Reposting when I attempt to edit

Postby tangleweeds » Sat Aug 01, 2020 1:12 am

Help, I'm having something very odd happen, when I try to edit I end up reposting/quoting. Is this an issue in the forum, or with my browser somehow clicking the quote button when I attempt to edit?

Anyway, could you please zap the extra posts I accidentally made in this thread:

Concentrating on Irish (family heritage) & Japanese (my brother lives there)
Ack, wanderlust strikes again! Back to Norwegian, hello Vietnamese!

What did you zap them with? Did you apply it directly to your screen? Did it affect your screen? Did you alter your DNA or change into some kind of mythical creature either prior in preparation or post as an intentional or accidental outcome? Even if momentarily, or you suspected it might have happened or could've been a dream, I'd like to know. I'm doing research you see. See? Are you looking at the research now? Do you see jeff what trying to push a language to C2 can do to you?

Whenever that happens to me I just assume that it's me misclicking, considering how close the "quote" button is to the "edit" one. Not that it happens terribly often nowadays.

Obviously he used the moderator ray-gun. Effective up to 15 metres.

Dammit! Why did I not think of this? Do you think he might've zapped me as well accidentally, thereby putting several hundred thousand of my brain cells into a precarious position? Could he have already done this before? Is he doing it to elimate the competition in light of the upcoming Language Learning Olympics? :?

Yeah, but I don't think even I could mis-click like six times in a row (it left the thread quite a mess). It cleared up after I restarted everything, thankfully. And thank you Jeff, for restoring my ability to delete.
