Closed, ResolvedPublic


Possibly the most vanilla dirty diff ever, if it is a dirty diff - in the VE has added an extra space (before "novel").

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

Other examples:

In this diff, the second whitespace was intended, but the first one wasn't:

In the subsequent edit, the user tried to remove the space that was inserted by VE, and not only was he not able to remove it, but VE actually added /another/ space:

I notice that in these 2 cases, as well as in the case reported in comment 1, there's an adjacent colon. Dunno if it's related.

It might be worth noting that spaces keep being added each time you edit an article with this bug (some examples here: , it seems related to the colon), and that some of them are not even real whitespaces.
