Do I need to make a new pull request for every commit?

I am currently going through the Introduction to GitHub course. I want to make sure I understand pull requests. Thanks for your help!

Hello @html-superfan

No, you do not need to make a new pull request for every commit. A pull request is a comparison between two branches. If you make more commits on either of the branches, they will be included in the pull request.

If you start working on a branch and open a pull request, but then decide you need or want to make more changes, you can continue to commit to the branch in the pull request. The pull request will update.

Ok, I just saw the rules on that.
