PixarVixen - It's okay. It annoys me too, when people use quotes in quotes in quotes and stuff.

You know, I'm starting to see what you mean by constant quoting, PV. It's starting to tick me off, as well. Eheh.

Rachel: all I could think of when you said "I can change!" is "I can change, I can change!" from the South Park movie. :lol:

Okaaaaay. Too many members are quoting preceding posts and I just...don't...understand...why. I'm on a mission to wean those of you off the habit. :P

I have only quoted posts two times, I think. But I see it too. There are way too many people doing this.... I don't understand either ....

Well, obviously quoting is allowed. Heck, it's a post option. But what I just did at the beginning of this post is an example of unnecessary quoting.

Just kidding. :wink:

Well, one way to stop the unnecessary quoting is to remove the Quote button on everyone's posts. That way, it's more of a burden to quote someone, and Pixarplanetarians won't do it as often.

Well, I'm the type of person you would rather err on the side of caution just in case someone is confused about whose post I am referring to, and which quote what I am referring to - especially if it is a busy thread with lots of different opinions flying around.

I don't like it when people quote a whole long section, when they should have just edited it down to a sentences or two (the part the are referring to). But everything else doesn't bother me too much. But I'll try to take that advice on board, PV. I think it was me your were talking about.

Oh no, I know quoting is allowed. The unnecessary quoting is what I'm having trouble with. I... I... just... don't understand why members do that. Period.

Notice:

Hello everyone,

I just thought that I should remind both old and new members of the issue of unnecessary quoting, since I've noticed alot of that going on lately:

-------

When possible, please refrain from quoting an entire post, as it is often unnecessary and clutters up the boards (unless you are only quoting a section of the original post). If the original members' post is directly above yours -- or even three posts directly above your reply -- then there is no need to quote that person's entire post. A more simplistic way to reply to someone is by stating their name in bold right before your reply, so as to emphasize exactly who you wish to talk to. For example:

*member's name* - You put the marshmellows in the freezer? That's awesome! What was the result...?

This system is a bit more effective and helps to keep the forum boards, as a whole, less cluttered.

-------

Just letting you know. Thanks, guys! ;)
