Names updated (the accents issue)

Hi all,

Finally, I just removed all special characters (accents & others) from first names, last names, names in the games & names in the forum, names in games discussions...

This is a very strange issue since the last server update (following the last server crash), as several characters sets/encodings were used and I did not find a way to make it compatible.

To be continued...

MySQL/MariaDB ?

I had issues in the past, but I use and use unicode utf8_unicode_ci on the DB.

MySQL. The thing here is not the code but the complete change of system. As I explained last year here, it is a complete mess in terms of compatibility (I did not suspect so many issues).
