I've noticed that special characters were messed up in the move. It's not a big deal in a post, obviously, but Voronwe alerted me to the fact that he can't log in anymore since his name is messed up. It's now Voronwë_the_Faithful.

He's going to log in and let me know if he can do so with the "new" name and change his name back to what it should be. (I will edit this post after I find out the results of his experiment.)

In the meantime, if you've tried to log in and can't, it may be because your name has a special character in it. PM me at HoF, and I'll work on fixing it for you.

I noticed that - I was going to ask about it when Alatar gets back. Something to do with character sets, possibly in the mySql database settings?

If Voronwe requests, either of us can change his username to something without special characters - it can always be changed back once we get the problem fixed.

How did you fix it?

It may be that you'll have to "unfix" it when we fix the other issue - I see that Voronwë's name is displaying correctly, but the existing stuff is displaying wrong :uhoh:

I had to manually change his name. He could not log in even with the correct "new" name. Moreover, I had to end around the process to select him as a user. At first, it found the "new" name on the members' list through the search feature, but then it said he didn't exist when I tried to select him. When I clicked on his name from the pop-up search list, though, it worked. (I know I'm not explaining that well. Sorry.)
