I recently put up a comment in the 'A Big Picture Look At 'Earth’s Temperature' -- WUWT' thread and I think I may have buggered something up. I pasted a picture from GISTemp and now the picture doesn't show, I can't edit the comment and I can't seem to even add a new comment. Anyone got super-user access to just kill it?

That's happened to me before; I think it's a bug (or a feature) in the PHP.  I'll see if I can kill your comment.

Nope.  Doesn't even give me the option to edit your comment or delete it.  Busted.

One for JC to fix.

Glen, try clicking the link below to get in and edit the comment, then I'd suggest going into HTML mode (click the HTML "button" on the last row of the WYSIWYG toolbar, 3rd icon from the right) and erase the entire contents and hit submit (if you can).  Or you can try it first in WYSIWYG mode.  That might work, too.

If that doesn't work, hit the link again but then hit the "Turn of WYSIWYG" link above and try it that way.  If you still can't, come back to this comment (with WYSIWYG off) and hit the link below yet again and try it that way.

That last bit worked for me.  I was then able to delete the empty comment.

Thanks!

But I lost all your HTML - all that was left was the first line of text.

Daniel must've fixed it a minute before I did :-)

Thanks guys, looks clean now, see what happens

 

DB. Was that Gollum or Yoda? Really scary thought, they are one and the same. George Lucas is Tolkien reborn!!
