I updated a bunch of links to documentation webpages and didn't mean to flood the front page with those updates. Is there a way to do that more silently? Sorry about that!

It might have been preferred to roll out those edits over a slightly longer period of time; however, it is good to have links and materials updated.

There is no way to update the contents of the post and not bump it (besides some exotic tag-only manipulations available only to moderators in a limited # of situations). While it is sometimes an undesirable effect, this is also an essential feature for community moderation.

Moreover, Hot Today and Hot Week links still work, even if the front page is flooded with the edits.
