rachel and The Star Swordsman - Heheh. Thanks. You two are fine; it's a few other members around here who are...umm... "uncorking the wrong bottles", but I shall keep their names in the undisclosed section. ;)

FireFly - No problem. I'm just giving everyone a reminder. ;)

JesusFreak - Nah, I think you're fine. This message is basically for everyone in general, so don't feel as if you've been singled out. Heheh.

I'm just bringing this topic back up again as lately there's been a lot of 'questionable quoting'!

So please, if you're replying to something someone has just said, using Mitch's idea of putting their name in bold and then writing your message keeps the boards uncluttered. In particular, quoting within quotes is unnecessary and makes topics difficult to read, so please try not to 'over-quote'.

Thank you! :D

This has been cropping up again really, really, badly recently, and I wanted to bring this thread to everyone's attention again.

It's actually really annoying and confusing when this happens, you guys. Especially the whole "I'll quote the post directly above me" thing.

So, bumping this just to make everyone aware of it again. Hope it's not out of my place to do that. :lol:

I've been noticing it too. The worst thing: Quoting posts with lots of pictures in them. The least you can do is remove the IMG tags. It gets pretty annoying.

Thanks for the reminders to everyone, Bryko and little_chef. What I usually do is to quote a few lines, or the line just before the image only.

I brought this up a while back (as in, last week), and apparently no one re-read this. If it's out of my place to continue bringing this topic back up, mods feel free to correct me - but the quoting is getting very, very out of hand here.

If you want to respond to what a member's said, simply bold their name and respond to them that way, instead of quoting what they just posted. It keeps the boards from looking cluttered, and excessive quoting in this way really isn't necessary.

Example (I'll use mod's names here, so no one gets offended :P):

The wrong, cluttered, confusing way:

--

The Star Swordsman wrote:I'm going to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tonight. Should be interesting.


thedriveintheatre wrote:
The Star Swordsman wrote:I'm going to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tonight. Should be interesting.

Oh really? That should be a good time! Let us know what you think of it! :)


--

The right, more organized way:

The Star Swordsman wrote:I'm going to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World tonight. Should be interesting.


thedriveintheatre wrote:TSS - Oh really? That should be a good time! Let us know what you think of it! :)


--

It's very easy. :)

Hope that helped a few people out here. Personally this has gotten very irritating and feels a lot like the boards are being spammed. Again, if it's out of my place to bring this up and explain, by all means mods, correct me. :lol:

Emmm..... not really! I'm also getting a miffed by the wanton quoting trend, so I appreciate the reminder. I've posted a link to this thread in my sig.

Thanks... hopefully we're not the only ones noticing this problem, and people will start to get with the program. :)
