Using emoji cuts my post off

I tried to add some emoji and when I press 'Post', it gets cut off after the emoji?

    Testing  :blush: asdasdasd.
    Edit: Looks like it happens if I try to paste the actual emoji character instead of the :code: form

  • I don’t know the technical details about this forum’s software setup, but it seems to me like it’s having the exact same issue as: http://pento.net/2014/04/07/wordpress-and-utf-8/ (in short: the database’s encoding does not support characters not in Unicode’s BMP and cuts off posts as a result).
  • This is still an active bug, by the way – might be worth mentioning to the Vanilla team.
  • Please don't fix it.
  • :lol: Hrant you are such a party pooper.
