The "special" characters, that the page you linked to presents, are the extended set (bringing the number of character up to 256) which were defined by a myriad of so-called code pages. Each code page had extra characters (not used in the standard English for which ASCII was design) to enable different countries to communicate, using computer systems, in their own language. How each of these extended characters appears depend on the code page being used to interpret them.

That, as Cats alluded, is all historical. The modern approach to character encoding is Unicode, which is designed to represent "most" of the world written languages. So to answer what is probably the real question behind your post, yes there are larger tables. Much larger tables. Note: How (or indeed if) each of the characters presented on the Unicode site appears to someone viewing the forum (as I assume by "use here" you mean for things like your user title?) depends on the font we've used in the forum's template. Not all Unicode fonts cope with all Unicode characters. In fact I don't think any font copes with them all yet, though some in the 30K-50K range cover most someone is likely to need. Also you should keep in mind that the forum isn't set-up for Unicode. We're still using the ISO-8859-1 encoding; Latin1 I think it is at a database level. We should move to UTF-8 really, but there are so many issues in doing that, that we've not attempted it yet. Which I believe means the length of your user title is counted in bytes not in characters, so higher Unicode characters (that are represented by more than one byte) take up more of the space allowed, as some people have noticed (check the feedback forum).

Incidentally, what you call "special asciis" should more correctly be termed special characters1, and they are only special if you don't happen to use them in your own language. I think that is also part of what Cats means by you're confusing the two.

___________
1 Unless you are actually talking strictly about the "special" ASCII control characters, which have limited meaning visually as they are commonly not printable. I've noticed recently that whatever font Fire Fox uses has each of them corresponding to a glyph of a little box, with a number in it, telling me which Unicode character it is.
>.< I never knew... Thanks for the information.

I believe this was disscussed in this thread some time ago but, here it goes again cause I forgot and I do believe the FAQs does not cover it.

Is there a way to individually delete each private message you get do you only have to go by the option of deleting the "inbox" or "sent Items" only?

Of course the purpose of this is only for keeping "specific" PMs that I would rather keep in my inbox even though it's old.

Just a guess, but they might be larger than the size limits imposed on gallery items. In the past the forum software would tell you when a file was larger than the limits. Now the software grabs the first frame of an animation and displays just that (and in a reduced-quality version as well). I encountered the problem originally when trying to upload an oversized avatar.

The gallery size limits are:
Maximum File Size per Picture 97.7 KB
Maximum Picture Dimensions 600 by 600 Pixels

Upload the pics in question to a host site such as Imageshack (there are several others) and then copy paste the Thumbnail for forums code given to you there.

EDIT:

Oh, I just remembered a post Cats made that explains this in much better detail.

Has it ever happened to you?

Someone says ten different things to you in a conversation and you end up remembering three of those for many years to come. It happens to me all the time, and I don't seem to have much control over it.

I am sure it happens to others as well, it's just that in my case I tend to make a lot of posts about it.

You mean the button in the quote above.

[ QUOTE=Deryns;1818234 ]
every post has a count number -> here red
a name from whom the post was -> here green
and the quote tag with an added ;

The ; is separating the name from the post count and if you add a post count (from the right post ) to the quote tag you get the button you want.

But it is easier to click directly on the "quote"-Button in the lower right corner of a post

Technically, yes. Practically for you, maybe not. AMV appears to be a proprietary format and the specification is closed to the public. So, while a converter might exist (and it is technically possible to convert), it is probably not publicly available. Someone on a site focused on video related topics might know more.

Try this site videohelp.com
They have multiple guids for converting something to another something
But it could be that you have to convert mkv to avi and then to amv.
