I noticed that some notable contributors have the emoji next to their username, and when hovered it says “Breaking the Great Firewall of China”, and I was just wondering what that signifies.
What you have described is called a custom status. You can install it in the account settings section. For him, you set up an emoji and a short text that can describe what you are currently doing, for example, studying something. You can also specify the time when your status will be reset.
What @KAlexK said is how they did it. As to what it signifies, it seems to be a pun on “the Great Wall of China” and the users may be upset with China. I haven’t noticed any of these but I don’t usually hover over statuses.
Thank you both for letting me know
You could tap on the status to view it. But recently, (may be because of the Discourse update) you need to long press on the status to view it.
