It seems like more or less every extended character (typographic, foreign letters, etc.) in every old post has been mangled. Is it not possible to fix this?

If you can give me examples of the mangled characters, and what they should be (i.e. "%$£ should be €"), I can probably fix each instance.  Otherwise, I'm afraid not.

Suggestion:

I was thinking we should try to make more use of the calendar for things like competition deadlines as well as other important AGS and wider adventure-related dates (Mittens, AdvX and other conferences and meetups, upcoming game release dates, etc.).

That said, there are a lot of birthday names on the calendar which would probably make it difficult to see anything else on there anyway. With that in mind, would it be possible to add a button to the calendar page to toggle the birthdays on and off (to make anything else people might add to it more visible)?

I've set birthdays to only be listed on the forums index.

Ahh cool, thanks.

Now we have to fill all that blank space with juicy content.

There is a problem with the result of game search. If the screenshot is wider than 4:3 the text overlaps. You can see a few examples when searching for non-English games (https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/search/game_lengths:1,6,0,15;genres:1,2,3,4,5,0;game_types:1,2,3,4,5,0;story_types:1,2,3,4,5,0;commercial:1;languages:43,53,164;operating_systems:1/1/name/asc/)
