Chris, can we get a [REPLY] button added back to the bottom of each post? I mentioned this several years ago (see quote below) and you responded, but somewhere along the way either the idea got lost in the shuffle or if there was a reply button, it went away in a vB upgrade. Right now, as far as I can tell, posters don't have the option to do a reply only unless they go to the end of a thread page.
I'm using the DBSTalk Blue style option.02-16-04
1. It seems there are an ever-increasing number of "reply with quote" posts which tend to clutter up a thread and irritate me no end. Many times I have seen a full quote immediately following the subject post, which is redundant and unnecessary. I believe the problem is the small "Reply" button at the bottom-right of each message frame which does not adequately identify its function.¹ It should read [Reply w/quote] or the like, in order to give the poster a clue as to what he is doing. Also, maybe move the regular "Reply" to the right, just below the 'reply w/quote' button, and rename it as [Reply, no quote]. This should be the default option anyway.
Great suggestions Nick.
1. Before making any changes to the buttons, I'm waiting for the final graphic set for VB3. Along with the gold release of the forum software will come a complete photoshop graphic set which will enable me to easily make changes. This will also keep them looking uniform. No release date has been set but when you see me announce that the forum software is now final, remind me to change the "reply" buttons.
