Can you change the artist name "?" to "ö" in the archive? That would be the "?" who submitted "Rhymes with Lucia" and "Terror in Tiny Town". Both the file names were changed to "questionmark" for the artist name too, IIRC something about the server back then couldn't handle the non-standard characters. For what it's worth, on windows that's alt-0246.

Wöw! I never use the Numberpad which is apparently the only way the Alt+# works.

Yeah, I've got that on my TODO list, but, good to have a post here to keep track of it too.

Oh, thanks fluffy!

I was going to do that and at the same time make changes in the Jukebox database. I don't think its synching mechanism will handle this well. I'm guessing it'll wind up with both artists and duplicate songs, or, maybe it will just completely break, haha. I'll probably have a bunch more cleanup in the Jukebox db now. Oh well!

Oh, sorry about that. I figured you were just like importing the generated fights.json or whatever.

I am remembering now that it won't break things because the importing is super lazy. It polls the text data and reads until it sees a fight it already knows about and then doesn't read anymore. I never wrote any kind of "read the whole data set, perform a diff, update/insert/delete to synch up". So in this case I think changing this old data in the archive will have no effect and it won't be any more or less work for me to update things in the Jukebox to match even if I do it a while from now.
