OpenTTD website account signup shows some text in Japanese

Post by Wormnest » 27 Jul 2013 15:42

I was trying to create an account on OpenTTD and part of the text shows in Japanese. That makes it difficult to know what you're supposed to enter.
Tested both in FireFox and IE.

Adding a picture showing the problem since it's still the same.
This might cause people trying to signup think that the website was hacked.

I made a report about this 7 months ago. I don't think they're too anxious to look into it.

Maybe now. I mean, it´s a difference between Portuguese and Japanese ...

I don't exactly know how you got there. Nevertheless I know that the thing is reproducable.

If you can't guess, the meaning of the fields is in order top to bottom:

username
e-mail
real name
password
password (again)

We are anxious to fix it, but all attempts to fix it have failed. We have run out of ideas why this is happening, and out of ideas to solve it.

That is, we have no clue what is wrong, or why :(

I know exactly what goes wrong, and why. Sorry :P


Once in a blue moon this problem arrises, it gets fixed, and at the other end of it comes the same problem. It is a bit annoying .. it feels that game where you have to hit rabbits or what-ever .. you hit one, it goes back in the hole, and out of the next hole comes the next.


Either way, the problem has been fixed for good now, by just disabling the whole language system. Works fine, so this shouldn't bother you anymore. It btw only happened for account.openttd.org, only in very specific situations (a blue moon :P), and only for a limited amount of strings (like username, password, email) .. not the hardest fields to guess :D But it seems to trouble people enough, so there, it is fixed :)
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
