After you edit a sequence you have to send your changes for review to an editor. There will always be an expert who checks your comments / corrections. There is also a discussion board about changes, so they generally give feedback and correct your additions. They also ultimately decide about publishing your changes, so you can savely edit a sequence and let editors have a look at it, guess that's the whole purpose of this procedure. Not sure what you do for term corrections, maybe cite the program / link the code in sequence comments? I'm sure you can find more information about editing in the FAQ of oeis.
