Aesthetic bug reports, from a FFXI forum userFollow

I dunno what's up with any of these things, but they keep popping up when I use the FFXI subforums, so I figured I'd at least say something.

Topics such as this this thread have the HTML special characters in their titles. Something like PHP's html_entity_decode() seems in order.

Editing a post 'll lead to a 404 page - the post goes through fine, just that you're not returned to the topic itself properly.

Also a suggestion for the FFXI pages, though I'm not sure if this is the place for it - on the FFXI Races page, only only the Lv1 stats on the FFXI job/race combinations are given - and this often leads to confusion and misguiding situations with new players. For example, a lot of people still believe that Galkas and Elvaan have the same STR stat, because at Lv1, they don't differ yet, and this that page lists them as identical ... however, at Lv75, the Elvaan STR stat is higher than the Galkan. Thus it might be a good idea to not only list the Lv1 stats, but also the Lv50, Lv70 or Lv75 stats for the job/race combinations.

Dunno what use you guys might have about any of this, but .. *shrugs*

Fixed the incorrect redirection on edit, thanks.

html entitites in subject lines are getting transformed 3 times, I'm re-working the escape on the backend. problem is something along the lines that it's actually 4 ampersands by the time it gets to that display, and a few amp; inbetween for good measure.

Spiffy. The editing is a whole lot more comfy to perform, now.

(Oh, and since I'm in a weird mood ~

Hnn, strange .. I seem to have problems with not posting anonymously. Twice now, I posted anonymously without logging out, or ticking the "Post Anonymously" box, after which I was logged in again - it also said there was an anonymous user browsing this thread just after, which I'm rather sure would be me.

Problem could be locally, though. This PC is rather .. meh.
