The following question was closed by the asker with a glossary entry. However, I doubt even the asker knew what s/he was doing, most probably s/he just clicked a button he saw there. The term entered does NOT exist at least in one of the languages in the pair (being my native one). And there is no moderator for the language pair concerned (Dutch>Turkish). What could be done to delete/edit this entry?

One more bug Nov 16, 2003

Let's say you've made a mistake (like "what to do to do to doo bee doo") in the title of a forum posting, and edited it, and then refreshed the forum page to see your title in its edited form, a new entry is born! This happens all the time with Kudoz answers, the more times you refresh the page after adding something to your answer, the more clone-answers you get. There it's easy to hide the clones though, but maybe I thought, a correction sitewide could be possible...

Please get in touch with any moderator... Nov 16, 2003

who speaks Turkish.

Hi,

I'd be glad to help you, but I don't speak any Turkish.

P.S. About the "clones": whenever you refresh the page, information are sent _again (at least if you use IE, I can't tell for other browsers), that's why you see the clones. Once you have edited the posting, please click only on *update post*. I normally enter the link to the KudoZ, instead of refreshing.
