PM error

Post by troy168 » February 15th, 2016, 10:28 pm

I was relaxing and viewing videos when I got a notification on youtube, and when I saw it, I saw two people calling Zeta a prick, so I want to let her know, but when I tried to send the message, I received this:

SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Incorrect string value: '\xC4\x93su C...' for column 'message_text' at row 1 [1366]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.

I don't know if it's only me, or anyone else that is having this problem, but I want to let her know about the two.

This can sometimes happen at random, sometimes its when the board is going through updates.

Hey, sorry for the delay in replying, but I'm putting an answer here in case people are looking for it.
There is a bug in the forum database that means that only "Latin" style characters can be posted.
If you use Unicode (emotes, Cyrillic, Kanji, etc) it will generate the error.
I'm working with a colleague of mine that is familiar with MySQL to get the database ported over.
Sorry I didn't catch this before.
