Off course, it'd get trickier if you'd like to not quote the whole post.

Actually that exists - it's called erm, threaded mode? idk, but right now every forum is in 'flat' mode. vB also supports a parent/child post mode, where posts in response to one post appear underneath that post as responses to that post. I doubt our style can handle that though. this kinda stuff.
The problem with threaded mode is that unless it's been fixed since the last time I used it, it's terrible with large threads. We have a ton of those. Also, if it quoted the whole post when you did [quote=postid], it'd make it impossible to do bit-by-bit replies, which seem to be popular on this forum

Anyway, since everyone seems to support the idea of this hack, I've installed it. Quotes will be nested up to three layers deep in replies. Let me know if there are any problems.

anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious

I didn't notice I structured the quotes in reverse order when I made my previous example. I'd just clicked the wrap quote button and added text after each [ QUOTE ] instead of typing up the example and then wrapping quotes.

So say you got into a discussion where someone started either addressing multiple posts in one or addressing the same one in separate segments. When you quote that, you might lose some important context on the different parts. With nested quotes, you'd be able to have that context right there to keep or remove if you want. For example:

Dave wrote:
Carol wrote: I like cats and dogs. Cats are quiet and fit on your lap nicely.
I had a cat that just wouldn't shut up. He'd wake me up at 4 in the morning every day to go outside. He liked sleeping on my lap though.

Carol wrote: I like dogs because they're easier to teach tricks. You can also walk them in the park.
Technically you can walk cats too but I wouldn't recommend it. You can clicker train just about anything if you know how to go about it.
If Carol were to quote Dave to reply, quoting her post would look like this:

My old cat was like that too, but only because I used to get up in the middle of the night for a drink of water.

Cool. Do you know where I could get a clicker to try it out?
If Carol found the nested quotes excessive, she could just remove them manually and end up with:

Does that look decent to you?

Same as you, I think. I've been here a lot...
You must have a lot going on your mind, I suppose.
Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.
