Comment (by robe):

 Okay I tested changing the usermeta table on staging2 that holds this info
 and then tried to update my profile.
 It worked after I explicitly changed the table columns.

 So doing ALTER TABLE .. table_name .. is not sufficient.

 Annoying.  Anyway I'm going to reload the table and write a script to
 convert all columns.

 Now only question is which utf to use.  Seems utf8mb_unicode is the more
 standard preferred so I'll try to go with that.
