Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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

Like Pekka

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 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 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.
