Talk page edit deleted way more text than expected
Open, LowPublic

Description

I edited above the following section header

Can you please explain?

I made no edits below that section header.

The system tagged non-contiguous blocks of text below that section header and deleted them when I saved the edit.

Everything above that section header is a valid edit.

Admin Liz reverted my entire edit

Aklapper renamed this task from System deleted text during talk page edit to Talk page edit deleted way more text than expected.May 13 2016, 10:27 AM

Update: It happened again in this Diff. I deleted nothing below the first section header, but the system selectively nuked almost my entire talk page.

Normally editing only the header don't works with Mediawiki, I guess you're using a custom script. I thinl in this case it's the scripts fault?

Hi, Luke081515.
I opened both whole talk pages for editing but I only worked on the very top portion above the first section heading.

Not sure what you mean about editing only the header not working.
