Please stop quoting previous posts
« on: March 09, 2017, 09:34:49 PM »
Guys, please do not quote a post if it is immediately above yours.
We have a wonderful forum thanks to you, the members. Let's now make it even more readable by stopping the quoting.

It is obvious that you reply to the post prior to yours. No need to quote it. Let's keep our discussions cleaner and non repetitive.

Avoid quoting in general, unless it is really useful. If you want to refer to a previous post it is better to just name the poster and then post your reply. For example "Kav, this is my reply to you" .

Too much quoting is bad use of reading space, database resources and forum layout. And it gets too repetitive.

Thanks for your understanding.

 In one of my first posts many years ago on another forum I did not quote the previous post.
Then the previous post mysteriouly vanished and disappeared.  >:(
What did it make me look like?
There are some crazy people and trolls out there.

I'm glad you're being stricter about this kav because it's one of my pet hates. If everyone did it for every post the bandwidth and resource usage would be doubled!

It is a problem, so why not remove the function?

It is miles sometimes, and I use to not read such a threads.  We can type who we answer if it is vague in the context.

The quote feature is a very powerful and important function of every forum.  Kav is only saying not to quote the entire previous post because it makes quote walls that are hard to read and require scrolling etc.  I just got done quoting a small portion of a post that was directly above mine which is OK!
