Fuck mysql charset shit. Pretty easy to forgot setting charset in server side config file. And after creating several databases/tables, boom! All in latin1. That's just so convenient. are you kidding me? Why would any modern database have their default charset to be latin1??? rather than utf8? Oh, just forgot again, that's utf8fuckingmb4 on mysql land.

    At least MySQL has utf8mb4 and utf8mb4_unicode_ci. PostgreSQL uses some fucked up libc collation stuff that's not even unicode as far as I can tell

    If latin1 and installed from distributor, blame the distribution.

    Utf8mb4? Have fun using strings as primary keys. Like for uuid primary keys. 76 bytes for max length, if I remember correctly. Nah, I stick with regular utf8

    @TheCommoner282 For gods sake please don't tell me you aren't using utf8mb4
