If you want to quote another member you can:
1.Hit the button that says
under the post you wish to copy to your own. This is the best because you can hit the little white arrow [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2838907#post2838907"][/ame] in the newly quoted post and it will take you back to the original quote.
2.Copy the post-paste the text into the new post box. Highlight the text you want wrapped in quotes and hit the little quote tag icon and it will automagically wrap your text.
3. If you break a quote for some reason, you can manually fix it.Hit edit on your post then
make sure the quote begins with [quote] and ends with [/ quote]
(removing space between / and quote)
4. If you want to quote multiple posts just click the multi quote button
on every post you want quoted (the button will turn red) and it will line all of them up in your next post.
The reason this is so important is if you just copy and paste what they say, it will appear as though you said it when quoted and then when people break quotes on top of that it gets very confusing. The end result is quotes from people that did not say what it says they said LOL.
I would hate any of the NG's to be quoted as saying they think BC is G and vice versa.
Hope that helps.

Quote tags, people, quote tags!!
If you delete a quote tag, or even part of one, you break the quote. We end up with a big mess where it's nearly impossible to discern who said what.
Quotes must be enclosed between tags like this ("E" is purposely omitted here):
[QUOT] He said, she said...yada, yada [/QUOT]
Lower case or upper case is fine as long as the word "quote" is between two brackets, and the end tag includes a "/" before the word "quote".
Please do not "quote" a post which contains a broken "quote".__________________________________
