For those who have not seen it yet, there is a new option to quote a post in your response.

You will find it at the bottom right hand side of a post.

Once you click the quote button simply add your content below the code that appears and your post will look like this one.

Love the new feature….
Wanted to test whether a “quoted post” can be edited, to make it shorter or more to the point!!!
Hope it works….

Much better. When it first showed up as just some text in quotes I wasn’t too impressed or thrilled about it, but this looks much better. It’s way easier to differentiate from the comment below.

CL810,
You can directly quote a question within a post, so as to answer a specific question. That or to add insight to a previously posted comment.

So they don’t nest, but that’s probably a good thing. Also good to know that I can edit the quoted text as well. Don’t always need all of what was quoted :-)

I’m quoting myself to make me look important. See everything right here? It’s very important.

Fun.

How am I going to intentionally misquote people now?
