In message threads where various people are commenting this can be a useful way of making it obvious to whom you are replying and can cause less confusion.Mike wrote: Just a quick note to say how we are going to manage this forum. If you have a problem with the forum software please let us know by posting a new topic. Once a topic has been dealt with we will leave it on line for a couple of weeks before deleting the thread. This is just a bit of housekeeping to make sure we are not keeping redundant data.
If you look along the right-hand top edge of a posted message you'll see a row of icons that include:
EDIT x ! ! ? QUOTE
These give you the opportunity to edit or delete what you've just posted (within a short timeframe). Clicking the QUOTE icon at the top of someone's posted message allows you to quote all or part of it within your new message.
Try it and you'll see what I mean.
