Language Swap

When I am studying my characters the custom definitons (which I edit alot) in German sometimes switch back to English, deleting my own editions.

Why does this happen?
This sucks!

Hmm, that's no good! A couple questions:

Do the definitions start out in English, you edit them, and then they switch back to English? Or is it that they start in German, you edit them, and they switch back to English?

The custom definitions that you create, that then disappear--do you ever see them again after you create them, or are they gone the next time you see the word?

well, both. sometimes I start to change an English definiton and change it to German, sometimes it's already in German and I add something new.

today it happend that one definiton that was German at first and switched back to English turned back to German today.

That is very strange! What browser are you using?

Firefox (on OS X)

(happens to me on and on. it's not quite common, might happen to like 5% of my vocabulary)

Do you see lag from the latency indicator (an alpha feature, which you can turn on from the general account settings) around the time that things like this happen?

I see those latency indiactors alot so I can't tell if they occure at the same time, but I give some attention to it :)
