Uh-oh! Q&A bug.........

By hippiekarl ·
Tags: Off Topic
My answer to the posted-yesterday question about 'computer slowdown' got cut in two, and only the second half posted (3 times). I just left a mess over there trying to get the first half to show up. When I clicked 'edit' each time to attempt to reinsert the missing text, IT WAS THERE, but as soon as I hit 'submit', it posted without it again. You have the missing text, but it just won't commit to the page. I even tried choosing a generic synonym for 'YouTube' (which I'd mentioned as a cache-hog) in case that was causing a 'spam-alarm' or something, but no go.
Has this happened to anyone else answering a question in the last day? HAL 9000? wizard57? (I know you two get to most of them first)....

Just like that

by hippiekarl In reply to Get Firefox's ALL there. I've been off FF for a couple of years, but I deduce now that the issue may be MS's (ie IE...I couldn't resist typing that), not TR's. Now I'm going to find Ghostery and a few others I used to use with this browser.....

Thank you for the interest and advice, Michael.

I do not see these issues, IE 8.0.6001.18702. Not often that I use IE and was hoping to see just what you have seen, but it does appear to work properly with regard to My Stuff.

Most times I am on a Ubutnu box using Firefox, something wierd is going on from your place, but glad you can get to see what you need now.

Now lets see how long it lasts before we break it again.

Though I must admit that the no Tiny URL is a real pain. Looks like I'm going to have to go and redo several Questions like this so I can post them again. I used to just Bookmark them and Copy & Paste then as an answer, see my response to this question. . :_|;discussion-table

Those are still working... so old ones aren't affected (don't mess with the chtonians)

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Thanks Taminkins

You should add that question to your own favourites, then you can grab the urls from behind the tinyurls whenever you need them... sort of like a bookmark, only more cumbersome

You've got that one right. I gave up half way through converting everything to the full URL's.

Way too complicated for little old Dumb me.
