Another noob question:

How do you use the "Quote" button ?

I've tried it, and it includes the entire post. I edit it down, then post my own. The quote has always appeared with the html tags, not the nice and sleek look desired.

make sure the brackets and content in them remains the same, otherwise it doesn't post correctly.

The quote button captures the entire post. Editing it down results in it not working Sad

Does your avatar have something to do with Gay Pride?

Yes, I'm cool.

LOL ! no. i'm not bi nor gay. i am straight.

SF and Hollyweird are filled with gays. I'm cool with it. But since when do gays get to have exclusive ownership of rainbows? wtf?


If I could resize and link images from photobucket, the sky is the limit. Hard to find exact fits.

The avatar is nyan cat aka poptart cat.

It's a fad with the potential to become like "Hello Kitty." There are more manly versions of Nyan Cat out there.

You have deleted one of the "end quote" tags from the post you were trying to quote. Because you were copying a quote within a quote, there should have been two "begin quote" tags, and two "end quote" tags. (The "end quote" tag is the one with the backslash.) There needs to be one "end quote" for each "begin quote," or it won't display properly.

Hope this helps! Very Happy

Heyyyyy that last post was just straight up quote. No deleting text. It *still* came out weird.

Here's an excellent website to find avatar art:

Hmmm. . . .now there's a mystery! I used the quote button to copy the above directly from your post. But your post reads as code. Yet when I copied it, it displays correctly. Beats me!
