I have just noticed topic entitled

"Kroda - ПоÑоÑон С&ET"

it is in Albums section and it is about Kroda's album with title in Cyrillic - Похорон Сонця (translated as Fimbulwinter)...since the Cyrillic in general displays with no problems, it seems there are some issues with topics about albums, that are created automatically...so i would say it is something to fix somehow (or avoid using other than "ordinary alphabet" in album titles)

Mighty kingdoms rise, but they all will fall

Ya the title appears fine on the actual album page, but when browsing the forum, the topic title's all fucked up.

First edit: I did tiny changes to that band's album title and the tracklist. Second edit: I fixed everything back as it was.

Now that cyrillic mess is gone when using the search engine, but it shows as "Kroda - Похорон Сонця (Fimbu". So for some reason it eats part of the "(Fimbulvinter)". Just a guess; maybe it's because that forum title already existed written exactly like that (and there can't be two forum topics with the same name?) but it showed up messy in the forum, because there haven't always been support for cyrillic letters.

Anyway, it's better now than it was, but i think there's still some tricks to fix it better.

I found this problem when you download your collection in .txt format.

Can this be fixed?

If this is what I think it is, then yes. It can and it will be fixed. Only not not within a few weeks or months.

I think it's because of the encoding.
What about changing it into "Unicode-UTF8" ? Doesn't it fix this?
