently publishing work using these species, as opposed to working through authorized channels, but it's good to note that sometimes there are authorized channels.

comment Software for keeping track of book edits?
Do you need to keep track of just your own edits, or do you also need to track feedback from other sources (reviewers or whatever) and whether you've addressed it yet?

comment How can I weave variety in this passage?
Welcome to Writers. Could you possibly edit in some pointers to examples of what you mean? (Links if they're online, citations otherwise. Short excerpts are also fine.) That'll help us understand what you mean by "weaving variety". Thanks.

comment Is it correct to use acronyms in a bio or should I omit it?
Eduardo, I've made a major edit to your question to try to make it fit our site. You've been editing your sample text, but as I said before we don't do critiques of writing samples. I took the question in your title and the kinds of edits you've made as guidance. Please take a look, and if you're ok with this edit I'll reopen the question. Just leave me a comment. Thanks.

comment Potentially risky subject in my script
First, whether you should do this depends very much on what you are trying to accomplish with your story, which you haven't stated (at least in the post; I didn't read all the comments). Second, I agree with Neil: this is very close to brainstorming or a discussion question; please check out our tour and then edit this to better align with site scope. Thank you.

comment How short can a poem be until it can no longer be a poem?
What makes those poems? (I hope you'll respond with an explanatory edit, not comments.)
