    In my opinion I think they should've deleted all those lost posts and threads before fixing the edit bug because a whole lot of double posts and unwanted threads have returned.

    We've figured out a different way to do it since then that doesn't cause that.

    Like we said, bear with us: things could get a little weird for the next little while.

    EDIT: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1733956/terminator-themed-faction-list

    EDIT2: O_O!!! It no longer eats posts with BGG links! YAY!

    Used to always have this issue more often than not right after posting a fairly long point (a few paragraphs and atleast 5-7 sentences in each one) and then i edit the post immediately and save, the post disappears.

    it is worth noting that immediately after posting, you try post again and that one disappears immediately, like it was never posted so i have to leave the forum for something like an hour before i can come back and post again.

    long term observation of the issue from my end.

    edit: Forgot to add that you edit the post immediately, because if you leave it a minute after you posted, the chances of the post remaining with the edited content are usually higher when you are done with it.

    I have the same problem right now. Haven't been able to post for two weeks. I consider this a test to see if this post gets through.

    Edit: Ok, seems the problem has been fixed now.

    We've since implemented some additional fixes that should take care of the edit monster for good. if he still shows up let us know

    Seeing how insidious and relentless the edit monster is, causing one to develop eating disorders even, I'd say it's a 'she.' :p

    In all seriousness, yeah, thx for looking into/fixing this. BMR used to just put the responsibility on Vanilla (which is where it officially still is, of course); but I am nonetheless grateful Cryptic took it upon themselves to delve into this, and seek a resolution to this most egregious bug.

    The fix was made by Vanilla. We just provided them with the information they needed to track down the problem.

    Still took effort to escalate the issue, and that effort is greatly appreciated.

    I remember when this issue was first brought to light those who had encountered these issues were basically called liars. Good times.

    I've not been able to post for years as none of my posts show up (well they show up to me, but not to anyone else). Never got around to creating another account. Perhaps this will fix the problem.

    Edit: nope my post is still not visible to anyone but myself @darkbladejk @ambassadorkael#6946

    Not completely related but just a quick shout out and thank you to @peterconnorfirst @baddmoonrizin @tunebreaker and everyone else on that thread who helped me get a similar issue resolved that stopped me posting for a very looong time.

    Or as a friend of mine on another board used to say APOTS-All Part Of The Service ;)
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    A late thank you - as a non eloquent one who was affected a lot by the editing monster, it's very appreciated that you took the time and efforts to gather details and forward the issue and that it was taken cared of as a result.


    In a bit off topic remark, though the issue was mentioned before in this context, I'd add something regarding double posts - sometimes those are created automatically and accidentally by some kind of a technical issue I am not familiar with (possibly an almost non responsive computer or high latency/any connectivity issue, but no real idea here)
    It's not malicious/intended in such case but please delete such when you see such if it's not too much troubles (or if you can automate such safely without awaking the edit monster) - I'd prefer it so my accidental double posts would be deleted, automatically or not, but OFC it's OK if it can't or won't be done.

    Had a post eaten by the edit monster, and now I can't even repost it. So I'm testing here

    Sorry to bug you again but there seems to be yet another one having trouble to post:
    I was just CURIOUS, you understand. Is it possible, to still buy a LS, to operate the STO 'program', even if you are having difficulty when it comes to dealing with the 'FORUMS'?

    He tried to start a thread which is invisible for the rest of us here:

    Roughly 9:30 am got hit with that "edit monster".
    Specifics if needed: Posting in the Tzenkethi battle zone thread(announcement). I did a double edit. Correcting 'out weight' to 'out weigh'. Then to 'outweigh'.

    Totally worth it. Especially knowing somewhere there a tab of spam correctly edited.

    Typical. And rather befitting, what with the Tzenkethi battle zone being broken and all, that the thread about the Tzenkethi battle zone should now appear broken too. :wink:
