quick reply.
    #1952653 - 09/25/03 11:43 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

it's no quicker than a normal reply, and leads to confusion when people don't know how to reply to whom they mean to reply to.

down with quick reply!

how may people actually brows the forum in threaded mode?

I would, as its how things are supposed to be, but no one else does or seems to care about how a thread is supposed to be formed so browsing in threaded mode ended up reading like garbage with replys to people they didnt mean to replay to and all. The quick replay should be used to reply directly to the thread starter, not one of the children.

Quick Reply is the bane of my existence. It makes a mockery of the context of the sub-threads, and creates much confusion and many fights.

"Down with Quick Reply," I say! Down with it!" May its carbonized bones roast in hell. I say we gather together some torches, and get a mob of excitable towns people together, and go hunt it down where it lives -- in it's nest -- in the great castle beyond the moors! :mad2:

Follow me, people! :laugh:

Quick reply sucks!

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Quick reply is actually quite versatile -- it not only sucks, but it also blows! :grin:

I posted some code, but matts didn't want to use it.  Should still be in the search... it is javascript that requires a person to click on the quick_reply link to set which post to respond to.  If they did a quick reply and hit continue without clicking a quick_reply link first, a popout comes up telling them the error.  They do not loose their post.  They can click the quick_reply link they are wanting to respond to, click continue, and away they go.  I miss threaded view...  :frown:

I wasn't aware you had done so.

There is no excuse for quick reply in it's current form.

It was a bad idea when implemented, it's a completely fucking bad idea now that there is an option.

Quick reply doesn't just suck, it FUCKING SUCKS!

I only quick reply, and think it's really conveniant.
Id like an option(i.e radio button) to acompany the quick reply though:
If I post I want to get infos on replies. It would be great if I could choose to get them , without having to go back and press "favourite thread!(toggle)"
