I read in a blog post where an author thanked many readers that send messages about typos and tips.
Do authors really like getting these messages? I can imagine getting dozens of messages with the same typo, not to say what happens with more typos.
Do you appreciate typo-reports for older/finished stories or just for the ongoing stories?
Until now I have stayed away from sending such messages (except for one where a typo ruined the html formatting) because I don't know who does and who doesn't appreciate it.
How about tips, tricks, other information that could help a story? Personally I feel that I should leave that to the author, which I am not. Perhaps if some technical piece of text is wrong and i have the correct knowledge, would that be appreciated?
