You all should know the quoting limitations as found in the TON Board Rules. To clarify the meaning for anybody who is confused, you should only quote the part that is relevent to your reply. Rule fo thumb: This should not be more than a line or two.

How do you edit the quote?

When you use the quote button, your reply is at the top of the page. If you scroll down, what you are quoting is in a seperate box further down. You have full access to edit or reduce what is quoted. This is especially important if the person you are quoting has quoted someone else.

How about quoting more than one person?

You can seperate and reply to more than one person by adding your own BCCode.

Code: Select all

Remember that people who are interested in the thread are following it, so your post does not need to be a summary. It is nice to quote to avoid confusion as to who you are replying to, or you can just type thier name to indicate.

Please help us all avoid confusion in the future. If you quote a mile long post and refer to only one line in it, I have no idea what you're talking about. :D
