Description (last modified by gwilson)

I get this error:

DjangoUnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2 in position 0: ordinal not in range(128). You passed in DjangoUnicodeDecodeError('ascii', '\xc2\xbfProbando una pregunta? -> ', 0, 1, 'ordinal not in range(128)') (<class 'django.utils.encoding.DjangoUnicodeDecodeError'>)

when I try to delete an object from the admin zone. The character ¿ breaks it.

More info. Model:

class Encuesta( models.Model ):
    pregunta = models.CharField( max_length=255 )

    def __unicode__( self ):
        return self.pregunta

I can't reproduce it so far in admin.

The only way I found to get similar errors is to do sth like :

obj.pregunta = '\xc2\xbfProbando una pregunta? -> '

But aren't we supposed to do :
obj.pregunta = u'\xc2\xbfProbando una pregunta? -> ' # add u

or to get the same output :
obj.pregunta = u'\xbfProbando una pregunta? -> '

My poor knowledge in Django unicode internals don't allow me to go further :(

these one helped me:

def unicode(self):

return u'%s' % self.user

Comment 7 seems sane to me, please re-open / slap me if I'm wrong.
