Quote Button

Could there be a "Quote" button added here on the forums? Thanks.

It's the button. Just copy/paste what you want to quote, highlight it and hit that button. If you want to add their name put ="their name" between the E & ] of the first [QUOTE].

It is much easier to quote when there was a button on every post like many other VB forums.

Example:

Yup. So easy that most folks will simply quote an entire post, just to remark on one and only one small item of the quoted post.

I was simply commented (stating an empirical fact) on this because somebody else raised it. You are very correct that it can be quite annoying when people quote entire posts unnecessarily (especially those with lots of large pics)

Hahaha, I've been wondering about that! I thought I couldn't because of minimum post requirements or something. Good to know.
