Thanks. Please fix your CAPTCHA implementation: [1] (When editing just one section, it removes all line breaks.) 84.249.47.123 12:05, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
You know, you could just come to us immediately rather than magically expect a change in 5 minutes and complain elsewhere. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 17:06, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
There is nothing wrong with our CAPTCHA in this regard. A previous editor removed the line breaks and we hadn't noticed (I have now fixed this). I just logged out and tested this as an anon and had no such problem of line breaks being removed. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 20:56, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Could it be copy-pasting itself? Because it was not just those decorative line breaks. Also the important one after the section heading. Now that line break is super crucial to wikitext parsing. Try this:
  • Log out
  • Click [2]
  • Copy-paste everything from the wikiEditor-iframe into your favorite text editor.
  • Reproduce my fix, e.g.: Search&Replace "/br" with "br/" and also add 16 line breaks — What I did was replace {{fam with \r\n{{fam
  • Copy&paste the fixed code back into the textbox on the website.
  • Submit
  • Solve CAPTCHA (And notice how the newline is removed even after the section title.)
  • Submit anyway, if you want to confirm that page layout is indeed broken.
Before: ==Genealogy==\n<div...
After: ==Genealogy==<div...
Thanks for all the messages! (Not sure what Ederchil meant with immediate coming and elsewhere complaining, but I appreciate it nonetheless.) I just want to help. 84.249.47.123 19:44, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

This is the talk page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it.

We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify him/her. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
