just testing the reddit eyes. probably won’t work.
It works on my Firefox (Windows XP).
Whoa. What is that?
The thread title underlining ruins the effect.
IvoryTowerDenizen - It’s a unicode ascii emoticon popularized by/on a website called reddit.com
I think it makes him look like he’s looking up over a table or something.
It’s called ‘look of disapproval’. The diacritical marking(?) kind of looks like furrowed brows.
Jesus! I see this thread and think “why the fuck is my Dad posting on the dope?”
Too bad the underline isn’t on top. That would make a perfect pair of glasses. OK, semiperfect. Flip the first smilie for perfect.
All I see is two squares with an underscore in between. Using Safari.
That’s what I saw in firefox on my Mac. Using tapatalk on my phone, I saw the eyes.
I’m on a Mac, using Firefox. I see squares with an underscore (no eyes) but the reason I clicked on it is those squares are identical to the characters I see in 90% of the spam I get. I was wondering what they are?
Why do they not show up when I quote the post?
Squares are what usually shows up when the character that’s supposed to be there isn’t supported by the computer/font/encoding being used. You might also see a ? or a blank space, or a square with something in it, or other gibberish characters.
Because they are in the title. If you want them, just use copy and paste.
Actually, I think the underline adds to it, makes it look sterner or something.
So what alphabet are the eyes taken from? I’m gathering, by some Dopers’ feedback, that it’s a not standard one, but since I’ve installed a lot of different alphabets on my system for the purpose of anthem research, there’s little that doesn’t appear here, I can easily see them.
(My guess is Arabic).
Not working in Safari.
Not working in Firefox.
Not working in Opera.
Kannada, which is an Indian script.
It’s likely to be a font problem, not a browser problem. I’m using Firefox and they display fine for me.
I think they prefer the term “First Nations” in Kannada.
