So this website isn't dead?

Post by Buddster » Tue Dec 13, 2016 3:04 am

It's been about two or more years since I left this site, and when I did, it was pretty dead. I came back for Nostalgia sake, and to maybe bring some more attention to this website. Was actually a lot of fun when it wasn't... dying... glad to see it's doing okay. I mean as I speak there's like 50 users online so that's cool. Anywho, what's up?

Hi!
We're not dead, but there isn't that much activity.
The "50 users online" is a lie, most of those are not registered, likely mostly spambots and search engines or some other technical gremlin.
There's a few of us posting semi-regularly. Not in the roleplay section tho... that seems desolate.

ASDF WILL NEVER DIE as long as there are people that post occasionally

As long as there's a person with admin-like privileges, someone will join, and once they're approved, they will post occasionally.

There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Forums of ASDF. But it was a beginning.

Here's a handy link!

There's at least one more that's not in that list, but apparently I get an SQL error if I try to post the "Multiple Musical Notes" emoji

Edit: Test on the other musical emoji, which does appear in the link: FAILED

Apparently, the database can't store emoji.

Incorrect string value: '\xF0\x9F\x91\x8D f...' for column 'post_text' at row 1 [1366]
I fail to see how can there be an incorrect string value... what encoding does the forum use?

'xF0\x9F...' is the UTF-8 representation of the emoji. The HTML for this page is represented as UTF-8, as well.

My guess is that the forum can't handle anything beyond the Basic Multilingual Plane. The multiple notes emoji is U+1F3B6, so it's beyond that plane. Specifically, it's in the Supplementary Multilingual Plane.
