Enable; some situations need nested quotes.

I was demonstrating how much easier it would be to read peoples replies to other peoples replies. The way it currently is you don't know whats going on and you're left out of the loop hole.

So basically what your saying binaries, is that, it would make older non-active topics harder to follow, and therefore make it far less likely that someone is going to post to something that is 3 years old?

Sometimes a topic covers more than one quote, hence the need for nested quotes. Like if someone gave a two work response to some original comment, and you're giving a reply to both of those. It just helps keep things in order.

I think the optimal solution would be that the text in the nested quotes be in some way hidden for all except the latest quote, with the option to expand said text if the need arose. However I don't think it's an option in IPB, but maybe there is an addon?

There isn't an option for that. An addon would definitely be possible, but not likely to happen in our situation.

Situation? Is there a rock and a hard place?

Our situation is that nobody really wants to put in the amount of time required to make such an addon, or pay for an already existing one.

I voted no, but I think if you limit it to only quote the previous person, then that would be acceptable. I just don't want to scroll down about half a mile to find the next post.

Fucking hell nate, no! There would be an influx of TLDR; posts though :/, since when does this add on cost money?

A limit would work, but having no nested quotes just really sucks and makes things much harder to read. Nate's idea is also cool though paying for collapsing quotes would suck so.

If you want to see which post you are referring to, and what they quoted, use the Posted Image button. There is no need for nested quotes.

Sometimes you need a reminder. Especially with long topics.. it's easy to lose track of what exactly a person is referring to.. and agreed with phix. I think it's stupid to have to be sent all through a conversation to see what each successive post was referring to..

When making a post, scroll down if you're in the reply window or scroll up if you're in the fast reply. Problem solved.

I don't really see the problem here. It's not like nested quotes are something bad. No one complains on the old board either. If you don't like it, simply remove the quoted quotes?
