Can I edit my comments?

Comments provide a useful record of ongoing conversation on a blog post, forum topic, or other element of the Commons. As a result, the platform values transparency and to emphasize that online discussions and publications are always evolving. Where possible, we encourage you to follow up with a new comment rather than editing existing comments, especially where others may already have responded.

However, we understand that you might wish to fix a typo or make other small revisions to a post or comment. You may edit your comments on forum topics by clicking the “Edit” link above the relevant text. Make the correction you desire and then click the “Submit” button below. The time stamp on your comment will be updated to reflect your modification.

Editing a comment on a blog post requires the site’s admin to edit it on your behalf; contact them directly for help.
