"Quote" question

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    How do you copy other people’s posts into that box thingy in order to respond with your own comment?

    Well yes - but please try to only 'quote' the relevant part of the ARRSEr whom you are quoting, and therefore responding to. Too many threads become unreadable (and therefore pointless) when dullards simply quote and endlessly re-quote vast tracts of text.

    Cheers. :D
  4. Alternatively, just cut-and-paste the small section of text you wish to quote and then type...
    to finish it.

    I find this easier, especially with larger posts.

  5. Also try to avoid re-quoting or 'nested quoting' it is incredibly annoying.



    P.S. Also make good use of the 'Preview' button, it will save embarrassing occurances of posts like this :-

    Good drills BFG - it's good to see someone else knows how to use '...' - I thought I was one of the few! :D
