comment How to handle player knowledge when they fumble a knowledge roll
@Glenn I've updated your answer with 4e's actual content on the topic, and eliminated the 3.5e stuff. (I cannot stress enough: you should avoid answering 4e with 3.5e material like you should avoid answering a chess matter based on checkers.) Could you check it to see if it still conveys what you'd like it to convey, and edit it if necessary?

Added information on 4e's actual rulings. It doesn't have a rule against this stuff. Removed the 3.5e stuff, as 3.5e is irrelevant to 4e.

edited to knead the 'edit for clarification' into the rest; this part isn't part of the question though. looking for for ways to incorporate a stat is already covered, but wanting us to build a list of multiple different ways would make this a list question (which is bad and would be closed).; edited tags

the edit note is more appropriately left in this edit summary field. i've edited out some details that should exist in your other question instead, since they're irrelevant to the P->AP issue.

this is asking about system rules, for a specific D&D system, and a specific version. it needs a system tag, and there's no point to it being systemless or versionless.

comment What is the definition of “hitting” when a move misses but still deals damage
Good answer. Might be worth noting in your last paragraph: hit points in D&D 4e don't necessarily represent physical harm; they can also represent fatigue and other factors. Dealing damage even if you missed could be interpreted as the stress of merely getting away from the attack! (You've probably seen a movie scene where someone has a beast snapping its jaws at them, and they have to put all their strength into keeping it just far enough away.)
