Slight Change in Posting Replies to Threads - Ron Ramirez - 05-11-2012 09:27 PM
I have decided to make a change to how users may reply to threads. This has been on my mind ever since the switch to the new MyBB-powered Phorum, and I decided to make the change today.
This affects the quotes you often see in posts. You know, the ones like:
somebody Wrote:bla blaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa
When it is necessary and relevant to the discussion, I don't mind it. But repeated quotations make what could be a short reply into an unnecessarily long one, like this:
Elmer Wrote:Bugs Wrote:Duck season!Enough! Enough!
It did not help that the "reply" button at the end of every post automatically quoted the post above it.
I have therefore removed the "reply" and "reply with quotes" buttons.
So how am I supposed to reply to a thread now?
Simple - just look at the graphic below.
Either click the "New Reply" button at the end of a thread, or enter your reply in the "Quick Reply" box at the end of a thread. (See the thread "How to Post to the Phorum" in the "Phorum 101" section of the Phorum for details.)
If you want to quote someone in a reply:
Use the "quote" code as follows:
Notice how you place the word quote inside brackets to make a quotation. To end it, you type /quote (a forward slash, then the word quote); again, inside brackets.
However, I ask all of you to please use quotes sparingly, to make posts easier to read.

"Would you like to shoot me now or wait till you get home?"
"Shoot him now, shoot him now"
Would you like to shoot him now or wait till you you get home"
"Shoot Me now, shoot me now"
"Let's try that again."
