No way to reply to a specific post?

Recommended Posts

Either I've missed it completely, or it doesn't exist, but I can't see a way to reply to a specific post. I can only see a way to reply to the thread as a whole. If it doesn't exist, it's a serious omission, imo, especially since posts show no indication as to which post (or person) is being replied to unless it is quoted. I don't like that at all.

I hadn't used quoting on the old site, when I tried it on this one I was frustrated to learn that you have to type stuff FIRST before you paste the quote or it wouldn't let me type anything after I pasted the quote.  Seemed a bit backwards.

I see the forum as flat so any reply goes on the bottom.  Hitting the Quote is the only way I see to denote who you are commenting to.

Multiquote is fast and easy. :)

I'm imagining the confusion that will be generated in the GD sub-forum, which often has threads in which multiple discussions are occuring simultaneously. I can envisage fights breaking out right left and centre when people assume that a reply is meant for them when it was a reply to an earlier post :)

I'd thought of that before. It's another method, but still not as good as the real thing. I also received a notification that I'd been mentioned in a post but I didn't put 2 and 2 together when I saw the @Phil Deakins in your post Dante. It took a real brain like yours to join them up :)

So how do you insert the mention?

Click the "Quote" button or select the text then a "quote" button pops up. There's a third way but I tire..

Deletes apparently are not allowed.  Best I've seen is someone edit the post saying somethign along the lines of 'ETA - comments deleted'

But you only have 24 hours to do it.

I tried to delete my post just after few minutes since posting and I couldn't find any way to do it.
Is the delete thing hidden somewhere, or not available at all?

There is no way to delete a post. The best you can do is remove the content before the 24 hours is up, and replace it with something like, 'Just ignore and let this one die' :)

24 hours to edit a post?  I just edited a comment that I posted on Tue afternoon.
