    It's a multiple-quotes-in-a-reply-thingy. If there are a couple of posts in a thread you want to quote in your reply, click on the button in each of the posts in question. All the ones that you select will then be quoted once you click 'reply'.

    I'm not sure if you're pointing that out or asking about it, but on the off chance that it's the latter, it's a link to the quoted post.

    What I don't like is that after the first post there appears some promotional ads.

    EDIT: now I see thats only when you are offline.

    And the new "Reason for Editing" is cool

    I thought we've always had the join date?.... Maybe it's some other forum I visit. That multiple quote thing is nifty. I used to just open them in new tabs and then copy and paste.

    No the join date is recent. IMHO it doesnt really mean much as you dont need to know how long they have been on the site if they have contributed a lot.

    Yay! Features that I've been wanting from my experience with IPB (Invision Power Board).

    Yeah, I was going to say the same. I've seen it before.
