Today, I found a thread on my site that had these symbols: ¥

And I want to stop that. I feel that it would attract un-wanted attention...

Where can I go in ACP to stop this in THREAD titles.

There is a word censor, but what you need is regex validation of thread titles which requires an addon.

Why are you afraid of attracting unwanted attention because of a non-latin character? What sort of unwanted attention?

Just curious, not trying to berate you or anything. :p

The same way "<3" attracts the wrong traffic. In vB in some versions of the code, these symbols attracted some trouble in regards to glitches. I remember at one point or another symbols like that caused some trouble for some vB sites. I forget which, but I somehow remember that symbols like that isn't ideal.

On top of that, the symbol that I posted is a Chinese one. I'm not Chinese.
