Fixing the Corrupted Posts: all please read
« on: March 20, 2006, 10:27:27 AM »
Dear OCnet Members,

In our last upgrade, you may have noticed some posts got messed up. Some of them were fixed with one of Robert's skilled patches, but others are unfortunately permanently broken.  We don't want to have such posts forever messed up though so here's how we want to go about fixing this problem:

1) Please do a view of all your posts chronologically (you can do this by visiting your profile and clicking "show posts").  If any of your past posts have weird characters in them, PM Anastasios.  We will accept submissions this way until Thursday.

2) After Thursday, if you see anyone else's posts messed up, please report them via the post report. It is very important that in the "reason for reporting" you write, "character problem."

3) I will attempt to fix.

4) If I can't fix, I will PM the author and ask for clarification.

We need your help to get this fixed. Thanks so much!

Anastasios and crew

What would constitute a "wierd" character?  Anything in specific or just anything we think is wrong?  
I got nothing.
I forgot the maps
March 27th and May 30th 2010 were my Ordination dates, please forgive everything before that

nsbp or whatever, huge squares in posts, |, ?????????? (the question marks should have been fixed automatically but may not have), etc.  If it doesn't make sense in context you will know. Here is an example though:

in the first post you see squares everywhere.
