    It would be nice to have all the emotes that are dancing grouped for all the parties!

    Seconded... though not necessarily for dancing. More so for quickly chosing greetings (various salutes, etc.) for all the fresh faces we are now encountering. Perhaps with ubiquitous-yet-functional +/- drop down menues.

    Or you could think of them as tags or contexts, so say there could be overlapping categories

    This would be something that would really benefit the community building a custom UI for. Contextualising grouped/category would be no easy feat. Being able to drag drop moves into custom groupings would be great. Perhaps some default catagories that group via body part region (legs, arms head) or external interface types. (interact with ground, interact with objects). With such custom grouping potention and variation, drag drop and some radial interface would be optimal.

    I wouldnt even mind if the interface was able to be popped to almost fullscreen. Emotes selection would only be momentary. Bigger interface would let you have a well developed Radial in there plus other sections off to the side devoted to say "Parties" or other catagories like "Emotions" and "Taunts/Affection" etc etc.

    Yes! Maybe they could make an additional category (type of emote) in the emote window. Then we could sort by emote name or by emote type.
    Example emote types could be:
    • Dance - zombie, Mosh, chicken, etc.
    • Fitness/yoga - jumping jack, push up, balancing stick, tai chi, flex, etc.
    • Facial Expressions - eyeroll, smile, frown, etc.
    • Toss - all the emotes that toss leaves, flowers, etc
    • Breath - all breath emotes: breath fire, breath spiders, etc.
    • Juggle - all juggle emotes.
    • Magic - bird from hat, mouth coil, etc.
    • Music/Theater - sing, conduct, Mime emotes, etc.
    • Greet/Goodbye - wave, tip hat, etc.
    • Salute - darkstarr salute, love salute, etc.
    • Opinion/Sentiment - Cheer, clap, boo, smells bad, toast, yes, no, shake head, shake fist, laugh, belly laugh, etc.
    • Clean - rake, sweep, etc.
    • Puke/Vomit - all the puke emotes
    • Physical interaction- hug, spank, hold hands, flirt, face slap, kiss
    • Direct - come here, point, etc.
    • Read/Write - read book, write book,
