The end of nested quotes

Post by MegaMav »

BowlingChat,

I made the decision to stop nested quotes.
I have a limitation to single quotes in place along with a code change to automatically modify new posts at submit time to the outermost quote if you try to submit a nested quote.

So, you can have nested posts in your posting/edit window, and as you press submit, the forum will automatically remove the inner most nested quotes.
To me, the nested quotes were a waste of screen space and forum resources.

agree. as long as there is a way to reference a specific previous post then it will accomplish the intention of the poster.

Agreed, in general I prefer to copy the section of a post I want to refer to and use the quote radio button to identify it. -- JohnP

An idea who's time has come.
Thanks for the heads up.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life
contribute in some way to that happiness
and to that freedom for all.

John
