    Hi All,

    Most issues are resolved. I still have some dramas with foreign text characters not translating. I have a consultant looking into this. It involves some differences in the character set collation in the databases from the old to new server. Hopefully this can be resolved soon.

    Thanks,
    Sean

    This might be ok now. Do we have any foreign language members that can confirm? Just doing some tests I can now post characters ä ö ü ß ’ „ “ and the older garbled text is now displaying normally (as far as I can tell)

    Ah now, Matt, I think everything will eventually be merged into the great "deleted" thread in the sky, given enough time... :D
