Hey krebs, you should be able to delete your posts using the fast menu right above them. Right next to the ''Edit post''. Maybe I don't know what you mean.

That is only possible if your post is the most recent one in the thread.

See here: http://i.imgur.com/I3elvb0.png


Didn't know that, it's very odd. Thanks. In any case you can tell me what posts of yours to delete, krebs, if you want, while someone sees if it's possible to change that.

The problem was reported to the dev team. I hope they fix it as much as you.

Hi Andrew,

Embedded quotes. Any chance you can change the quote function so it only includes the post the user quotes and not anything quoted in that post? Editing them is a massive pain and it seems many users really struggle with it.

Cheers,

I would vote against this: it is useful to have the context for a quote.

Frankly, hard to understand how people are unable to delete the inner envelopes of citation if they want to do so. Even if they don't, the reader can easily enough concentrate on the outer levels of the wrapper if they are confident that they don't need any more clarification of the previous discussion.

I think it either needs to be updated or removed. I'm constantly seeing posts with a multitude of quotes incorrectly wrapped, many to the point where it is hard to distinguish what is the quoted text and what is the response. It's incredibly frustrating.

It's the automatic quoting quotes together with the 5 quotes per post that makes it a mess. It means that people are forced to manually delete some of the quotes when the automatic quote has too many quotes in it. Some people then only delete some of one of the quotes, but in a way that messes with the rest. I believe it is not optimal the way it is now.

In the old forum you could still have quotes within quotes, but you had to add them manually, though the multi-quote option made it easy to just have a list of quotes after each other instead of within themselves.

Fully agree.

Also, wanted to ask this a long time ago, but what happened to all the signatures?

They are still around. See mine for example. Some probably just haven't changed it back in their settings since the forum change.

Can the data limit for avatars be raised, please? It is now 6kb, and when I take a picture, crop it and then resize down to the 80x80, it is 15kb. So something like 30kb should be a great improvement.

In case anyone is interested in what picture I'm talking about:

6kb is ridiculously small. You can't make out any details.
