For some strange reason sometimes when I'm on a wiki questions marks randomly appear between my spaces. Is this some kind of bug? How do I stop it?

Could you please link to, or screen capture, this? Btw, plz don't remove the forum header in future — otherwise nobody will know you've posted! :) Starfleet Academy (Messages) 01:30, November 24, 2012 (UTC)
I've seen something like this a couple times, where extra question marks show up in article comments: example 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 01:58 UTC, Saturday, 24 November 2012
A similar thing happens in blogs and blog comments on DFWiki. This is an example. -LeoLab 02:17, November 24, 2012 (UTC)

We're experiencing this on Tiny Village wiki, too. Just last 48 hours. Happens in visual mode and when you double space after a period or insert/edit a link. We have a number of members complaining.

The more people report, the more details Staff will know, like the extent of the problem, user prefs affected etc. TK-999 (talk) 13:37, November 24, 2012 (UTC)
Have made the report. Hope it's fixed soon.

Wow...I didn't expect to get so many replies on here. Usually I get zero to one. Eh...okay. I'll report the bug.

I can confirm this is happening here too. It seems that editing from the source editor removes it, but I've only done that once so that may or may not be true. Dunewolfz (talk)

I can confirm that this is a glitch happening on different wikis. I've seen it occur on mainspace pages, blog comments, and message wall messages.
