Please refine quotes

Discuss the latest LMMS news with other forum members.
May i ask everyone to Please refine your usage of quotes.
Sometimes i see whole pages quoted, even though only a tiny part is relevant for the response.
It only takes a few seconds to cut out the part(s) that is irrelevant, and the conversations get much cleaner and easier to follow afterwards.

Thank you in advance!
Maybe we need to explain a bit about quoting, and how it works on all or most forums ?

When you click the quote button, the forum software will place one piece in front of the selected text and one part after the selected text.
It will look like this:

Code: Select all

So if you want to remove text and or quotes, deleted the text including the

Code: Select all

[quote] [/quote]
tags.

When you quote a text with quotes in it you will see multiple tags.

The difference between

Code: Select all

[quote="musikbear"] [/quote] 
and

Code: Select all

 [quote] [/quote] 

only is about if the username you quote is shown or not.

Hope this helps.
Yep. Glad to see this advice. :)
