    What I've been doing is simply clicking the "Quote" link on each post I want to quote separately, but this will be easier.

    Well yeah you can but I find this to be easier and quicker. The method without involves copying the quote, updating to quote the next post, so forth and so on. So if you tried to quote four posts, you'd have to quote and copy the first, quote the second, paste the first quote, copy both quotes. Quote the third and paste the first two, then copy all three. And lastly, quote the forth and paste the first three.

    You shouldn’t have to be copy pasting! You can just hit quote on each post you want to quote and it will all get added to the reply box!

    I actually didn't realize that just hitting the quote button would work but the +Quote button does work across forums/threads whereas the Quote button is thread-specific. It's wiped when you change threads.

    Yes, that's true...it works like the inline moderation features in that regard. This is what it looks like on a new forum I admin:

    I can only math when I'm getting paid. Honestly though I'm not that bad at math. It's when it gets complicated like that it goes over my head. There's a reason I prefer to manipulate cards and minds than numbers and variables. There is a certain amount of math to what I do, though. There's several card tricks out there that are simply self-working math equations.

    You can highlight each person's quote and press quote. The quote will go in your post box. :) I'm pretty sure this has already been said but I don't feel like reading the entire thread, lol. :rofl:

    I was wondering why you guys didn't have a multi quote button, and it had been annoying to manually copy and paste to multiquote. I guess I was right about random people being able to read my thoughts. I'm scared now.

    You should be scared anyways. I'm a hypnotist there's s certain degree of mind fiddling to start with.
