How to Post in the NEW Woot Community!


Yup.

Apparently there are different types of pictures - you’re right, a quick click DOES pull up all of the images you just posted - but if you go up to post 25 above, showing the dash-cam mode pic of an AT-AT “walker” on a snowy road, clicking does nothing. THAT was the most recent incentive for “gotta figure out how to capture that one”, BTW.

Have to ask, what IS that “ツ” character
between the parentheses made from? Has to be something the “system” generates from a multi-character combo… Google mostly sucks at searching for un-named graphics.

¯\(ツ)/¯…¯\(《ツ》)/¯… ツ

Also obvious the “system” USES (and won’t always DISPLAY) the “back-slash” character, probably unless preceded by some “skip the next character” flag… ahh, a double back-slash displays right. That sweet sense of discovery!

I Googled “shruggie”, and added 2 backslashes.

I then added it as a custom word in Gboard.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Gboard? Found it! You trust that app?

One aggravating behavior here - I leave to research something, and have to enter the app from scratch, it doesn’t preserve where I was…

To Gboard, or to adding custom words?

I use a Pixel 3a, so it’s a matter of less apps have access to my stuff.

(Though I did disable certain things in the app.)

Found it, thanks - now to ponder a new tool…
