That would be awesome.

I've always found it useful. I usually don't go past 3 quotes in the interest of space, but 2 is helpful for showing a short conversation. If more and more people post on the same topic, then they can just quote the part they're responding to, or just not quote at all.

For example (from the QQ thread):
PsiGuard wrote:

jhoijhoi: Dominion is too fun. QQ.
jeffy40hands: Dominion is fun.....

PsiGuard: Lol wtf jeffy?

jeffy40hands: I think I...I don't even know....

Normally I would find a more intelligent conversation, but this will suffice. If you just see this:



I think I...I don't even know....

It makes zero sense, forcing you to look back through the conversation.

I think a limit of 4 or 5 would be enough to stop quote pyramids while not interfering with people's conversations. A 5th or 6th quote would get redundant anyway.

Thanks for listening.
Thanks to Minho for the sig!

I agree, 2-4 would be goot.

and, I had a slight feeling inside that this was done on purpose, rofl.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

Somebody (can't remember who) suggested limiting quote "pyramids" to 3 or 4 quotes maximum. This would allow people to use the double-quote feature without being able to abuse it. As it is, it's difficult to respond to a response (or something to that effect).

I think that was me :3

I'd personally prefer 3-4.
That's far from enough to go to tha pyramids anyways.
