Screenshots of what you are seeing: Intermittent/not screenable glitch. *Though see second reply for a recording of the issue.
Description of problem:
Step 1: Open an observation.
Step 2: Either make an ID that changes the community ID, or any other method requiring the page to update (adding new photos, ticking data quality boxes). This can be done by yourself, or by someone else at the same time as step 3.
Step 3: Type a comment. Several seconds later after applying any of the previously mentioned changes, the page “updates” and the comment field is emptied. This also simultaneously results in sections such as “top IDers” and “observations of relatives” being refreshed due to the recategorization, as intended, but it all seems to occur in the same event. This can happen several times in a row as the page seemingly finalizes the changes. I think the several times might relate to changing community ID + applying research grade.
Step 4: Frustration because the two sentences typed just vanished, again. Or several sentences if the connection is being slow. I’ve had full paragraphs vanish.
