I don't know how hard it would be, or if it's even possible, but it would be cool to be able to since you can't do it now. For example if I try to type out "watashi", if I try to type it in hiragana it looks like わたし and if I try to type in kanji it looks like 私. Normally you can just type it out in romaji, but sometimes it's useful to be able to type in kana. There's someone on the PS4 board asking about button layouts and talking about how to make the "Fi" kana, but I can't show an example because the way this site works some funky things can happen when you try to type in Japanese.

Not really an urgent thing, but it would be nice to be able to do.

This would require unicode support which has been suggested many times before but would be a huge task to implement from what I have heard.

Every time this comes up the answer is that the Admins will decide if/when they implement this but topics here won't change anything.

Yeah, as far as I know, Unicode support is planned (that's not official though), but there are other things the admins are working on first - I know a big one they wanted to get done was using https instead of http (secure browsing), which I believe is pretty much done. I don't know the order they're working on other tasks, but I want to say that Unicode was said to be in the works at some point.

It's a pretty low priority, since this is an English-based website, but I do believe it's something the admins are not oppose to.

It would be nice if this website supported unicode.

I remember seeing this come up a couple of times, but I'd be glad to support it every times it does.
I've had more than several occasions where it would have come in handy.

Aside from clarity issues, romanizing also doesn't always work - for example if you need show "shi" "te" e.g. "You're welcome" in Japanese, it would get censored.

GameFAQs is an English forum only. And not everyone know how to speak Japanese.
