Problem editing steps Answered

Hi there. I'm having difficult recently trying to edit my instructable. When I try to edit any of the steps, it goes to save the intro even though I didn't edit it and the screens fades a bit to save. I can see the progress wheel turning, but it never stops.

I pulled up the Error console and it gave me this:

JavaScript - https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8
Inline script compilation
Syntax error while loading: line 6 of inline script at https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8 :
Expected token: ')'
aterials that I used:Building supplies" Cardboard (thick) Make sure it is rigid" Cardboard (thin)"
JavaScript - https://www.instructables.com/id/edit?instructableId=EQY2DE1G1BBCRA8
Timeout thread: delay 10 ms
name: SyntaxError
message: Statement on line 495: Syntax error
stacktrace: n/a; see  opera:config#UserPrefs|Exceptions Have Stacktrace

I have no idea what any of this means. I tried on Safari,  Firefox and Opera and all three gave me the same problems.

The instructable in questions is:


Thanks for looking into this.

Sorry you've been having this trouble.  I just gave editing your Instructable a shot and had the same problem myself.  The good news is, the problem isn't on your end, the bad news is, that means that the problem is on ours. 

We'll look into it as soon as we can.
