Also known as pyramide quoting. It might not be such a big issue here as I personally think it's easy to tell what and who you are quoting, but of course ..12-15 quotes in qoutes is hardly neat looking.


What to do to snip out those extra quotes?
There are really two ways. One is to copy the text you wanna quote straight from the post and then paste it into your reply. But of course, that won't make the quote tell who you're quoting.

So, what you probably should do is delete what you're not replying to after hitting quote.

It's not so hard once you try it. Leave the very first quote tag alone - and then the last one. Anything else; delete.
This is how it looks if you don't edit the "pyramide"

This is what you see when hitting the quote button;
Code:

[quote="Kai-Sun"][quote="Selven"][quote="azarhal"]

/makes like a unicorn and ....


wth does a unicorn do anyway? Oh Chaaaaarlie![/quote]

Hey chaaaaaarlieeeee, lets go have some funnn!

I wanna reply to Kai so I locate what he said between the last /quote tag and the one prior to that. In this case he starts with "Hey chaaaa..... Highlight the /quote tag above that and all the way up to the tag saying /quote Kai-Sun. Delete what you just highlighted and you're left with only Kai's quote.

lol It's harder to explain than it is to do Smile Pic says it all!

Just make sure you reply on the line below the last /quote tag.
