    See also my sig. Used to be Überlist, now it changed to durkadurkaberlist. My wild guess is that the forums were saved on a machine that doesn't recognize umlauts etcetera during the repairs.

    *edit: editting it fixed it all right. :D

    It's even more fun when trying to log in. Good luck typing your name if it looks like some of the things reported in this thread. I mean, I wouldn't even know how to type all of the characters in my "new" username (copy/paste isn't really all that convenient, especially when using more than one computer. Keeping your username in a text file on a USB flash drive is only amusing for so long...) :(

    It's just an encoding thing. While annoying for alphamonkey to find out where the UTF-8 conversion isn't working it right, it is simply fixed.

    However, I too vote it is not, to get back at all the people with UTF-8 World of Warcraft names that made writing my crawler a bitch. I feel alpha's pain :)

    The encoding seemed to change my "Lord of the Mööse" to "Arch Faggot".

    I suspect some sort of shenanigans.

    It gives them something to talk about when someone asks why they have such a weird name. It gives them character.
