When you're reading a topic, one of the buttons you'll see at the bottom of each post in that topic is "Reply." This really means, "Quote." If you click that, you'll be taken to an editor window with a quote of that entire post. You can then add whatever you want to say and post that as a post. There are times when this is appropriate. But one of the ways this is NOT appropriate is to click Reply and then 1) add nothing and simply post that or 2) when you're replying to the immediately preceding post, there's no need to quote the entire post-- parts of it, maybe, but not the entire thing; it just clutters the page and makes you look like a noob.

To simply post a reply without quoting (which should be most of the time), scroll down a bit and use the Fast Reply box or click the "Add Reply" button just above it.

ya, what he said i don't see how this can be confusing (note sarcasim)

all joking aside now, hes right you are cluttering the posts and wasting valuable resources ( i know the samurai thinks webspace when seeing that, but i really meant drinking time(ok, one more joke))

Multiquote: you can check the box beside more than one post while viewing a topic and then hit multiquote to quote multiple posts. I haven't used it yet. Try it out and see how it looks. If it doesn't turn out right, you can always edit your post. :)

Also, if you select one of the little circles above multiquote (vote post up or down), you get a message that action failed:You have reached your quota of positive (negative) posts for the day, which is obviously zero in both cases

I don't think I have that turned on yet or it's misconfigured. It's on my list of "Stuff to Figger Oot."

Gonna try to get more emotes added tonight, too.
