When using the quote function, please do not put a blank between the end of the quote and your reply. It is unnecessary. The quote function adds a blank line on either side of the quote automatcially and the double blank line is ugly. This has been bugging me for awhile and I'm finally adding it the rules. If you don't see the double line in your old posts, it's because I already edited them.

Syd, could you show me an example? I have no idea what you are talking about and I might do it. It'd be good to have a visual example so I don't do it.

This will seriously take some getting used to... as I just let it go about half a dozen times already.

Would it be something like this?

Quote:

Random crap.

Something like that? I'm not 100% sure if I'm guilty of it if that is what it is. I have too many prepositions in my sentence.

Right.


The code should look like this:

Right.

So I assume mine was a correct example of the wrong way. (And yes, I did notice the space in this post and was just screwing around. I'll try to stop doing it from now on.)

Are you just trying to make sure we know how to break the "don't bump threads" rule? I see your plan! *shakes fist*

You do realize this is old news, right? If you look at the dates, the original post was over a year ago. Tebor just bumped it.

Ah, SUPER BUMP. Wink

But I mentioned it earlier today, so I thought it'd be fun to bump it to make the new people aware that we did mention it once. Interestingly enough, McCracken objected to it each and every time. Laughing

BTW, I miss rj815. Crying

Oh, and almighty super moderator, you do know this thread can be reset by simply unsticky-ing it and removing the new posts, right? Question We call that a time paradox correction. Razz

EDIT: I'm just a bit smiley happy at the moment. ^_^ Wait, that's not a smiley! Kirby

ER.. Syd. This might be because it is early and I had a late night but...

Other than a tiny difference in the space of the letters between the lines, I do not see a difference.
