The Quote Limit
    #3741542 - 02/06/05 06:40 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Sucks ass! I realize you guys are trying to crack down on those quote pyramids in OTD, but it's really hurting my posts in S&P and PAL. As someone who loves to debate, I find it irritating that when I'm trying to pick apart a long post by someone, I find that I've exceeded the quote limit. Then I have to go back through my post and delete some of the quotes, thus making it unclear what I'm replying to. Please change this policy. Thanks.

This is the maximum number of quotes. I disagree with it also, while those threads in OTD that locked up your browser were annoying, they had much more than 8 quotes. The limit should be at least double this.

why not just copy and paste, without using the quote option? seems like that would work just as well.

What's the point of a quote option if you need to copy and paste because you can't use enough quotes in a post? That defeats the whole point of having quotes, you might as well get rid of them in that case.

It may seem reasonable to you because you haven't tried debating someone and picking apart a post that's more than a couple paragraphs long.

>The quote limit sucks!

What really sucks is the people who were abusing it by placing 30, 50 or 100 quotes in their posts. Currently the limit is at 8 quotes per post, which is reasonable.

Exactly.

So how many quotes would be enough? And how many nested quotes?

Brainstorming... Could we make the limits forum based? Leave the default quote limit at eight and change both S&P and P&L to twenty or so?

In theory, yes. In reality I would prefer a unified limit that limits the abusers but doesn't limit the users.

For instance max 12 quotes total per post and max 3 quotes per nested quote.

I think the quote limit itself needs to be much higher, like 10-12 at least. Nested quotes don't need to be more than 4-5 IMO.
