I have recently begun noticing display problems when accessing BGG. Little diamonds with question marks inside, in place of other characters. Like the "e" in Formula De (as displayed on the front page). Or some hyphens. Is there any easy way to fix this? Any idea if it's a site problem or a problem with my computer?

Unfortunately this is a result of Aldie's insistence on monkeying around with "UTF-8", whatever the hell that means. I'm afraid the only possible remediation is to buy three entirely new computers.

I've noticed this as well.

As a side note, for some reason within IE, my new "toaster" avatar is all jacked up. Everything is jagged and the pixels shift around the moving eye. Within Firefox it works perfectly. Any ideas?

I had the character encoding issue last week, when João was GotW. It seems better now; I reckoned they got it nailed down... You just started having the issue?

Well, I was away from my computer for a few days, and I noticed it when I got back on Monday. I'm not sure if it was a problem last Thursday, before I went on a trip.

As an example, I have the Game Forums set to Recent on my BGG front page. Three of the top five game titles currently have display problems: ESPA�A 1936, M� & Lots More, Formula D�.

I'm seeing it as well. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there is probably a plugin that will fix the problem, but I haven't gotten around to doing anything about it yet.

I don't need no stinkin' plug in.

Or at least I shouldn't

I just know it's been bugging the crap out of me too!
