Default How to Use the Quote Feature

In many threads it becomes difficult after a point to tell who is speaking to whom. There is a tool to help with this problem! Notice, when you reply to someone, that there is a button to the bottom and right of the text that you wish to reply to. Let me demonstrate. . .

There. When you press the button, it puts the entire block of text in between a pair of tags that, once posted, cause the text to be drawn up in a tidy box!

You can also edit down the contents of the quoted text so that it takes up less room, or gets to the point. When doing this, it is polite to use ". . ." to indicate that a part of the text has been left out.

"I'm lost. Can't we just use " and "?"

Sure, you can just type in quotes if you want to. But the option to quote just by pushing a button is there as well.

(The real confusion arises when someone just types in a reply to something posted five posts earlier without any sort of quote.)

"I don't see where smilies come from."

When you start to type your reply, look just to the right of the typing field. If you have smilies enabled, you will see a collection of silly little faces like this: . Click on one to add it. Viola!
