We can already do that, with an extra step in there.
You click "Reply to Post" on any post you'd like to quote, then click "Quote Original" near "Mark up:".
It'd be nice if we could multi-quote, as has been requested a couple of times, though.

Ah, I never noticed that.
I always just though the reply button was there so you didn't have to scroll down to the bottom of the page.
I guess that is the reason that it doesn't automatically quote the post, because some people probably just use it as a short cut and don't necessarily want to do that.
I think a quote button might still be useful though.
When making a post, before previewing or editing, you can still view the thread by scrolling down.
At this point selecting reply would just redirect you to a blank reply window, which wouldn't make much sense.
It seems like it would be advantageous to have the reply button change to a "Quote" button when you are already at the reply window.
The "Quote" icon could then be worked to copy, quote, and paste each post you click to the reply box already open without redirecting you to another blank reply window. Edited, Sep 20th 2010 10:05am by Osanshouo
