forum Character page won’t let me remove my text from a field

Hi! Today, I realized that part of my character’s page was totally unnecessary, so I put my hand on the backspace key and got rid of it all. But when I went to my changelog, I realized it didn’t show an update, and when I went into view mode, I could still see my old text. For some reason, it hadn’t allowed me to remove my text from the fields — or at least it hadn’t saved them. I tested this multiple times, removing my text in various ways, but nothing’s worked. In the meantime, I’ve replaced the text in those fields with periods, but still, they’re a bit of an eyesore. I’m not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but I thought I’d come over here to the support forms and let you know just in case it is and you feel the need to fix it.

Here’s Ray, the character I was doing this on, if you want to see what I’m talking about. The two fields in question are on his Looks page.

Oof, you're right. This looks like an unintended side-effect of one of the systems in place to preserve data if an autosave errors out (and would otherwise try to delete a field's text). I'll do some testing and get a fix out in tonight's release so you can properly delete whole fields without adding a period! Thanks for letting me know!
