How can you type three triangles in the shape of a triangle? So a ascii art of the Triforce from Zelda using the triangle symbol.

/b/ is a image board on 4chan. Text on this image board is edited by an automatic system which removes all preleading spaces. This makes ascii art quite difficult to achieve. There is a trick to it using a special space char. The alt code to get this space char in windows is Alt + 255 and the alt code to get the triangle in windows is Alt + 30.

What are the keyboard shortcuts to get these symbols on Ubuntu and how can I get them to work on 4chan?

What is a triforce? What do you mean by /b/? There are plenty of triangle-shaped characters, which one do you mean? You can look up the Unicode code point on Shapecatcher if you don't know it. –  Gilles Dec 19 '13 at 21:59

I think now it was clear. –  Avinash Raj Dec 20 '13 at 9:43

To get a triangle, type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type 25b2, then press Enter

To get the space, type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type a0, then press Enter

Edit: To answer the comment below:

Ctrl + Shift + u, then type a0, Ctrl + Shift + u, then type a0, type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type 25b2, then press Enter.

type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type 25b2, type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type a0, type Ctrl + Shift + u, then type 25b2

You'll get something like this

I knew that, but if you try that on /b/ you get the typical newfag triforce theultimateshowdown.net/images/NEWFAGS-CANT-TRIFORCE.jpg , what do you have to do to make a proper triforce? –  silvrfück Dec 19 '13 at 20:07
    
answering the edit, on youtube it works, but on 4chan it doesn't. I don't know what type of sorcery is behind this –  silvrfück Dec 19 '13 at 21:17
    
you have to use another space on 4chan. I've reflected this in the new edit –  Arno van der Weijden Dec 20 '13 at 10:06
    
which is the code for that? –  silvrfück Dec 20 '13 at 10:12
    
ctrl + shift + ua0 –  Arno van der Weijden Dec 20 '13 at 10:13
