Feature: Footnotes
Developer: Nao
Target: users, geeks
Status: 99% (one minor bug left to fix. Doesn't happen much often.)

This is THE other feature (apart from auto-saved drafts) for you übergeeks who like to speak a lot. You're just like me, you can't stop yourself from drifting into off-topic territory and discuss which 4th season is the best between Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica[1] when you originally posted to flame someone who gave bad hints on how to bake sour dough. Well, just use the nb tag and be done with it. Separate your content from the aside.
 1. Personally, I think it's a draw.

I really, really like the way this is implemented, very simple and intuitive.

Also, not really sure when this sugestion might go to, but is it possible to have the option to make the more smilies button not bring out a popup and instead expand and show all the smilies? I find that I don't use all the smilies more often because I don't want to have to go through the trouble of having to go fetch the popup. As a user, I would find it more simple and direct to just expand the list on the spot.

Yeah I can't live without my footnotes :)

Smileys are unrelated to this topic eheh.
The problem with 'more smileys' is that the popup is actually a JavaScript template that gets called when clicked. It's a PITA to style and everything. Believe me, I've been there... Pete and I decided that the best way would be to turn it into a regular popup, but I haven't even started work on it (so much to do, so little time...)

Although your suggestion of having them show up below the regular line of smileys is actually quite good (and just as easy to do.) I think I'm gonna go for this...
