dont tell him how to write the symbols, it should be kept as a secret for all of us non-conformists
Noncomformity is a not a result of knowing a certain keyboard function or using symbols in your name. In fact, I would argue the opposite is more true-->you conform to the trend like a sheep after Tensai started it.
I, however, just wanted to use an accent mark over a vowel (for french).
So you can totally keep your mainstream tildes to yourself as I would never want to jump on that bandwagon after you've tainted it anyway, angel
