I tried to edit this thread on Stitcher's Niche, and after putting in all the added text, nothing showed. Refreshed, re-edited, refreshed, reeditied at LEAST five times and still no sign of the new text. But I did get this cute message:
"The content on this page has either been modified by another user, or you have already submitted modifications using this form. As a result, your changes cannot be saved."
Another user? Shouldn't be allowed unless CMS are modifying threads behind my back, right? And yes, I jhad submitted changes but theya ren't THERE! Oh, they were in teh editing box but they don't show up in the thread when posted. And that has been for nearly 30 minutes now...
So I tried a new post to the thread and that took.
Moved on to my daily edit of another tutorial thread here, and it worked. Ahh, says I to myself (I talk to myself a lot these days when posting to iVillage), it's fixed! YAY!
So I moved on to my last edit of the day here, and Lo and behod, NADA, ZILCH, NOTHING took! Just like in the Yarn thread. So I moved to the second post in the thread, the one where two times before this month, I have parked edits when the OP wouldn't take them. A test post took and it still shows in the thread BUT it doesn't show in the editing block and I get this message when I try to edit THAT second post:
" You are not authorized to access this page."
GREAT, first I am dealing with some pahantom "someone else" and now I'm not allowed access?
So I had to add a thrid post to that thread adn it took.
No two edits behave the same. How in blazes is one supposed to figure out these boards when you can't even count on cosnistant glitches?
OH, and its so SLOW this morning, or rather this afternoon as I've been on here for an hour and gotten very little in return for my efforts...
