 Thanks for the report, Cartographer.

 It's likely that this problem is similar to the problem described here
 https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/880 - the characters are
 being converted to unicode, and then being improperly truncated at some

 However, I was unable to reproduce this in my own tests. When I used the
 group forum name suggested in your description, all links work as
 expected. Here are the places I'm testing:
 - example.com/members/boone/forums/
 - example.com/activity
 - example.com/groups/my-group/

 The "2 minutes ago" links are pointing to the correct link in all cases.

 A couple questions for you:

 1. You talk about a "freshness column" in "Sitewide Activity". Can you
 clarify? The format of the activity stream (example.com/activity) does not
 have a separate "freshness" column. Instead, "2 minutes ago" appears just
 after the text "boone gorges started the topic Αυτός είναι ένας εξαιρετικά
 μεγάλος τίτλος in the forum My Group". Does this match what you're seeing?
 if you're seeing a separate column here - do you have any plugins or other
 modifications that are changing the way that your activity page looks?

 2. Can you describe your server configuration a little more? What version
 of PHP? What encoding do you have on your `wp_posts` and `wp_bp_activity`
 tables (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6103595/how-to-check-if-mysql-

 3. If possible, go into your database and find the following. (a) In the
 row in your wp_posts table corresponding to the forum post, get the
 'post_name' value. (b) In the corresponding row in wp_bp_activity, get the
 whole row. Share those values here so that we can compare.

 Thanks for your help debugging!
