Ali,

You get this message when you are editing the same profile when another member is also working on it.

You'll need to look at the profile, but it's unlikely any of your changes were saved.   Changes by another person may now appear.

Hopefully,  you have a copy of the edits you made which I've learned to do when working on  "popular" profiles.

Best of luck!

You also get it if you are editing it in another tab/window.  Or if you are editing a related profile in such a way it affects the profile in edit.
Great addition Melanie!!

Happened to me the other day.  I was adding a child in one tab, and edited the parent in the first tab.  I had to restart the add child procedure.  blush

No one else is showing up on your changes. I have had that happen several times a day lately. it seems to be related to edits affecting multiple profiles. Like editing the bio and adding a child without saving in between or entering a marriage.

You can  usually hit the back button on your browser, copy the changes and then paste them in again if they go missing.

I tend to work by the document and bounce between different profiles in various stages of edits which probably makes it more likely to occur.
