People with write access to a repository can edit comments on issues, pull requests, and commits. Organization owners, team maintainers, and the comment author can edit a comment on a team page.
It's appropriate to edit a comment and remove content that doesn't contribute to the conversation and violates your community's code of conduct or GitHub's Community Guidelines.
When you edit a comment, note the location that the content was removed from and optionally, the reason for removing it. The edited dropdown at the top of the comment contains a history of edits showing the user and timestamp for each edit.
- Navigate to the comment you'd like to edit.
- In the upper-right corner of the comment, click .
- In the comment window, delete the content you'd like to remove, then type
[REDACTED]to replace it.
- At the bottom of the comment, type a note indicating that you have edited the comment, and optionally, why you edited the comment.
- Click Update comment.
