Title: Apostrophe issue
Post by: drinkanddestroy on December 09, 2020, 06:40:46 PM
When I view the site on my MacBook or iPhone, what people typed as apostrophes often look like a question mark. Is this happening to anyone else?

I have reached out to the administrator many times but he has not replied. In the meantime, I suggest we try to avoid using contractions to limit the apostrophes.

Happening for me with quotation marks as well, that they are coming up as question marks.

Anyone else having this issue?

The message above shows up for me as question marks, not as apostrophe or quote. What about you?

Today: my post from yesterday shows up like it should, but drinkanddestroy's shows up as two question marks.  This is way beyond my pay grade....

It depends on what device/browser the message was posted from, not what device the reader is using.

My messages are mostly either posted from an iPhone on safari, or a MacBook on firefox.
On rare occasions I post something from work, which is a PC with firefox

I don?t think this site has an admin right now. The lunatics are running the asylum.

I hope DJ saved the encyclopedia somewhere because that board could vanish in the void any second.

Our French belle probably owns it already, he's just ashamed to admit he did it in order to have us as his friends.

That might also explain why we haven't heard from PowerRR lately. Gone . . . as though he never existed!

Gotta hand it to you--that actor you hired to play him at our October meet-up last year did such a good job it kept me fooled for weeks.

Still. He laughed way to much to Drink?s fake farts videos. I told him he overacted and gave him a bad tip.

After the beers I even got a full lap dance. But the farts videos started even before lunch so you have no excuse.

I was given an ipad and have been increasingly using it to access this forum. As a result, all my posts have been becoming garbled in this way.

I have, however, just found out how to prevent it. Settings > general > keyboard. Then turn off "smart punctuation" because clearly it does not live up to its name :)
