Funny... I used to type some French accented characters in my posts and they would get clipped in the old forum. I didn't even know that was a bug but I noticed it only recently and it was annoying. Here are some French, German and Spanish words as a test here since I am pretty good in all those languages:The new forum looks fantastic. Haven't encountered any bugs yet, although I still need to test some of the special characters that previously resulted in posts getting cut. Once the new VIP thingamabob is established I will finally put my money where my mouth is.
The only negative thing I've noticed is that stickied threads don't really stand out from the rest which can be a tad confusing. I've no idea about the features of the new forum version but it would be nice to have stickied threads stand out with a different colour or something.
French: belvédère (lookout/viewpoint) - 2 different accents
German: Fußgängerübergang (pedestrian crossing) - 3 different accents
Spanish: mañana (tomorrow) - 1 accent
BTW - you're right about the sticky threads not standing out.
