I'm not a fan of this new feature of quoting and re-quoting the OP's question or comments over and over and over again. It's annoying to scroll through, and is a waste of time and space on the screen.
Therefore, I'm all in favor of the new "import and edit" the quote. My preference to edit the quote, is to delete it altogether. But this is not 'taking.' Every. Single. Time: The program ignores the deletion, and posts the entire quote anyway.
Is this a glitch? Is there a fix for this?
Instead of pressing Reply directly under the message, use the black Reply button bottom right. The first includes the quote, the second doesn't, and posts your single comment to the whole thread.
I prefer to use Chronological view, so that I can see exactly who I'm replying to. I don't worry about repeating the message unless the original post is spam, very long, or is an image.
By the way, it isn't a new feature. It's been this way since I've been on the forum.
It's new to me, and I've been on HP for 8 years, now.
I'll try it the other way, though; thanks for that.
Lizzy, You recently changed your forums to chronological view because you were missing things in threaded view. That’s why you are seeing it that way now.
Many people miss things in threaded view, which is why we had that discussion some time ago. You saw that discussion and switched your view.
I’ve noticed, at times, people asking questions I already answered in various forums and it’s always because they were in threaded view and didn’t see my specific response to another individual becasue it’s stuck farther up.
Chronological view would have all posts displayed in the order they were entered, which makes it easier to follow an entire conversation without missing replies to individuals.

Please.Personally I think its removal slows down the forum activity of the more experienced users.I like to quote people though remove parts of the quoted text that I'm not specifically referring to. Apparently a lot of others do it that way too.If there's any chance of that making a return it...

With some users using the threaded view and others using chrono some threads are becoming intelligible Ex)http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/34590#post769233You'll see in chrono view that one hubber responds in a conversational manner 3 posts in a row-in that view it makes no sense ..(As Misha points...

I would suggest dropping the “Threaded view” since it confuses people. I've noticed that those who use it tend to overlook important parts of a conversation in a thread. If only "Chronological View" were used, this would not only simplify things, but everyone involved would be in sync...

I saw a couple hubbers saying to others that they had only X amount of posts in the forums. Is there a quick way for me to see how many I have posted or do I just have to add them up? Are only forum moderators allowed to see this? Thanks for your answers.

After much suffering with the new forums format, and observing and analyzing, I came to the conclusion that it is possible to have my cake and eat it, too - if HP developers will cooperate.The problem: Replies made in threaded view look absolutely unconnected in chronological view, up to the point...
