Quotes will now include the name of the member




One of the requests that was made earlier this month was that the member name appeared when you quoted their post. I have made the change, but it is going to only work from this point forward. In other words, new posts with quotes will show the quoted members name, but posts made before the change will not. I know this isn't the perfect solution, but its something.

Here's an example where I've quoted myself. If this works, you should see the name at the bottom of the original post I quoted. If this explanation is confusing, it should be become more clear as the change goes into effect.

Hopefully this will make the quote attribution more clear. Even though now I am just quoting myself!

I really like that. Kudos to the person who suggested it and to Will for making it happen.
I do have one question though. Will mobile users get emoticons back? I miss them.

Did Hoi put you up to this? Haha. I do want to bring the emoticons back for mobile. I need to work out where to put them on the much smaller screen.

Cheers,

LOL. Nope, but I am glad to know they are actually gone. I thought maybe I was overlooking them somehow. Thanks Will! (This is where you would get a thumbs up and a dancin 'naner! )

We need a horsey emoticon, and a boat, and a pony for Christmas too!

You mean like this???? haha

I’ll add to the chorus, I really like this way of handling quotes. So much cleaner and crisper to read the threads now.

I'm glad to hear that the update is working. I wish I had done this originally and really like the change. Thanks again for the suggestion.
