I came across an old question
and I thought that the answers might benefit from a graphical presentation.
I liked the answer by Jan S. which shares my idea about it; The problem with the discrepancy between the p-value and bootstrapped distribution is similar as the recent question Why do the bootstrap calculated p-value and the confidence intervals seem to contradict each other [R code, specific example]? .
I was thinking about adding some graphics and
I could do this in a new answer
but that thread is already more than 10 years old and adding a new answer to answers that have already been upvoted several times might be an answer that gets less attention. Also one might worry about getting too many answers on a single question, possibly it could be better to just upgrade another answer instead of adding a completely new answer.
I could also add my idea to the already existing answer.
But that answer is already old and the user that created it is not active, and also all the votes that it gathered in the past might not reflect my additions. In addition, people that initially created answers might like to have some personal control over curating how the questions develop (not much the issue here with an inactive user, but possibly problematic in other cases).
I perceive the Q&A format on stackexchange as very individualistic. Sometimes I have the urge to change a current answer rather than adding a new answer that is 'completely my own'. But as explained in the example case above I feel there are several considerations with changing an already existing answer (and I have the feeling that big changes are not very common). For that particular case, how should I handle?
