Nested quotations addicts

Postby Jo » Aug 30th, 2012, 8:47 am

This is an end-of-summer special deal. I've bumped the quotation level to two. This is a trial basis thing, so if I see nothing but posts with two quotations, then we'll go back to one.

That's good news Jo. It will be a huge time saver for many posters, and provide for more accurate and fully contextual reference when it is necessary to quote before posting. Two nests is fine in most cases I find, and no quote really necessary at all if the response immediately follows the post responded to. It will eliminate a lot of quote editing difficulties for many posters too, even on something like PM's where the current situation often makes the largest impact on having just a one on one private discussion that flows sensibly without a whole lot of time wasting quote editing just to reply to a PM.

It's hardly fair that you can PM people but they cannot PM you back to set you straight on a few things. :sillygrin:

LOL ;-) Patience is a virtue...

Had an occasion to make a post that involved 2 levels nested this morning. What a relief and timesaver!!! :-) But I have a question... can the forum settings available allow for that limit as to posts, but not limit the number to the same in PM's as well?

No, unfortunately that isn't an option, NAB.

BTW, there IS a small fee for the new feature. The invoice will come twice, one for each level.

LOL, you should run for political office Jo. Take away an OK service already bought and paid for, wait a while, then bring it partially back as a "new service" and double bill to pay for it at the same time ;-) Hey, come to think of it I've heard there is a very top level opening now in the BC Finance Ministry!

Well, here's the thing: Everybody has been abusing the two nested quotations thing. Endless threads of endless posts with an unnecessary two quotations in each. So. I fixed it.

I just wish posters would not quote the previous post that's 400 lines long!
