Is it OK to Use symbols in posts OR thread titles?

Not many people know that you can do this.

But if you Hold ALT+ any number you get a symbol/letter

1=☺☺☺
2=☻☻☻
3=♥♥♥

etc. all the way to 999.

That doesn't work for me ...

Alt + a number gives me (nothing) it's blank.

I don't see anything in the T&C that would prevent that. So long as it does not distract from the actual information in the thread, I don't see it being a problem...

I would personally much rather see it after a hilarious statement, or anything sarcastic so that it doesnt get misinterpreted.
Or better yet, how about using a smiley when something is actually worth smiling about instead of trying to be cute.

I tried and all my computer does is simply keep making this annoying "bing" sound.

I have to call BS on this one.

You know the drill, pictures or its a hoax

Can you provide us with the remaining 252 characters?
You only supplied us with the first 3.

I wonder if 10 and 13 could cause problems though?
Mods?

You have to use the number pad, not the numbers at the top of the keyboard. ☺

My concern has to do if 10 and 13 can actually be mistaken for a Line Feed or Carriage Return by some browsers or operating systems.

Ok here is how its done:

Hold ALT+ then use the number pad to the right

to get 10 you will press 1 then 0.

to get 125 you will presss 1 then 2 then 5. while holding ALT.

when you let go of ALT. you will see :

Just remember, by adding a symbol to you thread subject/title it may alter your thread in the search results...
