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.

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.

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.

Goldfish is still on those. Our staging server was down for a few days while we were doing a test-update to UTF-8, so things fell behind a bit.

That's always handled internally by the Clock Crew. And holy crap, that is CLOSE.
