View Full Version : Need help with my username
31st Dec 2011, 11:13 AM
I'm not sure what happened, but my username now reads Ry(a strange symbol with a questionmark)chan (this ï¿½), which I suppose can happen if the site's font no longer can handle Ã» (it has until now though). Could someone please change the weird symbol into a plain "u" for me? It looks better and at least that I can type when I log in. ^^;;
(I had a look at that other thread for changing user names, but I can't really figure that one out. Seems mostly to be about funny or not so funny stories to me.)

Yes, the thread for changing your user name is about funny stories. The funny story is a requirement for changing the name. The very first post explains it. Although as the site seems to have done its own name change for you this -might- be an exception, since you are basically just asking for it to be put back to something closer to the way it formerly was.

Is you name supposed to look like this: Ryûchan?

It looks fine here in the thread view but on New Posts the ^ bit is a ascii character thingy.

Encoding does seem to have changed: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=366580

So much for my attempts to switch to utf-8... ;)
I switched it back to ISO-8859-1.

Thank you very much for the help. I hope I didn't cause trouble for anyone. ^.^;;

I have still not forgiven UTF-8.
