Bought ens domain, but the image is "invalid name" : ◕ω◕.eth is not in normalized form

So I bought: ◕ω◕.eth as ens domain when checking the nft on the market places it shows that the name is invalid.
When calling the metadata.ens api I get back that the name is not normalized? (also the image link is telling me the name is invalid? )
I bought the ens domain with the website, I did not interacted directly with the smart contract.

When typing: ◕ω◕.eth in metamask and or etherscan it finds my address. Etherscan is also able to pull the correct image? I guess they use something else then the api?

Could someone shine some light on my problem and how I can resolve this


Api callback:

{“is_normalized”:false,“name”:"[0x52b1…369e].eth",“description”:"[0x52b1…369e].eth, an ENS name. (◕ω◕.eth is not in normalized form) ⚠️ ATTENTION: This name contains non-ASCII characters as shown above. Please be aware that there are characters that look identical or very similar to English letters, especially characters from Cyrillic and Greek.

Hi @0xcryptonaut.eth welcome to the forums!

There’s an open issue for this situation in github. As far as I know it’s being worked on, but I don’t know an ETA. You can read a bit more about it here: Seemingly valid names are being reported as invalid by metadata service · Issue #71 · ensdomains/ens-metadata-service · GitHub

Feel free to comment on the issue there as well.


@zadok7 Thanks that helps. Now I know I am not alone hehe
