Trouble editing posts

Recommended Posts

Leedle-Lee

Hey, all. Lately, when I go back to edit my post (usually just to add something), it's been giving me this error message:

 

5OOc1Cw.png?1

 

Has anybody else been experiencing this?

To prevent this, I wait for at least a minute since the post creation or previous edit before I click the save button.

 

After you get this error message, the best course of action is to click OK, copy the contents of the post into the clipboard, refresh the page and edit the post again. The edit usually goes through the 2nd time around.

Yes, this has been happening to me sporadically (and not infrequently) as long as I've been here. I'm not sure why it happens from a technical standpoint, and haven't been able to pinpoint a pattern as far as when it does or does not happen, but as @Sage Raven Domino said, my strategy is just to copy my edited post content, reload the page, and then redo the edit. Usually, it will work the second time; occasionally it takes two or three tries, but eventually it's always gone through for me. (Incidentally, though, this has occurred at times when I'm, say, editing a days-old post to correct a typo I noticed—so I'm not sure that it's just a matter of time elapsed.) 🤷‍♀️

Happens to me a lot lately. I have to refresh and try again.

Hm, curious. It's never happened to me before, but maybe it had something to do with mod permissions? 🤔

That's an interesting thought. 🤔

Now I'm wondering—other admods, has this happened to you?

Yep, its annoying, especially when you press submit too quickly, and then you notice the words you wrote, are full of spelling errors.

 

I get this error quite alot on this board.

It's not just me then.

 

Usually, if I refresh the page, it then lets me post the edit (which often means I have to type it anew, unless I Copy-Paste).

It seems to be completely random. It's happened on more than one occasion, and not just with this post. Like the others have said, it usually goes away if I refresh or close, then re-open the tab.

I can't remember it ever happening to me. Maybe some people need to run for mod... ;)

Now, there's an incentive. I didn't think modship would quite be my cup of tea, but maybe I should rethink that once I've been here long enough... :P
Next time nobody is stepping forward, just put that up in the election post and the nominations will start flooding in.

I just got out of that frying pan. :P And @firewallflower Dave is right, I think when the time comes you should give it a shot. I feel like you would be a great mod. :)

Side note: This doesn't seem to happen on mobile--just on PC.

:blush: Ah, thank you!! Not sure if I agree, and there are also logistical obstacles, but I suppose we shall see. All else aside, I've got a few months before it's even an option. I appreciate the encouragement, though!

(And ah, but when you got out of the frying pan, you didn't know at the time you were getting into the fire of editing glitches, now did you? 😜)

... And it's happened to me on Mac, Linux, and Samsung (phone). The mystery continues.

Usually refreshing the page will let you edit your comment if you saw an error, or want to update it. I get it sometimes too.

I go in to edit it, write what I want, and copy it  then paste it after refreshing the page.
