Yes. You can log in to your account and navigate to the solution you would like to change, then use the "Edit" button in the top corner.
Remember, if you make changes to a solution, they will not be published immediately, as the new version will need to undergo the revision process again before publishing.

How much information do I need to provide about my solution?
Pleaseprovide as much detail as possible, and include any multimedia files such as video, audio or images if you have them. As a minimum, we recommend submitting a written document about your project and at least one image.
I sent you a solution and it has not been published. Is something wrong?
Each solution is undergoes a vetting and review process, which includes editing, so it can take some time before your solution appears. You can see the progress of your solution through the vetting process by signing in to your account. If there are any problems with your solution or if we need more information, we will contact you.
