Questions received last month:

Some tokens with emoji names/symbols aren't shown properly. Why?
Etherscan doesn't display emojis (or unicode characters) in token name or symbols unless the token has its information verified and updated. If your favorite emoji-laden token isn't updated yet, get the team to update it.

Sometimes my address's token balance isn't updated until later. Why?
For non-standard erc-20 token transfers (such as a WETH deposit), the token balance may not be updated in the address page immediately. In this case, it will take a page refresh or two to load.
