Unable to create a new YKTTW:

I tried to post a new YKTTW earlier today, but submitting the form took me straight back to http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/yk_activity.php and my YKTTW didn't show up. I tested it several times afterwards, and the same thing happened each time.

I'm using Firefox 10.0.2 on Windows XP.

Make sure that the laconic does not contain any links. That's a known issue.

Well I didn't have any such thing in the laconic bar, and I'm getting the same problem.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.

Well I finally got it to register, but I'm not sure if it was fixed or just didn't catch the glitch this time.

EDIT: And now the open/close draft button doesn't work.

On Ask The Tropers, Eddie said something weird is going on and that we must use the permanent link until he can fix it.

OK, and now every single YKTTW has five hats. I bet that will be a pain to sort out.

Looks like everything's fixed now. Thanks.

I spoke to soon. There's another bug with YKTT Ws submitted after the previous issues. When you go to edit a new YKTTW, all the single quotes are escaped with backslashes (ie '). These remain in the text when you submit the edited YKTTW.

Double-escaping is a much older known bug. And it keeps happening over and over and over and over again until you can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t see anything else but the backslashes.

Really, the backslashes multiply faster than Plot Bunnies on Viagra.

[up][up] Except that a lot (most?) of the YKTT Ws that had hats before the glitch no longer do. And I was so close on a couple...

It seems that Eddie is now implementing a new YKTTW system - I've just seen a headline being thrown up mentioning this.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
