Is there any way to get rid of the little sample "Emoticons" to the left of the message composition page? When the site is slow (i.e. when lots of people are using it, which is pretty well all the time), it takes 30-40 seconds to load all those little images, which means I have to wait 30-40 seconds after clicking "Reply" before I can actually start typing - annoying!

Should be taken care of with the upgrade happening over the next couple of days, according to Wingnut.

Yes that's been a problem for a while, ie all the emoticons load in the background and slow down the page loading. It was top of the list of fixes for the new version, which we just finished the beta testing. Now Jim at Ultra is just tidying up loose ends and the small bugs that we discovered during the testing. So it shouldn't be too long before the upgrade.

Using the Quick Reply at the bottom of the thread seems to be a decent work-around until the upgrade. But you won't be able to insert emoticons.
