Please change the "quoting" of posts format.

 

 

Responding to one person brings every quote that person responded to in his/her reply into a quote bracket. Whether it is of merit or not.

 

Nobody cares about that conversation, only the last post that was made and responded to. This is the only forum I have ever been a part of that uses such bracketing nonsense stacking replies.

 

 

You have to work through so many hoops to highlight the response you are responding to it almost becomes laughable. There is nothing 2A that makes it beneficial for this forum to be the only one using such. If it's not, I'd love a link to another forum utilizing the same posting practice.

When I want to quote only one reply, and not the whole "stack", I copy the text I want, and copy it between the following brackets, minus the $:

re board upgrade:

Progress continues, yes, it's very complicated.  Trying to clean somethings up beforehand so that we don't carry them over with the upgrade. I would hope to see the upgrade complete sometime this summer.


Perhaps with the board upgrade that is (slowly) in progress. Hopefully there will be an opportunity to beta test and provide constructive feedback for consideration if any customization is needed or willing to be considered. Would need to see what the new version brings,

Copy and paste what you want to quote.  Highlight it and click on the quote icon.

 

I don't understand why so many can't do that too.

I find that cleaning up what I'm quoting helps clarify my thoughts.

Have fun everyone, doubt I will be missed but this site's ancient ways got the best of me.

 

 

Tired of trying to quote someone's post and typing out a lengthy reply only to be told on submitting I have included too many posts. Hit the back button and lose everything.

 

Done with it and logging out for the final time.

When it complains I just use the old mouse, high light, and chop out the middle and hit post again....  

I sometimes wish I could just vi the darn thing but I say the same when I have to deal with sharepoint, thankfully not often. 

 

P.S. the link to the Invision (software) is wrong on the bottom, I just got nosey. 

Redhat 6 is end of life soon, that update should come too ;)

Most forums default to quoting only the post you're trying to quote.

Some offer 2 quote buttons... one to quote the single post, and one to quote all.

Very very few default to quoting everything.
