other forums I frequent have a "quick reply" at the bottom of any thread your viewing....it sure beats having to click on "post reply", go to a new screen, type your reply, then hit submit, and then get transfered back to the thread...


wouldn't it be easier to just type your response and then click "post reply"?....no re-directing, no new screens...all around faster and easier...

This has been discussed numerous times before, but it's always been refused. The thinking being that the longer, more complex process results in more thoughtful posts.

well that, and it makes sure that you want to post something instead of just firing off a quick one liner or whatever.

i can't imagine how fast threads and such would grow with the quick reply.
