No More Quote Trains?

Question

Flashify

I wanted to quote a person who had quoted someone previous, but it only quotes the most recent reply. I know there's the multi-quote feature but that just adds all the quotes in seperately, not in the boxes.

 

Just something I noticed and only thing wrong with the new forum. Any ideas?

I think it is actually a good thing since it will stop the completely unnecessary quote trains. The problem is that people tend to click on the quote button instead of the reply button if the reply button is only available at the top and/or at the bottom of a page.

I'm finding it difficult to tell when quotes end and response begins.

I think there's a minor shading (background) difference, but I'm not sure.

 

I've seen at least one post with a double quote... totally unable to tell which was what.

I'm liking the multi-quote feature. Helps a lot.

The Quote System has changed so that you can only quote one post at a time, this has though messed up older posts where there were quote trains, in fact its so messed up, you cannot tell what is what (as lilweasel said). Remember though, admins aren't completely finished developing the forum so they may or may not fix the issue :^:

My only problem is it's confusing for a viewer to understand the conversation because if you quote a post that has quoted a previous post, only the post you are clicking quote on will be included in your reply, not the one that they had originally quoted as well. It just makes it a bit awkward if the viewer is trying to search through posts to see what the first part of the conversation was.

 

Sorry if thats confusing.

I understand what you mean. For now, you best just be patient, the administrators of the forums are trying their hardest to give us all a better experience :^:

I'm just going to stick to quoting the old fashioned way (making use of quotation marks), from now on.
