Replies should quote original message!

HP Recommended
When clicking the reply button on a particular message, the reply should automatically insert the original question as a quote (as is the case in most forums) otherwise the reply does not really make sense, as nobody can tell which post it was referring to!

If you click on the Quote button on the top right corner of the post, then it'll quote the post you're replying to.

Oh yes! I hadn't noticed that there! But I think it would be better if the post to which one was replying was quoted automatically, for that very reason! After all, you can always edit the quote once it's in the text box if you didn't want to quote the whole message....

I'm certainly not against this suggestion. Might be worth implementing.

Thanks again!
