Dan,

Maybe I missed this before, but I am now noticing that the only response option for the last post in any thread is "REPLY." "QUOTE" is only available for the preceding posts. Is this new? Can it be corrected?

Another thought. Could the "Notify me" option be made a default in our individual profiles, so that we do not have to open the "Options" tab on each post and check a box (I often forget to do this).

Thanks.

The very last post shows reply instead of quote to subtlety discourage quoting en masse. The quote button for posts are available in the topic review section below the main edit pane if you want to excerpt portions of any post in the thread, including the last one.

As for the notify message, click Notify me upon replies by default in your profile.

Marshall reported the No Quote a while back... There's no need to quote the post above, except for 20th century types with dial-up :P :wink:

Yes, there is, mainly when you want to respond to two or three lines out of a 15-line post.

Me too! No quote for the last message is pretty annoying.

Bitch! Bitch! Bitch!
Well, if you observant types scroll down the edit page on your 640x480 monitors, you'll see a quote button on the last message :P

Greetings,

If I get a new monitor with better resolution will my clumping problems vanish? :D
