    And hopefully this will help others or anyone. Bolding, italics and other ways of "quoting" really aren't quoting members, not by the way it's designed anyway. I come in and see a 10 page thread, but when I read one reply, for example, I have no clue at all who wrote what in that particular reply. It just looks like bold and regular writing and it's a pain in the ass to try and figure out who wrote what. I think just hitting the quote button in general most folks know how to do. But then when wanting to reply to multiple people at once, some aren't sure how. That's the "multiquoting". I have a video at the bottom that helps, or so I hope.

    I agree, Jim. Over the course of a couple posts, not using the 'quote' function makes it very difficult to go back and see exactly what each poster originally said. It tends to make me think the person using their own way of quoting are being less than truthful.

    Well, the person this was intended for hasn't even opened this thread, even though I sent a notification. Anyone is free to post as they wish, but they shouldn't be surprised if others don't want to "work" to read their crap, and they get less responses.

    I'm having a bad memory right now of Chesswars now!
