Default Blank / cut-off posts

Hi, this is to address recent concerns that posts have been blank or cut-off halfway after submitting.

This happens when you copy and paste text from other websites and some of the characters are not supported by the forum text editor. The system will process the text up to the erroneous character, and any text after the erroneous character is removed.

Particular characters you might want to look out for are ' and " in other fonts. I have had trouble with both of these in the past.

To avoid such a situation from happening, and the prospect of you losing a long well-typed post, do check through your posts before you submit them. Alternatively, you can copy your post to the clipboard so you have a backup in case anything goes wrong.

The problem with invalid characters should now be fixed.

E.g. ¢£¤¥¦§¨©ª«¬­®¯°±²³´µ¶•¸¹

I don't believe that all characters are allowed though, so do continue to save your posts before posting.

Sometimes they drop me out to the reason I don't know?
