Issue with submitting an article to Wiki RRS feed

Answers

  • Thanks for contributing to the Wiki. I have also seen errors lately when editing Wiki articles. There is a long timeout, then I get the following message:

    Is this what you experience? In all cases I can remember, the update was saved (I did not lose anything), but often the comments I include with the update are lost. I do not know what causes this, but it has happened to me more often the last few days.

    To delete an article (such as your duplicate), edit the article as follows:

      • Remove the title and replace it with something similar to "Delete This Article". You may need to follow with a date to make the title unique.
      • Remove the contents of the article and replace it with the same string, "Delete This Article".
      • Remove all tags and replace with "Candidate for deletion".

    The tag "Candidate for deletion" flags the Wiki administrators to delete the article for you.

  • Hi,

    Richard gave you already most of the information you need. I had this problem very often a while ago. Since this time I copy the whole article to the clipboard before submitting it. If something goes wrong, I can either update the article or try it a second time. This is not really a good practice, but it saved me a lot of time (because there is no need to create the article completely new a second time).

  • As an addition to copying out the article before submitting, I usually switch to HTML view and copy that code out.

  • Kumar, 

    I just gave a new title to the thread to help others finding the answer (or workarounds) for the same issue easily.

    Thanks,
