The NG database is now UTF-8, the way most modern databases are. Hopefully this was a good idea. Today's update addresses long-standing issues with special / foreign characters not being supported on NG. If you posted special characters in the past week (when we had a bandaid), those will now be broken again. Moving forward, they should work.

In any case, I'll try Japanese: ここでは、原料のものだろうか?

Hopefully people will get the novelty out of their system and it will just be like most sites that support unicode. It will be appreciated long-term when submission titles don't get jacked and copy-pasted text doesn't get garbled.

Does this mean we're allowed to use languages other than English now?

Great job, I welcome the update in open arms.

Now, we just need an edit button and increased file size limits when attaching to our posts and this place will be cool.
