I'm just curious,
because everytime I write something, my phone seems to have problems with the text box from this website and changes words semi-randomly.

I have to proofread and edit edit (<--- here I wrote ..and edit edit shit ... FUCK man it happened again, 3rd try now: "and edit shit" now on the 3rd try it didn't change what I wrote)...well, I have to be really proofreading everything. Most of the time I have to edit and correct the posts afterwards. It only happens happens on this website (see: happens happens).

Anybody else get that?

I do not get this but I can look into it to see if I can find what's going on.
One thing is that I am going out of the country soon and then hitting Thanksgiving. Somewhere in this crazy holiday time I will be redoing the entire engine that underlies this website. So it's likely whatever is causing your grief will get resolved soon in a shotgun approach.

I get this all the time. If I have to backspace a bunch it'll fuck up the entire post usually.

ok thanks! can it really be caused by something that you can potentially fix?
if so, I can provide a more detailed description best as I can.

(I thought that it works like this: the forum works on the services of provider company X and that problem is always there, whether it's TMMAC forum or some other website that uses the same template)

Now writing from the computer...

Splinty @Splinty --> I have 'fought' a bit with my phone and managed to install English as a language for the keyboard. I should have done that initially.

I am using an Android phone, and if I either set the keyboard straight to english, or "allow English word suggestions for the autocorrect", then most of the problems disappear.

One bug that I can still provoke is, if I write a word, like "problem", then click the cursor on the phone right in front of the first letter (so, between " and the letter p from the word problem), and try to write, e.g. "problem" again. So I would have "problemproblem" and then press enter, it gets messed up and writes "problemproblemem". This is not a fun game, but happens, say, when I forget a word and want to squeeze it in in between a sentence, then the phone always messes up words. Before I had installed English, it would erase words and leave just the first letter every time. That had happened also when I pressed space. Now, with the english setting it just occurs when pressing enter (erasing the second word happens still on the german keyboard with the english autocorrect suggestions though).
Another one, if I have my "problemproblem" freakshow word and put the cursor on the phone somewhere in between those letters (on the phone, the whole word gets underlined so show that it recognizes it as a word of sorts) and press space, it erases everything that is to the right side of the cursor. That is especially annoying when you want to separate two words and the site erases the second word. big fun.

The original sentence that gave me problems in my original post, where I was trying to write "I have to proofread and edit shit" only works with the english keyboard, otherwise it messes me up every time. With different effects and errors mind you. It's also not because of the word shit. It does the same with "I have to proofread and edit stuff". So either it's the chinese government playing a silly joke on me from my Huawei phone, or that sentence might be a good hint as to what could cause that bug.

--> Anyway, if I set my keyboard to English, most of the troubles can be avoided. Only when two words get glued together and I want to separate them I still get the problem that the second half of the word might get erased.

Thanks for checking!

I think it has to do with the auto-save function because it's really common on longer posts or when I edit. It's as though after it saves it refreshes and then starts over and your text just becomes whatever it becomes.

Bug is an issue with rich text editors inside of iframe instead of div. Issure is gboard and chrome, nothing else. Ludicrous that google hasn't fixed this.

Upgrade will move text box to a div instead and that will resolve. Sorry for the trouble guys. Give me a break in these holiday period and I'll be working on getting things cleaned up.

Another example of why this site is fucking awesome. In between saving lives and yachting, Splinty @Splinty is always quick to get to the bottom of any issues with a website he makes no money from.

Thanks!
I think it is not 100% exactly the same thing. or maye be root cause is but the problem manifests itself differently here.

-> video s.o posted there in the thements (fuck my lighthouse! :D I wrote of course 'in the comments')

I get, line above, something like 'in the thements',
they would get 'in the comcomments' if I interpreted the text from the bug correctly.
