I create test user with non-US-ASCII characters in user name (e.g. ěščřžýáíéů), user is successfully created. If i go to search pannel and search for that user, user is found, i can display his detail. After cleaning cache in osqa installation directory I search that user again, it is found, but if i try to see his profile, i receive this error message: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc4 in position 6: ordinal not in range(128)

I have reported this issue http://jira.osqa.net/browse/OSQA-632

Check your database encoding.

@Hernani Cergueira: What should be the correct value for the database encoding in order to support usernames using characters from both Eastern European languages (such as mentioned in the post) and in same time Scandinavian names such as Björn and Bjørn?

we create database with this command: "create database osqa DEFAULT CHARACTER SET UTF8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;" and Eastern European languages is not working.
