Welllllll... it's done! Again thanks to @Stardisk we now have dynamic sorting available. When you create a new post you will see the following new features:
- A scroll bar for emotes. It will no longer fill up the entire screen
- An option to change the way emotes are sorted (default, by character, by emotion, by author)
- A checkbox to put the sorted emotes on separate lines rather than in a cluster.

It took a while, but I believe it has been more than worth it. Please let us know what you think!

Disclaimer: I added the "emotions" a bit arbitrarily. If you think a certain emote would with better in a different "Emotion" section, please let me know (here or through a PM).

Four things:
- If you activate separated rows mode and then deactivate it, title for first row won't disappear.
- Maybe we should sort by characters and by authors alphabetically. It will be more logical, and you will take less time to find your character/author.
- I think adding some padding between message textbox and settings panel would be good. :)
- I think, separated rows should be deactivated by default. It takes more time to scroll down every time you make new post, or edit your old post.

Everything else id perfect at first glimplse!! :D

Edit: About alphabitical order. I wrote that because I noticed that, for some reason, Cera is first (Because threehorns are the best in everything!  x(cera), though there's Ali, for example. Only now I noticed than a lot of charcters are placed in "Longnecks" category.Hmm, well, maybe it's better for the sake of page space, if separated rows is activated,  but not fair for individual characters' sake! XD

Yeah, this new arrangement of emotes is definitely much better now, especially now that we can scroll through the options, which effectively eliminates the one big complaint I had for a while. Now I can actually be completely okay with fanartists potentially adding new ones, as it will not take up any further screen space (it'll just mean more scrolling, which I don't mind at the current size of the list).

1) You're right, we'll fix this!
2) Yes, I had to group certain characters and emotions together to make sure the separate rows are not taking forever to scroll through. We can of course change certain groupings, but for now I've placed all characters with just 1 emote together with some others. We could add Ali (and Shorty, who received a similar treatment) to the "sidekick" group instead of longnecks, for example.
3) OK.
4) I believe it is deactivated by default.

    • Stardisk's strange digital corner
"By Default" sorting doesn't work.  - fixed
Checkbox "Display smileys on separate rows" doesn't save its state - fixed
Remaining the first heading row after uncheking the division checkbox - fixed
Padding required between field and smile sorting panel - instead of that we have moved the sorting panel above the emoticon panel, and added a margin between the emoticon panel and the message field

Also there are new features:
You can hide/show the whole emoticon panel
You can change the height of the emoticon panel by dragging its bottom right corner

Yes, thanks a ton. This is great. It is, it is. :yes

I wanted to inquire if this emote, originally from the server, could be added here at all.
