i appreciate your quality posts on all occasions annadog but i must regretfully advise that emojis do not yet exist on the mafiascum dot net forum sans site chat, and put it to you that this thread is the vanguard that shall deliver them

Site chat is the only part that matters tbh.

Okay this is kind of a weird request

Back when the site died and we lost some games, Tierce and others recovered a bunch

I think in Weather Mafia II she also kindly color coded the flipped scum players posts as red and the flipped town players as green

Is this something that could be possibly added as a feature? Was super helpful for rereading.

I'll see if I can find it to show you what I mean

Would be useful to see.

For emojis, not worth implementing till we upgrade the board. The feature is built right into the new version of phpBB.

That isn't a request for emojis.

I just tested emojis. It looks like the site software itself handles them fine (although even with an emoji presentation marker, they appear in text presentation, perhaps due to font limitations); but an attempt to actually save the post causes an error trying to insert it into the database.

Basic Multilingual Plane characters like ọ or even ☺ work fine, so the problem is likely due to the Astral Plane nature of the emojis (which is weird, as they appear to have been added to the database in UTF-8). So this might be a simple case of changing the encoding that the database uses for the column in question (although depending on how the encoding layers work, doing that might also break all the non-ASCII characters on the site).

You used to be able to do that if I remember correctly

I thank you have to add some $_GET parameter like ?ppp=200 or if there's already a ? in the URL try &ppp=200

This may have only worked on phpBB2, but I forget

And yes, emoji's please


I thought so too, but can't get it to work now.


That’s still a thing that works. My votecounter uses it. Talk with me privately if you’re having issues and I can see what is happening and make suggestions :)

Uhmmm honestly there’s a ton of things first that would need to happen first.

I would keep this in mind. I am experimenting on a phpBB dev environment as I can on different things. So some of this stuff that should be easy is hella hard.

While that last would suck, it may not be apocalyptically bad. Plenty of old, venerable sites like this one will have instances of slightly garbled text caused by the steady march of encoding standards. However, if say, someone back in the day used box drawing characters to simulate a table before we had the tags for that, that post would be utterly destroyed. Hmm..

I highly doubt there's a possibility to covert old posts to a newer encoding, but if there is, this could work around the problem entirely.

There maybe we just have to figure out which strategy to take and what to do about certain things. There’s options. :)
