CHANGE: Real name now allows apostrophes

    My last name uses an apostrophe and "edit profile" doesn't let me leave the way it was and is.

      Currently the "Real Name" does not support some special characters including the apostrophe. You should see a warning to that effect as well ("Real Name field must not contain any special characters.").
      That being said, I have sent a request to our engineering team to see if we can add support for this character.

      @calculus-geometry Had a good work around.

        Thanks Matthew Meyer! Blessings! I just noticed the apostrophe is back, now it reads well. Thanks it's just an honor to my roots.

          It should actually be the character that calculus-geometry suggested.
          We are, however, going to add support for the apostrophe in the real name field as well. I will update this thread when it is finished.

      Support for the apostrophe has now been added!
      @Lastheart I also changed it to that character for your real name field (from the right curly single quote)

    Just to add to what Maggie stated, it should be O'Farrill, not OFarrill.

    Ok,  thanks I should have explained that part.

    I just tested this and I also discovered I could not add an apostrophe in the real name field. (Nor did using the iso code & # 39 ; work.) I did find a work-around that you could use in the mean time, the right curly single quote symbol.  Copy and paste this:

      Ok thanks so much, I'll try it. I'll let know results in case it may help others. Thanks!
