So I've made a mistake or realized I was wrong. How do I fix it?
Admit the mistake and apologize to the wronged party. That might seem overwhelmingly simple, but it goes a long way.
That apology can be easy in relatively minor infractions, like used a picture in excess of the stated limits, or accidentally used language not appropriate for the rating. In those cases, the most important thing to do is not repeat it. Take the picture down right away, and watch your language in the future. Apologize to the room for the disruption.
For more serious cases, email the room host, fess up to what you have done, and ask forgiveness. A sincere and well thought out apology will go a long way, and usually inclines authority figures to take some consideration into whatever punishment may be assigned.
