@Edent I don't think we want unicode hell
@year_2038 wow... So what should people who don't speak a language with a Latin alphabet do?
@Edent this is the username, people should be able to write it on basically any keyboard layout.
@year_2038 have you travelled the world? Lots of people don't use QWERTY.
Here are two of the keyboards I use regularly.
@Edent how did you type your mastodon instance url?
@Edent so do the same on your fricking username!
@year_2038 you're not a very compassionate person, are you?
@Edent look, the world speaks english, specially in the tech industry, so, if you have a solution to the hell that unicode brings, just say it. but this is a form of santization(on the tech meaning) on the plataform, and besides that, how the hell i will type a user name like 莎士比亚, if i don't speak chinese?
Only issue I can find was cloaed a year ago.
@Edent Sounds like a valid reason for closing that issue tbh.
It's nice to know there's a reasoned discussion on there.
