The superuser logo has a square bracket and a curly bracket. is there a keyboard or ascii character for the "eye" dot?
It's no worse than the "How do I create ASCII smiles" thread!– William HilsumOct 28, 2010 at 14:50
@Wil Wellllll.... I guess so. Hmmmm. On second thought it might not be particularly meta-ish.– DMA57361Oct 28, 2010 at 14:55
1I have edited it to be more question-ish. I think this will be a good thread, who can create the logo closest to the real one!– William HilsumOct 28, 2010 at 14:56
Hmm, this won't qualify for migration anymore. Nice edit @Wil– Sathyajith Bhat ModOct 28, 2010 at 15:35
The horizontal spacing is off, and obviously the curly bracket doesn't have the vertical asymmetry of the real icon, but how about the following?
Here's a smaller version, which has better horizontal spacing, assuming you can see it:
However, this is a bit of a cheat as I'm using a unicode dot ( • ) and then making it superscript and italic...

The best I got is [·} which was done with the 'middle dot' (Alt+0183) I don't think the spacing will allow you to actually create the logo just the ASCII chars
Also, if you take a close look at the logo, the curly braket is different on top and bottom. There's a forehead and a chin
You just need to find the right font ;)

Ok - Kind of lame, I'll try to do better!
I don't think the spacing would work regardless, its not possible to get the eye dot inside of the bracket the way it is in the logo.
is the best that I got.
(It's his day off, and he's lying in)
It obviously depends on character sets and fonts. I'm sure there must be many Unicode characters that would serve that purpose.
Closest I can get. [ + DOT ABOVE (U+02D9) (italic) + } Eye should probably be slightly lower and to the left, but whatever.
