In the new forum is there a way to know if someone quoted my reply on the same thread?

Just like when we reply to a thread on 4chan:



But I have no idea what's going to happen in nested quotes.
Maybe it's already there in epochtalk with a better idea?

IMO it could be done one of three ways:

1) Notify you when someone clicks the "Quote" button on one of your posts.  Doesn't mean they will post anything though - they could be copy/pasting your content.

2) Parse each new message for proper "Quote Blocks" and notify the owner of those blocks.  But that could be abused easily.

3) Identify the quote blocks before the edit window and make them uneditable.  In combination with #2, this could work, but it would also lead to long useless quote threads, as you wouldn't be able to delete the irrelevant parts of the quote.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).
I will ignore your Prayer Messages unless you donate to 1CDyx8AUTiYXS1ThcBU3vy4SJWQq6pdFMH

Or notify the user and put indicators on the thread which will link to the quotes.
But those indicators will show only direct quotes, and bot will send notifications about both direct & nested quotes.User can have an option to turn off the notifications for a post, if he's no longer interested in that thread.

Quotes can be detected by matching the time stamp and name from previous replies on the thread.




If a user doesn't wants someone to get notified for quoting his reply, then he can simply use formatting & copy paste the text.

Albeit, the idea of indicators sounds a bit complicated.But it can improve readability of the thread.Maybe someone can suggest a better alternative.
