    Hi,

    I would like to go to the full post editing box when I click on "edit", now you will automaticly get to see a quick edit message box, can this be changed? ;)

    No, it can't. It's not a member by member configurable option.

    Can´t it be made so that you will at least get a choice (via dropdown menu) to choose between full and quick editing? And if this is not possible, can smilies be added to the quick edit box? :)

    All of that would be coding changes, and not very simple ones at that. The quick edit thing is all run as local javascript in your browser, and it controls (intercepts) the click on the "edit" button which creates that first edit window locally without contacting the forum again. It uses something called the AJAX editor interface, and it's a complex javascript application. I'm afraid you'll have to use two clicks instead of one to get to the full-edit window (i.e. clicking the "Go Advanced" button after first clicking the "edit" button.)
