Well of course! if i wanted to i could be mean but why bother hehe
PS: how do you quote anyways hehe i try but i cant
There are a few different ways.
1. Right above the post you will see a hyperlink that says Reply to This. Click on that. It will take you to the post message page. At the top of the screen you will see something that says Markup: Quote Original
. Click on that and it will pull the original post into your post. After you hit submit, it will display on the screen as follows:
Whatever they originally said
2. The next way depends on your internet browser. With IE, you can click the standard Reply button at the bottom of the page. It will bring up the usual screen. From here, you can see all of the other posts on the thread if you scroll down. Highlight something you want to quote, scroll back up to your blank post, hit the Quote button at the top of the page and out pops this:
Whatever you highlighted
Notice you do not get the person's name. If you want to add the person's name, or make up your own name for them, you have to manually type it after the [quote] action. So it would look like this in your blank post [ quote=Mearyk the complete and utter waste of space], but will appear like this
Mearyk the complete and utter waste of space wrote:
Yep, that's me
to everyone else. It helps to know at least basic HTML. Click on reply to this on my post and you will see how everything looks on a blank post. That is how I learned about a lot of the markup on this site.
Also, I said it depends on your browser because with Firefox, I cannot do this. I actually have to highlight the post, copy and then paste it in between the [quote] tag lines. Edited, Oct 26th 2006 at 8:01am PDT by Mearyk
