May I request to have a feature something like this?
Sometimes when I post tutorials I get many responses BEFORE I post it.
This is really irritating.
I wrote a tutorial and till then many replies had been posted like "wait let us answer"
And then I saw a mistake, but I couldn't post it again because a LOT OF replies were posted like 'good tutorial' and all.
I don't have a mod right now, so I need this feature to implement in the near future.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We post tutorials and most of the time some random replies come before we write it out. Our tutorial needs to stay at the top, as that is the only point of the post.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You may flag it for a moderator's attention. I often clear up irrelevant posts myself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I will. Report abuse, requesting "Clearing irrelevant comments".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, they were not really irrelevant. But, they posted it before I posted my tutorial. So, that doesn't really deserve a report.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If they are not really irrelevant why do you want to delete it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well because my tutorial must be on top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3They were indeed somewhat irrelevant. I have fixed it now. For future reference there are couple of solution for this: (1) You can use the edit feature to edit the question. (2) Report abuse/Flag to invite a moderator's attention.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and does editing questions delete the irrelevant comments? o.O

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No, but it will bring your tutorial to the top. Obviously, you will loose the corresponding medals. The flag is same as report abuse.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Really? Editing question = losing medals?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let me try. I'd message you a link to test it with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3When you edit the question to post your tutorial in it, the previous post of your tutorial as replies will be unnecessary. Deletion of which results the medals to evaporate into the system.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Although, you can avoid it by keeping atleast one reply in that thread.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Another possible solution: Write the tutorial in some sort of text editor. Type up an intro to put into the question box, post the question, and immediately copy/paste the tutorial into the first reply.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@KingGeorge's suggestion is what we use to write up release notes (which are similar in that way). That means we can post the question and immediately post the reply with the actual notes.
