    The new "quote thingies"

    Are pretty cool. It really draws the eye to the fact that someone is quoting someone elses' post. Maybe it's me, but I was sometimes unclear abou that in some posts under the old system.

    Re: The new "quote thingies"

    I was waiting to see how people liked it. It's one of those very small tweaks that end up making things much easier.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: The new "quote thingies"

    The quote graphic is pretty righteous, but maybe we could add a gold outline to them to keep with the color scheme for the rest of the site.

    Also, I realize that the quoted text now appears in italics, but the shading used previously really helped to separate the quote from the reply. I think a thin red or gold border would help further separate the quote from the body of the new message. But maybe that's overkill.

    Totally agree. Please add an outline or shading to distinguish where the quote ends more clearly. Maybe add an end quotations mark as well. I like it though.

    Re: The new "quote thingies"

    This should make it easier for people to cite my earlier posts and show I am right more often. Definitely will cut down on plagiarism on the site.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: The new "quote thingies"

    I like the red quote text, but I think you should leave the background color of the quote in a different color.

    Agree, the quotations look nice, but would like to have a different color behind the quoted text and what the new person is typed.

    Re: The new "quote thingies"

    I just updated it a little - let me know if you guys want further changes. Thanks again for the feedback.

    Can I agree just to agree because everyone seems to agree on this thread? Looks good.

    Didn't like it at first, but now I'm getting used to it so it is fine.

    I'm in the same boat, but would it be possible to make the box a little darker? It seems that the gray background is too light...
