Yeah! Mine's bugging out too...yet again!
Having spent weeks making a whole new simplified OP, completely backed up of course as BB code, the flippin' thing now completely freaks out all over again if I even just open up the editor and (no edits at all) click on 'preview'! Makes no difference if I use my backed up BBcode, or try to edit the thing manually...it still garbles it all up when I click on preview. So I'm left in the position of just not touching my OP (fortunately it looks ok at the moment if left untouched, but like you I want to be able to update things AND have the confidence it's not all going to be wasted time...again!) until I can bother to get admin to look at the thing! So very frustrating!!!
As this has happened a few times to me before, I was beginning to wonder if I was reaching some indeterminate memory limit in my OP, after which admin seek revenge by ripping everything up! At least having it happen to you means I might not be the only rebel around here.
Anyways, everything is looking awesome as usual, Sheep, at least the download is working ok and I can follow all the pics you post in the thread.
In the meantime I shall also be interested to find out what you do to sort out your OP...I'll try and remember to let you know how I eventually sort mine out. Best of luck!
Ahhh the things us poor texture creators go through...
It seems to be an issue with the preview button currently because as you mentioned, if you press it the lovely formatting you spent your time on just vanishes and in its place is whatever the preview button seems to think is best... Maybe the preview button is possessed? Who knows... In any case, I'm just not gonna press it and hope that what I did in the BBcode translates well to what we actually see in the post from now on!
Yea, if I figure out a way to get my OP to stick even with the preview button or get an admin/mod to take a look at it I'll let you know either how I did it or the results of the admins/mods testing. Hopefully we can get it sorted out eventually though, I'm going to be adding pictures back into my OP in the not too distant future which will make it even more of a formatting nightmare and I can only imagine what you have to go through each time!
So yea, best of luck to the both of us, mate!
Thanks mate, glad you're enjoying it!
