I want to ask something like the following question, but am unsure of its framing:
How do you track/incorporate errata in relation to printed rulebooks without having to memorize, or constantly check against, the errata?
I bought myself a shiny new rulebook for a relatively new system and, of course, there's already a full document of errata!
In order to make this easier for myself, I sat down with a pen and sticky notes to mark places in the book that have been errata'd. I found that the pen tended to smudge, and don't want to wait for each individual sticky note to dry as I make my way through the document.
Is there a good way to point to errata within a rulebook, without risk of damage? I'm essentially looking for methods that:
- Incorporate short errata directly into the book
- Summarize longer errata to incorporate directly into the book
- Mark places where the errata document needs to be referenced
- Do so in a legible, or easily intelligible, manner
- Do all of this with minimal damage to the book itself and not diminish the books longevity. (Smudging, page wear, stickers that begin to peel, &c.)
The Ask a Question page told me after I typed in my proposed title that this question may be too subjective, so I decided to come here to Meta first. I feel I can't get it less subjective, or less like a material recommendation (as recommendations are off-topic), but do feel like this would be valuable information. Is it okay to ask as-is?
I haven't found any related questions, and can't find anything like it with a google search. Perhaps my google-fu is failing me.
