I'm not sure if it's only on my end, but everytime I try to edit info on a non-metal band in an artist's biography, I get a message from the webpage saying my session has timed out, and I need to refresh the page. I refresh, but the same loop keeps happening, and the info never saves. The only way I've found around this is to delete the band in question, and then re-add it with the correct info.

I can't reproduce this...

Do you mean, if you were to go to this page:
http://www.metal-archives.com/artists/K ... ain/112071

And click the edit icon next to the Nirvana row, and tried to save, you get that session error?

Yeah, try to change something and then save. As mentioned in the bug genie report, it only happens with regular users, not moderators. I used Chrome to reproduce it.

I logged in as a normal user and couldn't reproduce it... I also use Chrome.

Just tested with Firefox. I've tried to change the year from 1897 to 1986.

Yeah, it's the exact same issue as Evenfiel. I use IE8 and get this message. Only an issue for non-MA bands, though. Any editing related to bands we cover edits and saves just fine.

You're using IE? Only at work, I guess? :)

Works fine for me on chromium.

Guess it works only on Veterans. The "normal user" account I used to test was a Trusted (Metal Freak)... :durr:

Can you please try now?

Everything seems to be resolved. I made edits to some of the non-MA bands on Dave Murray Brockie's page, and they saved over just fine.

EDIT: Everything looks good. I've made multiple edits to Non-MA bands for a number of GWAR's members, and have had no issues. Thanks y'all.
