The only thing that always gets me is when people quote a post with a lot of pictures which then doubles them and so on.
That's the whole point here. This new RR quoting system forces one to select text to quote. Not the standard select all that most all other systems provide.

Unless the picture is truly relevant to the discussion......
Not singular. I am specifically talking about a post where I perhaps have added 10 pictures of my model to show my latest and greatest creation and the next guy quotes the whole post just to then enter "Great looking model"

If that person just wrote the text it would be obvious to what he is referring to.
This new RR quoting system forces one to select text to quote.
Looking forward to less wasted bandwidth, cheers.

Mark, the quote feature is not working so good on my iPad. Seems to be hanging, and the buttons are not working to submit the quoted post. Anyone else?

Did it ever work? On Mobile Safari, RR supports iOS-7 and greater. That leaves iPad 1 behind.

I am on latest version of IOS 11.0.2. Just updated.
IPad Air2 lots of memory. I happen to be using Chrome browser.
As I get some time, I will try with Safari and Firefox.

Just started up a new iPad Mini 2 to compose this quoted reply. Seems to work fine for Safari. I will install Chrome next and report back.

iPad Google Chrome and selecting text to quote is flaky as you have reported. I will add selection sliders. Please stand by.

Due to a iOS 11 bug I have to rethink the whole approach to the new RR Quote Post routine. I have tried the suggested workarounds with only marginal results. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Mark,
There is no need to fix it for me... I was just reporting curious results. Put it on the back burner. Wow, my first IOS 11 bug report. I thought Apple software was shipped after it was perfect.

Yes I stripped out this common function 16 years ago from the base RR code. Quoting all is abused more often than not.
Yes, I fully agree with you mate. Nothing worse than having guys add long, unnecessary quotes to their posts imho. On RCGroups this often doubles the pages on each thread and makes it almost unbearable to follow.

I really like this new feature btw. Many thanks for all your hard work Mark.

Cheers,
TomC

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Do all the mods work properly with the Android OS?

RR posts now have a quote link. This new system asks you to select what to quote. This allows for better context and more granular multiple quoting. It's a work in progress. I need to add buttons for formatting tags and smilies. Please post reply your thoughts.
Select-Edit-Preview pulls it all together. More granular quoting is job one. And throw in multiple quoting to boot.
73 days ago I introduced the new quote feature. Since then I have been rewriting the entire underlying modal technology driving the feature. This was mainly due to issues with the iOS Safari browser.

RR login, profile notes, profile photo have also been brought forward. Eventually most parts of RR will utilize the new modal technique.

The Post Quote routine is still a work in progress. Stand by.

This implementation is asking you to select what you want to quote. Whole post quoting is annoying if posts are long.
Works well.
