    • How to fix?
      • Go to history page, and make a comparison between the last two contributions/edits.
      • Wait around 5 min.
      • Hold the Ctrl key, and press F5.
      • Clean your history and cache of your browser.
    • Auto - log off:
      • On occasions, the users enter their username and password, to log on, but soon the same accounts log off, without any authorization of users. 
    • How to fix?
      • It is advisable to send a message to staff or wait for some time.
    • Avatars:
      • Images or avatars in the accounts can not be changed or are the same that the last one used. 
    • How to fix?
      • It is a temporary problem, so it is solved by itself. If you have weeks with the same problems is best send a message to staff.
    • Change username:
      • This is not really a problem, but usually the users must wait a few days (3) for the process to be completed. During this time it may indicate that the account is blocked but it is only part of the process.
    • Templates and bots:
      • Because some updates on all Wiki, the templates may stop working or will have a different effect.
    • How to fix?
      • You may have to create a new version or update some sources.
    • Browsers:
      • Not all users have the same browser, so that the display may change or new information would take some time to be received.
    • Message Walls:
      • When users write new messages, notifications about new posts not appear, so take time to receive the message.
    • How to fix?
      • It is a temporary problem, so it is solved by itself. 
      • Chat room is recommended.

If you still can't find your answer, try the Forum, where you can ask questions and other helpful editors will answer them in time.
