Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 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.

@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

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
