Thanks for pointing this out.  It gives me an idea
about what might be going on.

The software has only had a few days of actual users
pounding on it, so there will be glitches.  (It's always
amazing how real users find things that testing does not.)
I've put the server into read only mode while we sort this out.

I fully appreciate the standards that people expect of
the OEIS and the collective effort that goes into curating it.
There are two independent backup mechanisms beyond
the main database, so I am confident that none of the
disappearing changes have actually been lost.

I apologize for the disruption.
Thanks for your patience while we sort this out.
