This Forum – message reply/quoting

The procedure on this forum for replying to a post and quoting previous responder has to be one of the naffest, most archaic procedures I have EVER come across.
How so? Only takes about 5 seconds and you don’t end up with miles & miles of nested quotes like you do on some sites…..
EDIT – the procedure for posting in the correct forum is also pretty simple…… 😉Posted 6 years agoyunkiMember

has to be one of the naffest, most archaic procedures I have EVER come acrossis too difficult for me and I don’t like it and I’m not doing it and I’ve got a note from my mum and everything so there!!.
Don’t complain – you’ll have all the fanbois jumping out saying how much better this forum is than anywhere else and that things like this are either things you have to put up with to get that, or even that they’re what make it so great.

I agree it is ‘usable’ but to have to copy paste the message you’re replying to and insert the quote tags is a pain.. It also makes following a conversation with more than one previous quote almost impossible to follow without faffing around splitting the posts up, inserting the users name etc etc
It’s plainly obvious when you compare it to just about every other forum our there that it leaves a lot to be desired.
Edit: Nested quotes is a good thing in my opinion. At least people can see who you are replying to and why.Posted 6 years agorootes1Member
I prefer the old fashioned forums, where you’d write something down on a piece of paper, scan it, then upload it to the page.
Quoting folk involved printing out their post, drawing a big box around it, scanning and uploading it.
It was all much more authentic.
Perhaps we should move to Monochrome BBS!
