Due to a bug, all "zero width non-breaking space" characters were removed from my puzzle when I edited the tag. I tried to edit them back in, but the page keeps deleting them. Since that completely breaks the puzzle, I copied it into an answer and linked that in the question. Not really a nice way to do it, but the only way
But then a mod came along and deleted the answer. So I resubmitted it with a note like "don't delete, that breaks the puzzle", but it was deleted again. Then I resubmitted it again, this time explaining in as much detail as I could why that post should never ever ever be deleted, but, you guessed it, it was deleted.
At this point I don't know what to do. I already asked in chat, but I don't get an answer there. I now have a puzzle with 6 upvotes and a partial solution with 4 upvotes, but it's completely broken and nobody can continue puzzling.
In chat, I compared this with putting a book back into the shelf, but onto a bomb detonation button: Sure, you tidied up your room, but now the house is destroyed. Not really a useful thing to do.
So, may I ask here for the post to stay, please? I don't know anymore how else I can express it, but that post HAS TO stay there.
So what should be done in such a situation? I can't wait for the bug to be fixed, because that can take months (since it's usually not that critical of a bug). I can't just submit a new question, because the upvotes, stars, comments and answers aren't transferred there, also it would likely be closed as a duplicate. I apparently aren't allowed to post it as an answer and link it. A comment doesn't preserve the formatting properly either. So what's left?

Update: I got an answer in chat to my formatting problem. I was told to try a rollback. That actually worked and the puzzle is fixed again. But now the tag is wrong again, of course. I edited this question from "stop deleting my post" to "what to do when I can't repair it with edits", because it's still a valid question, it just isn't as urgent for me anymore.
