Quoting members with brackets in there names

Question

Guest Ryan   

Sometimes quoting a member with brackets in their name doesn't properly work. Sometimes it does. AFAIK the only way to fix it is to go back and make an edit removing the brackets. Sometimes I'll see that even if you were successful with the quote, but go back to edit something else in the post and submit it, it'll break. And vice versa, you could fail but go back and edit and submit it and than it'll be fixed.

Is this even a fixable bug? Is Invision aware of it? Is there a better way to fix it other than going back and making an edit? Or are you just going to have to hope you're lucky and your quote of a member with brackets in their name works the first time?

I haven't noticed that bug myself but I have noticed an increase in the number of users that user brackets and the number of users that use the trademark symbol.

I tried asking for it without it, but at the time a "Ryan" all ready existed. And well supposedly even though he was inactive and had no posts they couldn't delete him so I'm stuck with this for now I guess. All though after searching now he's not there. I wonder if I could get it without the trademark now.

You mean like [beta code] for example?

Invision is already aware of this...

Ah that's good. When do they think they could fix it? Is it fixable?

Has this always been a bug since IPB has been around? Or only in certain versions?

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's a matter of luck I guess.

I see it in my name sometimes.

Happens to anybody with brackets in their names.
