Just a little reminder--when quoting someone in the forums, you do not have to keep the entire quote with your reply. You can, and often should (when the piece you are quoting is exceptionally long) only use the section you are agreeing with or an example sect. As long as you keep the ( quote and name within brackets ) at the beginning and end of that person's words, the quote will still work and you can delete all the extra stuff.
Or just say, hey soandso, that explanation helped me, thanks!
And...one last thing, if you're the first person to respond to a thread, no need to quote the question. Juast respond. It's obvious what you're answering.

Great plan! Threads take many pages sometimes because of quoting the same passage over and over again...
Especially when they contain pictures that take time to load.
It's not a plan, really, just stating what should be bleeding obvious! I've suggested that forum posts should be limited in length, which would force people to think before they quote great chunks. I'm not suggesting anything drastic - maybe 400 or 500 words.

People frequently quote unnecessarily on forums in my opinion. It is particularly pointless when you are the first to comment on the original message.
