That's alright Shades, I'll handle it now... it's a simple fix.

I've changed all the pages on CIT to support unicode, giving us actual languages instead of horrible botches of said words.

I also had to update the bio db table to utf-8, so if you're still seeing odd characters, try reloading your tracker of choice and updating your info... let me know if you're still having issues.


I will expand this fix across to faces' comments table as well and I honestly believe these are the only places that need the lingual support.

Just something I'd like to see.  Glycerine correctly reads my character bio as:

But the character profile on the CIT site reads:

It's a minor thing, but hey, would be neat to see it fixed.

Well, Steiner's taken a "Step 1".  Since nothing is ever as simple as it seems, I'm going to go ahead and clear this bio.  When you get a chance, can you sign on with Glyc/HS to re-send the bio?  I'm wondering if there isn't a deeper issue here.

Steiner and I did a bit of research, and this is a deeper issue.  I think I've got it pinned down, and hopefully should be hammered in the next day or so

Just updated.  Looks like it's no soap so far.

Thanks for checking it out, by the way!  Didn't expect such a low priority fix to get such a prompt response :)

Should be working now.  You'll need to pop on the characters with Glyc or HS running to fix them online, as it was an issue with the way the bios were sent to the DB.

This really was never "low" priority, however it was something that just kept coming back whenever anything was changed.  Or at least, that's how it seemed.  I for one am glad if this stays fixed for once :P.

Although this is in the CIT forums... I did mention that we'd be changing up Faces to respect Unicode as well...
