Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

that is just as offensive as bypassing chat censors with bad words
thus shouldnt be a reason not to bring this back
just punish people that do it

this was a joke post in reply to soniety's post, just saying

if people really want to do bad in the chat they dont need unicode to be able to do it
yet absence of unicode complicates the communication for people that dont use latin alphabet languages

then restrict to VSECS instead! it has 361 characters (not 191) but covers more symbols and languages!

Still much better than watching those – and — done with effort disappear.

Re: ee chat should support unicode

I see the reason why it was disabled, and I am staying neutral with whether you add this or not.

You could chat very well in englisch before. What should change it now? If you want to speak in Chinese, then go to discord or anywhere else. The game should be kept child-friendly and (!) international.

Being able to talk in e.g. Chinese would bring to the game Chinese people. This means moderation will have to trade with translations, the forums would become international in the meaning of everyone writes in his preferred language. Also what Atilla said above; unicode has many "invisible" characters that can break the entire chat system for you (or at least there are rumours about that).

Chat evading would be another problem:

CONTENT WARNING

So, in general, I'm neutral with this idea; from the other side, yes, great, from the other, no, it's completely evadable

Re: ee chat should support unicode

What's wrong with characters specifically like €, –, —, etc. that made everything outside ISO 8859-1 disabled?! I don't think it's intentional.

Re: ee chat should support unicode

I remember the good times when Linus21 would spam Chinese and it would crash the world, booting everyone out from it. I still want this though, just as long as the bugs are fixed. Hoping for EEU with unicode support.
