What's with the question marks?

I've noticed recently that a lot users (myself not included) aren't able write in some symbols. Instead there's just a question mark in place. What is causing this?

I've noticed this on other sites and even text messages. I was wondering the same thing.

I've noticed it isn't just new posts either, an older thread now has symbols in it's title instead of what it was originally.

My guess is someone has messed with the character table of the forum, stuff like unicode or UTF-8. Maybe they updated something on vBulletin or a setting of the server that hosts the board.
At first I thought it was because I'm a Linux user but then I noticed it's the same on other systems.

That's not the only fault. I'm now getting ?€œ instead of apostrophes
