xat should add some consistency to the way symbols are handled through the site in order to avoid confusion.
Currently, some pages such as as Register, Login and Change Password automatically stripe symbols from passwords, while other areas of xat such as Edit Your Profile, Trade and Transfer Engines or the Ticket System do not. Users are often confused as for why they are able to log in and perform certain actions with their password but they get an incorrect password message at times.
We should either allow or completely stripe symbols from the site, while the second option is the most likely to be done. That said, a reminder should also be added to the Register and Change Password forms, letting the user know symbols are going to be stripped from their password.
Add a random symbol to your password when attempting to edit your profile, use the Trade or Transfer engines or logging into the ticket system; you will get an incorrect password error.
