    Forum Quote Facility Abuse


    Recently we have had a number of threads that have had the quotes system used excessively which is beginning to dilute the contents of threads. Whilst using quotes in some cases can be useful to get your point across, it can be counter productive as it can fragment the thread. Rather than imposing a blanked ban on this can everybody give some thought to whether the use of quotes is absolutely necessary to get your point across. This will also put less load on the forum which will make it run faster.

    As a guideline;

    1) If it is the post directly above yours, dont quote it

    2) If the quote contains images - remove them first

    3) If the post you are quoting is very long and you are only answering one part of it please edit the quote so that only the part you are responding to is relevant.


    This is actually something I've almost mentioned before in the past. Good move.

      I wish someone would tell the mods at Autocar magazine's forum.
      The problem is endemic there. Someone will quote and reply, then someone will quote all that and reply, and so it goes on.
