Default OT: Vbulletin ? for TJ

Hey Taco,
I just noticed that quotes within quotes were enabled in the PM's. Is there a reason that this feature is not the default within the forums?

I know one could do it manually if tagged properly but that's a PITA. It may look a little more cluttered but would help keep some conversations in context.

Just curious....Sorry if this has already been asked and answered.

I'm not sure why they don't do that as a default in the forums. I'll take a look to see if there is a setting for it. Seems like it could get unwieldy to me...

Cool.

If it is a simple settings change....It might be better to wait until we go back to off-season mode for a trial run. (In February, of course. )

Just don't set it as the automatic default. I CAN'T STAND IT on other forums when people quote posts, and the new post with the intended quote automatically include other quotes from the quoted post. A few quoted-posts later, and it gets absolutely absurd how it looks with 7, 8, 9 nested quotes, post after post after post.

If possible, make nested quotes an option, but not an automatic feature. Just a request/warning!

I think it's the difference between a back and forth PM conversation (between two people) and a thread where you can quote one person, but it isn't a back and forther between only two people.

When you have more than two people (a thread, vs. a PM), then it doesn't lend itself to the quotes within quotes that you get with the PMs.

yeah, I don't think this is an option for the main forum. I think it's only available for one-on-one communication through the PM system. I don't see any setting that would enable this.
