Can't start or save instructable ? Answered

This same problem comes time after time, there's days that even if i try every hour to start a new instructable i get "oops something went wrong", message.

That same message comes sometimes if i try to save finished instructable.

Also more than 50 % of the comments that i write or answer, i get that same message.

I have tried with Chrome, Edge and Opera. There is now difference what browser is used.

Is that a global, local or just me with that issue?

It would be nice to get fix for it..

Not working for me, either. I managed to get started on a new project (I've sent an email to Instructables Support detailing how), but I can't save my work. Same "Oops!" error as above.

Oh, and just to be sure, I've cleared my cookies to try to get around this (took a few tries, some kept getting recreated), and even my cached images.

(also, while trying to add this reply, I got repeated "Oops, something went wrong!" errors, it took dozens of tries to get through).

It happens to me too. It actually requires better internet connection as I guessed at first. It showed the message frequently, enough to freak me out.
As solution I think Internet speed is playing a role here. So check your internet speed and make sure your pc is not entirely busy at that time.
