quoting when you're browsing with safari works fine on a MacBook but on an iPad (2) or iPhone (4) it doesn't work.

You are correct about the ipad2, I have just checked several models and ipad 3 and 4 allow you to quote.

Complicated with computers - a small difference in specs, especially with Apple ones can make a lot of difference. With the iPad 2 quoting is a total pain. I've just ordered the newest kind (worth it since I use all the time) and pleased to hear that it's different.

No chance on my smart phone or tablet.
There's no quote function in Chrome or Firefox on Android KitKat or Lollipop and wasn't on Jelly Bean when I last used that.

[edit] and still no quote support on Chrome on PC either.

I made an error earlier, I wasn't logged in to the site on Chrome. The quote function is working for me on Chrome (PC).

Mobile devices tend to be app driven, they are not good for general browsing.

Not working on Version 42.0.2311.135 m of Chrome.

That's the version I have on my machine, have you tried logging out and back in again?

Just did that.

[edit]It appears that logging out and in doesn't work.

I assume you are adding the quote manually because it is appearing on my screen.

do you see the @ postername iconwhen you highlight text

Nope, I highlight and then click the @ postername icon which appears when the post is clicked on.

That's how it should work.

Yes, that's how it worked last week (up until Friday). Now, however it doesn't. Although it does now work that way on Firebox for Android Lollipop.

That's how it should work.

I tried the F5 thing you suggested. It seems to have done the trick.

Everybody, try pressing F5.

That's how it should work.

The quote function on Chrome appears to have stopped working again. I have tried pressing F5. The quote function on Firefox still works fine.

It should continue working, nothing was changed (unless you try to quote the whole previous message then it won't include the quote now).. maybe try to open an Incognito window and login there and see if it helps.

Just to make sure we're all on the same page here, can admin kindly confirm that this new(-ish) rule also applies to quoting from sources other than PF? Yes.

Same with iPads, even the newer kind. Over the past couple of days it's been a bit hit and miss.

Just want to voice my opinion on this. This forum has way too many rules. They are childish really. We are all grown adults and there is no need to micromanage people about how they should post. If you don't like all of the quotes then don't read them, but they are useful.

And expecting people to stay on topic in threads is just stupid. Why do you care? Some of teh funniest stuff comes form threads going a bit off track and anyways they always come back to the track. What is behind the micromanaging of threads? I really don't get it.

I have been a mod and admin on forums before and all you are doing is making more work for yourselves and a headache for your posters and in the end you are just turning people off of your forum.

You would be better to use your time in getting rid of the trolls and monitoring the absolute ******** which put a very negative and dark shadow on your forum. It is the main reason that I do not take part very often.

Hard to know until you read them. Bringing back the ignore option would help. I've managed to filter out one member, whose obsession with a Slavic Commonwealth used to exasperate me, but some posters still get under the skin. Why no ignore button?

Why? If you don't like a member, don't read his or her posts. Simples.

It's hard to ignore posters who suggest the mass extermination of Muslims, or shooting migrants at borders. I feel it's a moral duty to challenge that kind of savagery. The ignore option saved a lot of pointless argument. Simple.

I feel it's a moral duty to challenge that kind of savagery.

How can you challenge these posters when you ignore them? That doesn't make sense. In my opinion, it shouldn't be the member (as an individual) that you oppose, but the content of his or her post. If you put someone on 'Ignore', you might miss perfectly fine and valuable contributions of that member. If you are really convinced that someone does not have valuable contributions at all though, you can simply ignore his her her posts by not reading them, as I said above.

What I mean is that one or two posters on here seem to be on a mission to spread hatred. I try to ignore them, but it's easy to get sucked into their nonsense. I should have more self-discipline, I know.

I know what you mean Roger because I feel the same myself.

I'm not 100% on this, but I don't think the ignore button worked too well anyway. As I understand it, if a person you wanted to ignore started a thread, you wouldn't see this if you had them on ignore, but you would see other members' responses to whatever that person quoted. Plus I think that if the ignored persons' posts were moved to the bin, then you would see them. It wasn't possible to ignore them from all parts of the forum. The mods might know more than me regarding this, but I don't think there were any plans to bring it back.

Merged:

Quoting people



I can't be the only one frustrated by this.

The quoting system is seriously messed up and it makes it very difficult to figure out who said what. I mean, it can be done, but it makes it a lot more work.

Yesterday I quoted Jon and Gumish in a post about Wiadomosci not being as popular these days, and now for some unexplained reason it has changed it has me as quoting delph, twice.

Of course it isn't just me, many other people are quoting people that didn't actually say the quote, through no fault of their own. The quoting system seems to have a mind of its own and attributed quotes to whoever it feels like.

Could this be fixed please?

I've noticed a few times that quotes I make disappear from the final post. Anyone else have this happen?

You are obviously laboring under the misapprehension that the mods/owners give a sh|t.

If you quote the whole of the final text, the quote will not appear. Sensible, really, since it isn't necessary. If someone jumps in quickly and therefore your post doesn't make sense without a quote, just edit it.
