Chinese moderator produces unreadable alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Check this thread.  That's the one that was linked in an alert I got when a moderator marked my post as an answer.  The alert was filled with question marks.  Only the link and "Microsoft" were readable.  I reckon you don't have a "preferred language" setting for a user.  Or a "originally posted at" breadcrumb.  You'll need one...

  • It is character conversion I have been telling Microsoft there is no automatic localization in but it works sometimes so most developers choose that option.  The Chinese alphabet is more than 2000 charaters it remains a dream to convert the 26 charater Latin alphabet to Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

  • I wonder if the alert locale is being picked up off of the user that triggered the alert. Certaily, this is wrong and it should be the default locale of the forum that is used (we don't store a preferred locale per user, it's picked up from your browser, querystring, etc).

    I'll get someone to look at this.
