Russian Slogan? attn [Violet]

Postby Sorgan » Sun Jun 28, 2009 3:39 pm

In settings it won't let me upload a Russian Slogan. And it was SHORTER then my previous one. I tried on words in Russian and it said it was too long. it was 5-6 characters. Is this a bug or does it only allow English?

Would you mind posting the slogan in this thread so that [violet] or another admin could see it?

Aren't you a mod? Why isn't your name written in red? Or am I just crazy...

No, I'm the crazy one. And purple looks so much better on him. Really makes his mask come out just right.

One thing, I thought the cyrillic characters took up more space than the english ones did. I think this came up in regards to WFE quite awhile back.

Probably. If they're stored as UTF-8 they take up two bytes per character, meaning they game might read it as twice as long as it actually appears.

It's potentially worse than that. It's likely stored as HTML escaped unicode which will result in a string 7 or 8 times as long as it appears in Cyrillic.

Slogan:Единство - Сила!

Questions 2: They are but i don't think that is that long.

That expands to about 100 characters. Clearly ridiculous. Unfortunately, we don't (currently) have a solution for this problem. Sorry.
