Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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
