Just did some checking, that IP range is NOT blocked in any way, user is NOT on the ban list or the "On Probation" group and the forum seems to be working as it should ie: nobody else is having this problem.

I've done what I can here to determine if the problem is a forum issue but nothing in the logs and no reports from other users. The problem must be at the other end  :yes:

Hello,
It seems, that I found the problem:  the forum has problems with german umlauts.

Typing  umlaut-o  ( �produces simply a broken char.
Entering other umlauts for example umlaut-u (which is part of my forename) blocks/crashes the forum.

This has a list of all of the special chars that currently work in general text,

Are you using umlauts in post titles or filenames?

test

" ä  ë  �  "

" Ä Ë Ö Ü "

seems lowercase umlaut o and u don't work but they do on the page I referenced above ???, for the moment don't use lowercase umlaut o and u  :-\

when testing this ^^^^^ there is no crash, when the forum can't figure it out it just uses ? in a black diamond although it does seem to take a long time to get there

does this happen in the German language board ?

definitely the u with dots is causing it, had the same issue and came here to post.
(maybe other special chars too)

the bug is known, to get rid smf-forum suggests to do a complete re-install - which is not a task that we are up to at the moment.

so for now, please avoid u with 2dots, and the problem won't occur.
3d is still looking into it and might find a simpler solution.

I added (manually) a signature - and my forename contains the problematic umlaut u.
