Username strangely modified

edited August 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi folks,

Maybe it was already reported somewhere else, but it seems the characters encoding acts weird since Mark fixed a few things. My username used to be Ø on the community forum, and now it's displayed as Ø. I guess it has something to do with Vanilla 1.0.1...

    One more problem: it also affects my login. I can't use Ø anymore. I was able to post above because I was already authenticated, but the computer I'm currently using had no cookie and I needed to log as Ø to post this second comment.

    Maaaaaark? Sorry to bother you with my stupid nickname, but looks like you're the only one who can do something :)

    Are you able to edit the username on your profile settings?

    I didn't change anything in the database - I can only assume that's what would cause it. This is a wierd one. Like wallphone said, can you edit it in your profile?

    Yep, thanks guys, it worked.

    I should have tried this before posting but I was too surprised to even think about it. Sorry for being dumb.
    I still wonder how it happened since you didn't modify anthing.
