    Upon checking your form in your website, I don't find any problem regarding "Hint Example". Please take a look screenshot here.

    If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you!

    Are you observing this behavior in a particular browser? Like my colleague, I can see the hint examples in the Event Purpose and Band Details text areas just fine. If the problem occurs regardless of the browser used, try changing the URL in the embedded form code from http://form.jotform.co/jsform/21808623938865 to http://www.jotform.co/jsform/21808623938865 and let us know if doing so helps.
