For example in this post https://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/show…ostcount=13381 I see something like "Yeah, I’ve thought …".

Edit: Is it possible that the post editor produces unicode but the overall page templates are made for Western?

When I switch to Unicode manually, I see the text correctly.
Yes, if I do that in Chrome it looks a lot better. However if I change the page itself to UTF-8, which should be the same as doing it through Chrome, the results are not the same. It is still a garbled mess.
You can check that by changing the forum template (at the left bottom of the page). By default it is Lapis Watch. If you change that to Amber Watch, it uses UTF-8.

Can we put that in place here ?
Thought about that, but there are a number of things to consider:
1) At RPGDot the system was flawed because there were many people, just rating it with a 1 or a 10.
This can be prevented by only allowing people to rate games when they have a minimum amount of votes.

2) A rating without a comment is not helpful.
I don't want to add the comment to the rating, but want to integrate the comment to the forums. to facilitate discussing the game.


This isn't impossible, but I don't want to do that using this forum software anymore.

What about just an up or downvote and only for people with a minimum of 10 forum posts?

Might be something interesting to look at on the future software. I wonder if it might work to restrict the ratings to a sort of members' voting academy. Doesn't need to be exclusive at all, but just to restrict it to folks who agree to give sensible ratings and meaningful comments, and not the 0/10 hysterics.
