Why do certain words disappear from profiles or posts? From what I've notice here and there.

Anyone else have this problem?

The one that gets me is using parentheses ( ).


Yes. I did, too. When I first joined, my bio came out all chopped up, and I was embarassed to have anyone see it. I edited it twice. Words like "to" and "when". Not so much anymore.


That's why I have some periods interspersed in my bio: I got tired of having to go back and edit them in again after they dropped out. "thin", "to", and "pay".

Hey, at least your whole bio didn't get wiped for "unsupported content.". That's happened.


Long-standing unresolved problem. Cope.


Yes, and it's variable. Frequently the word ' to ' is deleted, ' thing ' becomes ' thin ', and a lot of other weird happenings.


You are correct. This has been going on for a long time. (I would say longer than a year now).

One of the words is "thin"- there are others that disappear as well.

And yes you can go in an edit them back in. It's just a weird coding glitch they never fully tracked down. Thankfully it doesn't eat entire pages!

For some reason it really likes bio pages? So remember to check it now and then.

I had this problem before as well but I haven't had it in quite a while now. I still have a note on my bio because words would randomly disappear every now and then. That hasn't happened in a while.

I think it has only happen to me two times so far with this second time being very recent on my main profile page.


That happened to me when posting a poem I'd written - and I was frustrated because it wouldn't make sense with the letters missing. I was told that it's just a glitch and so I think I figured out a work around by posting an image, but interestingly the same glitch hasn't occurred again, for me, at least to my knowledge.

I think it has happen to me at least two times thus far.

Well played.


I don’t even think we with the power of eight can mess with the words of another smile001.gif

Yeah it happens sometimes. It used to be worse. It had to do with the site. They're aware of it.


That has not been a problem for me.


it's only happening in your mind.

Then why do I need to edit to add the words back in?

@Qwent91 He's just pulling your leg. It's a coding glitch of some sort.

@RavenCT Okay.
