Sooo I just noticed this a while after I made my Wukong guide, that other guide authors put a section that logged when changes were made to their guide. Now, a ton of changes have been made to my guide and I'd like to share with readers those changes so that they're not left in the dark. But I can't remember all of the changes and when they took place.

Do you think I should add in a board anyways and give any updates that made from now on?

If you felt I contributed and stuff, can I have a (+1 Rep =3)?

It's not really needed, it's mostly just there to tell people if you had to make changes due to nerfs or buffs, or any other reason. But some people won't read it anyway so yea.

It's not needed, I only really had one becuase my guide wasn't finshed when I hit the create button. I don't think it's needed not a lot will read it anyway but, it does help you figure out what you did a while ago so you might wanna update!

It is entirely up to you. A change log isn't necessary by any means, but it's nice to know how recently the author has updated their guide. For returning readers, they can use it to check the changes they've missed or additions that they can now read.

Not many people read it I'm sure, but it doesn't hurt to have it in there. Just stick it at the end of your guide so it doesn't bother the people who don't want to see it.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

Go for it. I put one in my guide because people really like seeing that you update your guide. Even more they love seeing you update your guide in regards to their criticism. And giving them credit to the idea/section is always appreciated.

The average person who views your guide will not care/look at the change log. Does it matter to them that X champ's mana cost for Y was Z in the past and is now Z?

No, its the present. What do you really gain by looking at a change log besides information that will not apply in a current game scenario? Nothing.

I find it rather useless, if the author has not recently updated their guide the freshness will drop anyways. And quite frankly I don't care if the author has fixed a spelling mistake, added a new section or whatever.

Most people include guide changes in their change log, not patch notes. There are some exceptions of course, but most of the time it's filled with guide updates.

Yeah, I was mostly planning on using it for major changes like....a build remake or additions to different sections. I give credit there, but I actually have a separate section just for acknowledgment ;3

I think for my Wukong guide I'll stick to posting major updates in my blog and for my Shyvana guide, I'll keep the change log and see which works out better.
