    When submitting news, on ocassion, some characters come out 'funky'. You need to make sure you fix these funky characters and replace them with the proper ones.

    Example from a story you submitted today:
    Whoever actually posts this has to go to the source and correct all the lil � or simply delete the story. This one was deleted as the site was slow and I can't be bothered waiting for it to load to fix the characters

    Back in the old days there was about a dozen, often used, characters it wouldn't display properly and most of them didn't show up in preview!

    you are more likely to get stories with that kind of stuff when copying from IRC or something as those sometimes come out as the colour and or bolding characters

    BTW sorry I have been gone for a while, I will continue to be away (except with the occasional postings like now) til I get a phone line installed in my Uni room and then get that converted to ADSL for some decent internet speeds ;)

    Sweet new admin/smod/mod thingers we got now, nice work
