We have successfully converted our database charset to utf8mb4 in addition to applying a fix to posts with accented or otherwise special characters. If you notice any information has been lost or content is appearing garbled please let us know and we can attempt to recover. This conversion also allows more modern emojis to be used in the forum.
-Some old posts containing � may have been converted to the incorrect character. No information previously displayed should have been lost however.
-Emojis are not supported through the quick edit/reply boxes. If you edit a post containing such characters, they will vanish on submission.
