    Empty posts when editting?

    I was sure someone would already have raised this as people often joke about it but I can't find a post about it?

    Basically you know what I'm saying - you edit a post and you get an empty box instead of your post - seems most common where the post is a reply - kinda annoying, any ideas on a fix?

    Yeah, I actually noticed that earlier. I just thought it was because I was editing really long posts

    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    I have the same problem, also I edited my first post, it came up empty, I submitted the edited version and I got a double post :/

    Just to bump this up: This is still a problem and it seems to increase in frequency as well.

    Last time we discovered the issue is related to special characters like diaeresis for example.
    Let's test:
    <-Causes issues
    <-Causes issues
    <-Causes issues
    <-Causes issues
    ^ <-Does not cause issues
    ` <-Does not cause issues
    ™ <-Does not cause issues

    Keep getting this, I ctrl+@ crrl+c as a countermeasure when making larger or tag heavy posts.

    I get it too sometimes. Update the editor plugin?

    When editing, remember that you can copy the text before clicking on edit. Downside: all formatting will be lost (like bold and stuff).

    It seems to happen quite often when quoting multiple people. Or perhaps I remember it more when it happens in those cases as it's more of a hassle to get the post reconfigured then. Either way, I can confirm that this still happens every now and then.

    This is happening to me without using any special characters or quoting.

    It's me, I've decided to scrap your post, if you are going to edit messes like that you really ought to start over.

    If I hurt you, it's because I care.
