Ok ... so where are the instructions on how to use this new upgrade?
Check this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=246427
I don't know where instructions are, but what aspect do you want to know? I just click on all the multiquote images () that I want to respond to such that they turn red () and then click on Post Reply at the bottom of the page (). Works for me.
mad jew to the rescue ... ThankYou Sir!
But if you select the posts you want to quote but don't end up replying for one reason or another, those selected posts will still be quoted in the next thread you reply to, as I've just discovered... unless you uncheck the alert at the bottom of the reply box.
Really? Would that mean that you could quote someone from an entirely different thread? Talk about taking someone out of context.
Yeah, I've been meaning to ask if there's a reset function somewhere... It could come in handy.
I just post a reply to one at a time and let the mods clean up my mess. I look it as job security for them.
Let's just hope it doesn't get overused. I love multi quotes in a single post, but only if they're relevant to what's actually being said in the post.
First day notwithstanding...
great feature, this wil stop the newbies (and some veterans) from filling pages with quotes.
*grabs something solid, but can't hold it while laughing uncontrollably*
And notice this nice little feature of vB3.6: In the quote box (next to "Originall posted by:...." is this icon:
Click it and you get taken to the relevant post
I don't think the feature will necessarily get misused. If anything, it will help the Mods in that they will not haver to (in theory) perform as many post merges. And for spammers like myself and mad jew, we now have less of an excuse to post multiple times, since it's so easy to reply to multiple posts in a single thread. I think our posts/per day will definitely start to drop... .... BWAAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!! Yeah I almost said it with a straight face....
I agree, hopefully this feature will allow us to police our own posts better than before.
And no, I seriously doubt that post counts will drop.
That's way cool...thanks guys
You can also just click on the button in any of the posts you've selected.
Sadly, the "Merge" and "Delete" buttons are so close together, I often click the wrong one.
There's also a new throttling feature - we set a posts-per-day limit on individual members, and, if they exceed that, older posts (possibly from years ago) get deleted so as to limit their effective posting rate. Very nice, actually.j/k
I didn't know that, thanks. I tried using one of the Quote buttons in a different post but that didn't work.
quick question, is there a way to not allow images in quotes? that would be very useful.
you can always just delete the image tags when you quote someone.
If the person you're quoting used the
Yeah, I just upload them as attachments directly. There may be an efficient way to do it using Manage Attachments, but I haven't explored that very much.
I meant the using the inline 'attach' tags - seems like you need to upload the image(s), determine the URL so as to get the attachment ID, and then manually type it in with tags (otherwise the images all appear below the post). Am I (not surprisingly) missing something?
