When you are creating or replying to a post, the editing page contains 17 large animated smiley icons, right above where you’re typing. These animations are large, distracting, and annoying. I don’t mind the few I see while reading posts, but having so many of them in one place is driving me nuts! Is there some way to turn these things off, so they don’t display while I’m typing a message? If not, could you please add an option to turn them off?
If possible, I think showing or hiding the “list of smileys” would be best as a forum preference in your profile. This would determine if the smileys are visible by default, but no matter what they would be available on the edit page.
