What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I see many members that have smiley faces at the end of their display name. How can we make those?

Copy such character () and paste in your username. – hims056 Jan 14 '13 at 9:10
I see, is there any list of them to choose from? – Hanky 웃 Panky Jan 14 '13 at 9:11
I don't know why people are voting to close, and now delete this, but it is very on-topic for Meta, and a reasonable support question. – Lance Roberts Jan 14 '13 at 16:49
Its funny how close works. This was a simple request to understand how a feature works for SO, i dont find it unrelated but i dont mind people closing it – Hanky 웃 Panky Jan 14 '13 at 17:11

That's not a smiley face; it's a Korean character.

Stack Exchange allows for Unicode characters in user's display names. You can add various things like snowman and arrows if you feel so inclined. Wikipedia has a List of Unicode Characters, and you can try to draw something and see if there's a unicode character for it.
