I am trying to edit a post to improve it, but cannot:

enter image description here

I am editing posts a lot and I know the message well. But this time it is

a. wrong
b. blocking

That's new. I have tried multiple times. Edited just tags or just the body or the title. It blocks all the time. First observed around 15 minutes ago.

It may be relevant that in my first attempt to edit I changed the title to start with an upper case letter and then got an error message in yellow / brown ranting about the (now?) duplicate title. All further attempts were blocked as described.

You should be able to submit posts with validation warnings again after build rev 2014.12.3.2063 rolls out.

    Silly question, but as a bit of a noob to all this stuff, when do these builds roll out? Obviously the date is today, but are builds done at a certain time of day, or rolled out randomly at different times, or something completely different? Just curious. Dec 3, 2014 at 20:39
  • @AndrewMartin the last part is an incrementing number. Builds are triggered manually.

    Incrementing? Then why I see "rev 2014.12.3. 2820" at the bottom?.. That should be reported as bug then? :)

    @nicael because some meta sites are on the meta tier (tiers: dev -> meta -> prod), each tier has it's own incrementing build number, that's why I usually give 2 build revs

  • Yes, edit went through with the new build. Seems fixed. Thanks. Dec 3, 2014 at 21:06

    @nicael there's also stackexchange.com, area51, and data explorer, each with its own different build. :) Dec 3, 2014 at 21:20
