Once you add a comment, you'll see this note in the comment byline: 'Need to fix typos? Edit.' You can click 'Edit' to bring up a form where you can fix any typos and resubmit your comment. There's a timer on the edit page to let you know how much time you have to fix things up.
As always, if you want to fix something past the five minute window—or if you want to remove your comment completely—please let us know via the contact form. The five-minute edit window should be used for small changes. We track the changes on our end, and we'll be keeping an eye on how folks use this feature.
Please let us know about any bugs you run into here. If you can include your browser and OS versions that'll be a big help.
