Are any bugs ever removed from the system?
But now it is getting really annoying!
I wrote a nice long and detailed reply, got the backend error and when I clicked on the cross in the corner to close it my reply was gone too.
Doing server works, updates or whatever is one thing but it interfers with forum funtions then at least disable the reply function during that time with a nice message informing the user what is going on in the background.
This bug exists for as long as I use Instructables and I think a fix is more than overdue.
For other bugs we see replies suggesting workarounds but nothing that suggests anything is done about them.
How about you offer a page where users can report bugs and see the progress on the work to fix them?
Obviously reporting bugs here has no real effect on anything except some replies stating the same problem over and over again ;)
The same bug that causes me to go nuts when making a reply is active here too, closing all reply and publish functions during your daily server routine is the only short term fix I can see, unless someone actually start to fix the problems before we have more problems than working functions here....
Or is there any point in showing back end errors and blank pages not to mention that all selections from the category selection are lost?
