Anyone else having the forum edit out quotes?

Have had this happen a few times now and it’s irritating, highlight someone else’s post, click the “quote” button, type up your response and hit the “Reply” button, when it posts up the quoted paragraph is completely gone and I then have to hit the edit icon, re-highlight the text and hit quote again and then submit the edit.

Havent noticed that yet but it seems like something that should be addressed. Thanks for bringing it up

yes and no.

and maybe so

Edit: what I’ve seen is that quoting the WHOLE post directly above the reply will delete that quote. others @KnowledgeSeth seems to leave alone. I could be hallucinating.

@Future @sidco : I think the quote function should be a button like the edit pencil (it could be a set of quotation marks) and the user should be able to select a portion of a post and the only difference is that the site would cancel out the option for browsers to copy and paste and would strictly be a quote function

one reason is the struggle between copy and pasting and the quote box appearing

the quote box above whatever i copy and paste out-performs my android and I end up having the quote box struggle with the “copy|past|select all” box and it makes it a bitch to either quote or copy and paste things. I usually end up having to spend a solid 4 mins trying just to highlight because again the two functions end up competing. It makes it a bitch to google search a part thru highlighting as well. and ik i can’t be the only one who has to deal with this issue.
