    Non-ASCII characters in usernames are silently stripped

    So I created an account on the main site under Hati Hrˇ­vitnisson, and no matter what I can't login with that username. I genuinely made sure not to misspell it but for some reason the site is convinced that my username doesn't exist. Is there anything I can do to get into my account?

    I just tried a few combinations, and I've found the name over here. It appears the system did not take well to the accented characters.

    Yeah, the code as it stands is rather unicode-phobic.

    posting a quick reply to remind me that this is something that I really, really need to finally look over in more detail. the current code (as far as I've seen) is a total wreck in this regard and is in dire need of a rewrite.
