    The guys on my board did not have symbols in their names. The common thread with them was a lack of email address. I'm not sure if the bug caused that or if that is what caused the bug, though.
     
    either way, the fix is not too difficult. Just was scary when I first noticed.

    This isn't the first  time it has been brought up by someone. I just have heard several complaints since upgrading and this is one I agree with.

    Please fix this. This is a great idea for a mod. Will change five stars if working.

    Same here. Working through it.

    Currently, it is pretty cumbersome at times to type on it. Some things go off the side of the screen and when text goes below the typepad area it does not consistently follow it. This means you'll be typing without actually seeing the words you are typing. This is actually happening right now as I type this. 
     
    It it seems to be because the message box expands. The height should be fixed for mobile with scrolling. That should fix that issue.

    Actually, here it is quickly:
    Go to phpMyAdmin  and select your forum database.Open another tab or window and do the same thing.In one of those, open the x_utf_ipb_core_members table and in the other one open the ipb_members table.You will see that this person exists in the ipb_members table, but not the other one. You need to get their information over to the other table. You can do this with an SQL query but I am just going to go with a more manual route for this since not all of the columns exist in both.Find the person in the ipb_members table. An easy way to do this is to click 'Search' and then enter their user name under name.Once you find them, click 'Edit' on the left side of the row.Go to the other window and click 'Copy' beside one of those rows.Now you just copy any data fields that exists in both tables from the fields in the ipb_members window to the corresponding fields in the x_utf_ipb_core_members window. These aren't always named the exact same thing.When you are done, click 'Go' in the x_utf_ipb_core_members window at the bottom. 
    That worked for me and worked well. Make sure you add their email.

    ​Okay, I figured out how to rebuild them. They live in one table, but not another. If they don't have email addresses, they do not get ported over. I'll put together a tutorial sometime soon. Expect it to be rough and quick since I am still putting out other fires.

    I'm just waiting for IPB at this point. I found both of them in the database and without emails. I've added their emails and nothing. They can't log in and I can't find them outside of MySQL.
    Annoying. Big time.

    Turns out it's impacting more than just the one and these guys are some of my most important posters. I have submitted a ticket and hope it gets worked on before Tuesday. They should not have to wait that long.

    I ended up finding the posts in the database with a user assigned but that user was deleted from the members table. I was able change the user name they created today to have the old ID. I also had a bunch that did not have that user name and user id that I was able to assign based on his IP. His posts no longer show Guest. Now how do I rebuild their post count?

    Well, I just upgraded and it deleted an account with no special letters. I regret upgrading already.

    This is the type of thing they don't want you to submit a ticket over but will never address here.

    The reason why this matters is that it would look bad to people on the site to think traffic dropped after an upgrade when all that happened was that it was previously counting a longer time. It could be detrimental to a community.

    Did anyone figure this out?
