Unable to post posts containing emojis

Post by toroidalet » August 22nd, 2017, 10:33 pm

While trying to make a post to the random posts containing a poop emoji I got the following error:

What's really weird is that they render fine in the preview menu but give this error when sending the post.

I can confirm this bug. I don't get why this would happen??

typing \xF0\x9F\x92\xA9 doesn't do anything
\100\97\110\105

It represents a poop emoji (or potentially anything unicode that isn't supported). Changing the symbol will probably give a different code. I would presume the bug would be because the forums don't have support for emojis, but it renders fine in the preview, which is confusing.
