    I've noticed that there have been a great many instances of people quoting LONG posts, sometimes with photos, and replying with a one-line [or even a one-word] answer.

    A pain to read and a waste of time.

    I'm a member of another forum that uses vBulletin and they have a convenient feature that perhaps you could look into...

    ...each post in a thread is sequentially numbered in the upper right-hand corner.

    To refer to a preceding post, I don't have to find it and cut/paste a quotation, or hit the "quote" button, I can just type something like "In post #26 you said..." and a short quote... those who wish to check on the context will find it easy to locate the quoted post.... and won't have to scroll through a ton of other posts to find the relevant one.

    ..and it might make it even easier for some people.... picture the following:

    " #18, +1."

    ;f ;f

    Thanks for a well-run board. I appreciate all the work involved.
