For the first 45 minutes or so after you enter a post, there's an edit button in the lower right. After that, you can't edit your own posts, but you can add another post that explains what you'd change about your earlier one. Under certain circumstances, if there's info in a post you decide you really don't want to publish, you can ask a mod to edit it for you.

Yeah ... If it's past the 45 minutes, I would just quote myself and post an explanation of whatever I wanted to update if I felt that I needed to edit or clarify something.
