??? is bad also. Maybe replace it with default name when unsupported chars are used.

I could probably just remove any chars it doesn't understand if you think that's best? The four question marks probably come from the fact the emoji is using a four byte uni code char and therefore turns to four question marks

Opinions? Remove all non Latin chars?

all that needs to be done is change the db field to support utf8, and also save all related files in utf8, at least thats where i think the problem is. I think its a faster an easier solution than filtering out characters, plus allows certain freedom to how you name them. I don't want to encourage weird/fancy characters in crit names, i am just saying where the problem might be.

Yeah I understand thats the issue but thats not the solution in my opinion.

Hence why the above solution.
