PM's: SQL Error

Postby Chakra Superstar » Tue Dec 15, 2020 10:40 pm

Hi Carleas,
I'm having problems sending PM's. I've been getting this message even when I go to save a draft. I've signed out and rebooted my machine but still the same problem.
The error message below says it's a database error. Thanks.

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]
Incorrect string value: '\xF0\x9F\x98\x8A. ...' for column 'draft_message' at row 1 [1366]
An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.

Sometimes people don't respond quickly because they want to appear busy.

I used to do that when I worked for the government.
My boss got mad at me and told me to answer immediately.
So when when a call came through, I'd answer: "911. What's your emergency?"
then put them on hold and pretended I had other calls.

Me: “911, sorry to keep you waiting. What is your emergency?”

Caller: “Oh my god. I’m in the woods. I was hunting with my friend and I think I accidently killed him. Oh my god what am I going to do?”

Me: “Stay calm, sir. The first thing I want you to do is to make sure he really is dead.”

BANG!!!

Caller: “OK, now what?

Me: :-?

Me: “911. What’s your emergency?”

Caller: “There’s a massive fight going on right now. Please send the cops.”

Me: “Whose fighting? Do they have any weapons?”

Caller: “There are two girls fighting. They don’t have any weapons but they’re fighting over me.”

Me: “And why is this an emergency?

Caller: The ugly one is winning.

Me: "911, What's your emergency?"

Caller: "I'd like to report a kidnapping"

Me: "OK. How old is the child?"

Caller: "He's three. (sobbing... ) He wandered off into his bedroom and... "

Me: "Don't worry. Just let him nap. He'll be up and about and about in an hour or so. Bye"

Caller: :shock:

Me: "911 What's your emergency?"

Caller: "My husband has crushing pains in his chest. I think he might be having a stroke"

Me: "Don't worry, ma'am. Emergency services are on their way. Just remain calm and stay with him until they arrive."

Caller: "How long will the ambulance be?"

Me: "About 5 metres."

All's good. It's working now.

For your info, Carleas, in case you get the same error message down the track:
I wrote this message on Word and added a smilie. The system doesn't like smilies from other programs and wouldn't send.

Thanks for all your help. :lol:
I couldn't have done in without you. 8)

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Huh! - MagsJ

They're so corny and cringy as not to be funny.

My dad got to appreciate that if I found him funny I’d laugh, but if I didn’t.. which was oftentimes, I at least appreciated the joke due to his effort in making it.

He made me his wing-woman when I was 17, if that helps with context. :)

Yeah, dads and their jokes are great.
I have a couple of cute Asian girls who call me ‘daddy’ and like my jokes.

We’ll need a context, of course..

:lol: Yea, but I’m just messing though.. ; )

The context being.. are they your daughters or somebody else’s?
Two Asian girls that call you daddy, is a bit obtuse..

Interesting and good to know, thanks Chakra. I did not know that certain characters were forbidden.

Of course, the real solution is just stop using smilies.

Noooooo!!!! A post without smilies is like a woman with Botox - they’re both hard to read
