Default How to Quote/Reply to multiple posts in one post

If there's more than one post you'd like to comment on in a thread, you can quote all of them in one reply. Posting consecutive replies on a thread (double posting or even triple posting) is not ideal as it makes a thread difficult to read and may even be considered post collecting.

Step One:

In the bottom right hand corner of posts there is a little "+" button. Click this on the posts you'd like to multi-quote in your reply. When you click on it, the little button will turn red and show a "-" sign.

Step Two:

When you've selected all the posts you'd like to quote (two or three is plenty - please don't quote hundreds!), click on the "QUOTE" button

This opens up the reply screen where you can put in your comments between the quotes (the [\QUOTE] bit of the code refers to the end of the quote so type on the line under that)

Step Three

Submit the reply as usual and the post will look like this:

A little plea

Multi-quotes are a useful way of not double posting and clogging up threads, but please use them in moderation and only when needed. You don't need to comment individually on every post someone makes on a thread! Make sure your replies are relevant to the topic and useful - unlike my replies in the example for this thread My example screenshots would not be a good reason to multi-quote and I've deleted my testing post from the actual live thread! Just a normal reply without quoting was sufficient in the real thread
