Incorrect Emoji Encoding in the Database: Garbled Characters Instead of Emojis

In this situation, it appears that emojis are being stored in the database with the wrong encoding, resulting in display issues. As a consequence, instead of rendering the emojis correctly, the database is storing them as garbled characters represented as “����.”

Please refer to the images below for a visual representation of the problem:

Hi :wave:t5:

According to this StackOverflow thread, it seems it might be more of an issue with your SQL database’s setting than Make itself.

The “utf8mb4” encoding should be set in the database connection, table and database.
