Does the person you've been trying to PM have a special character in his/her name? If so, that's the case

I'm trying to PM ?Latias? back.

EDIT: whoa O.o in his/her name it has the hearts but it does the "?" O.o

That's the problem. Its an error in the new server; it dosen't reconize special charcaters, and replaces theam with ? marks

Nope. The least Joe could've done is allowed people to change their names regardless of the two-month rule if they have a special character in it, but it seems for some reason even that's unmanegable =/

Any Administer can change names and I am sure giving the circumstances would gladly change the name if you nicely asked one. ;025;

But...the name change thread is closed. Quite a predicament, no?

But waiting for the fixes to occur is a nice first step.

repeating myself yet again
we're working on the character problem.

In regards to name changes, fox hasnt been able to do them lately
i will get to it when im not super busy with college applications and schoolwork. It takes a lot of time to do, is highly annoying, and boring.

Funniest thing I've seen all day. Except my friend's jokes. On-topic: It happened when the forums were hacked, right? Hmm......Another forum I'm in, Pokebeach, had the same problem. Only the hackers were Turkish. *sees the people staring at her* I don't know how to hack! I'm innocent!
