Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I humbly request the following toolbar buttons when composing a new question:

New buttons...lotsa buttons....ugly buttons :(

Notice the addition of four new buttons. I will briefly describe their functions below:

  • Freehand circle button - automatically infers (based on context) where a freehand circle needs to be placed within the picture immediately preceeding the cursor.
  • Insert Jon Skeet's profile - inserts a link to Jon Skeet's profile (what did you expect?).
  • Unicornify page - Generates a hash of the current contents of the question and passes it off to the wonderful Unicornify service.
  • Waffle - not implemented yet - should be complete within 6 - 8 weeks

Note: I may have missed some buttons when planning, so please add any you think I missed.

WHO MADE [always-friday-in-iceland] A SYNONYM FOR [fun] ?!?!?! – user27414 Nov 5 '10 at 18:27
@Jon Since it was done by popular demand, I'd say everyone made the synonym. – Grace Note Nov 5 '10 at 18:28
@Jon: I just noticed that!!!! Shame on them! – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 5 '10 at 18:28
@Grace Note don't drag me into this. Only four people had to approve that change, and I wasn't one of them. I'm with Jon. – Pops Nov 5 '10 at 18:53
The Unicornify icon should use the person's unicorn avatar, not a generic one. Can't get enough of mine's googly eyes. – tvanfosson Nov 5 '10 at 18:56
-1 No freehand circles. – Jon Seigel Nov 5 '10 at 22:12
@Jon: LOOK AT THE FIRST BUTTON!!! – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 6 '10 at 19:44
The button is part of the UI. It can't possibly be a freehand circle. – Jon Seigel Nov 7 '10 at 18:20
@Jon: the RED button :) – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 8 '10 at 4:19
@George: What he means is, a button of a freehand circle is not a freehand circle in and of itself. – The Unhandled Exception Nov 9 '10 at 22:16

This button changes all backwards smilies in StackExchange™ ForwardLooking ApprovedSmilies™. Useful for quick fixing of heretically-aligned smilies.

Alternative icon: rchern

+1 - just for the icon alone. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 5 '10 at 18:24
How offensive! ): – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 5 '10 at 18:26
Why is your smiley using a happy ) then? Oh, sorry, I read it wrong.. – The Unhandled Exception Nov 5 '10 at 18:28

You forgot the jQuery button! It inserts jQuery code, which always be used:

Well, when composing questions, that doesn't really make sense... :) – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 5 '10 at 18:29
A++, would code again – badp Nov 5 '10 at 18:30
@George: Blasphemy! What is this "When doing x jQuery doesn't really make sense..." you speak? I thought jQuery was always the answer! – The Unhandled Exception Nov 5 '10 at 18:46
But it can't answer a question that hasn't been asked... can it? – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Nov 5 '10 at 18:48
@George: Yes thanks. Answer updated :-) – The Unhandled Exception Nov 5 '10 at 18:50
