Please stop unnecessary quote comments

Everyone on this forum should be aware of making this forum more better.
I'm overlooking some users are using unnecessary "quote" option when it's really don't need. This makes a thread looks messy and spammy to me (probably to everyone). Also, it's very irritating to read these comments with a huge "quote".
Usually, when we reply to a thread, it should mean the original post. So, there is no need to quote the original post unless it has something to mention. If need to quote a few lines, we can do that. Why should we quote a full original post? Useless and irritating. Here is a recent example of this kind of comments, and here is another one.

Need reference to good/perfect use of quote while giving comments? Here is one good example, take a look. Here is another good example.

Note: My intention is not to hurt any individual user. All reference found at random.
Hope this post reduce the number of the focused user's behavior.

I agree completely, and I gave you a merit for saying it.

I shouldn't have included a quote in this post, as it is directed at the OP, but I wanted to show two examples of quote shortening. I used a meow to use the quote function to address my reply to a specific post, others prefer a snip ( [ snip ] ) or a tilde ( ~ ).

The other useful facility is the post subject entry, and very few members seem to use this. It's a handy tool to use to focus your reply.

Here is another one. I do feel the same when I see unnecessary quoting.

Note: My intention is not to hurt any individual user. All reference found at random.
Someone should not be hurt. It's very clear that your references are reasonable.

...others prefer a snip ( [ snip ] ) or a tilde ( ~ ).
I do use (~)

Here is another one.
Question for moderators: If I report those saying "unnecessarily large quote", will they get deleted?

I've seen several "annoying" quoting styles lately:
1. Some people just add their own text as bold within the quote
2. Some people quote the whole post, add [1], [2] and more numbers to it, and handle those bullet points one by one in their reply. This is hard to read back.
3. Some people just mess up the quote entirely, especially nested quotes can be complicate to snip.

The proper way to reply to part of a quote, is to quote only relevant parts, end it with [ /quote], and start the next [ quote] under your own text.

I honestly do not read the whole thing quoted like this. It's either I backed thread or skipped it. My bad. But it's freakin' irritating. Jet Cash was right, I do the [snip] thing and I just learned that by observing how higher members quoted long posts. If we are just vigilant enough how are the other higher rank members react to a post, then we will probably learn.

They quoted the whole thing and not just the signifant ones. Either, they are lazy to shorten it or they are not aware about this thing.  Huh

Hope others may read this thread as this is so helpful to lessen such spam and nonsense quoted comments.

Can I suggest something sir Jet? why don't you start a school to teach us how to properly quote?
There are other satan's slaves in this forum who'd like to learn from you sir Cash.

You are doing a good job by sharing this useful information with other members, but I doubt if the abusers of this function are reading this. I guess the abusers of particular feature should be sent an automatic notation with a long essay where they have to read everything and then also submit answers to some questions based on what they just read. Smiley

We can start with your post for abusers of quote feature. Smiley

I don't think it's something wrong to quote full original post, especially if it's not long. If you are quoting long text, offcourse it's better to leave important parts of text only. If original post have image - better to remove it or leave link to it only. But it's really annoying when users quoting full ICO ANN posts or something similar and they just say something like "great project, sir".
It would be best to crop posts that you are quoting (example - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3405193.msg35647741#msg35647741), but it's not comvenient to do that on mobile.

Well for my case, I just use the reply button on the top right, it only means that I am referring to the OP, well unless you're pertaining to a specific person then you should quote that person, but as much as possible you don't really need to have every word included as for the original post. Just phrases are quite enough but if it can't be help then include at least only the full sentence and not the whole thing.

Well, if this post will get to those people who likely quote long OP like that then this will probably make them realize what they are doing is very wrong and it is really in fact annoying. Sometimes, encountering users who quote like that and you end up scrolling for a while only to find at the end that their reply is a very short one, spam or useless.   LMAO

My general rule is use the reply button without quoting anyone if you are responding to either the OP or the reply before you. If you only want to address certain parts of the previous reply/op then I may quote those parts and respond. I don't always do this, but I think it's good practice to do this.

It may not be "wrong" in the sense that it's against forum rules, but it can get annoying quickly.

That's the first time I hear that someone is unsatisfied with 'quote' function  Cheesy Yes, many users use it clumsy and unnecessary, but what to do with that people?! Their long quote posts irritate only you and couple more people here, but I really do not see a way to do something with this! It is just impossible to teach people to use 'quote' only when it is really necessary and to take only a part of a text instead to 'quote' a whole thread.

It's just forum etiquette it's not really something that can be done about it, but a friendly reminder isn't going to hurt is it?

It is just impossible to teach people to use 'quote' only when it is really necessary and to take only a part of a text instead to 'quote' a whole thread.
Why is it impossible? Your taught at a young age to highlight certain points in a text and respond to it. I don't think it's unfair to expect some sort of commitment to the forum and making your point more clear. The only reason why I can see this is a problem for people is that they are lazy, and just want to reply without really formatting it. Quoting certain sentences makes your point more clear because you are only addressing that little snippet rather than the whole text you should do it for your benefit and not just everyone else on the forum.

It isn't just a couple - it's quite a lot of members.

What to do with them? That's easy, you put them on ignore. As a very general rule of thumb, a person who is too lazy to snip a long quote, probably doesn't have anything worthwhile to say.

I think we've also avoided the topic of massive quote pyramids. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's when people nest quotes and never remove them, making the discussion have a giant pyramid of content before one's actual reply.

Example (with only 4 people):

Quote from: p4
Quote from: p3
Quote from: p2
good?
Quote from: p1
bitcoin
bad
not sure
i agree because the bitcoin will rise and fall because volatility

This is ugly. We should not quote in this fashion.

Is this universal ? I was an above average student and I do not think that such thing was taught to us ever.

Forum etiquette are quite rare especially on a free forum accessible to everyone from different parts of the world. Again, this can be subjective, something considered cool at some place may be offensive to members from a certain place.

Exactly, and oversized quotes by lazy posters, and those horrible  horizontal pyramids, are offensive to most members here.

I used the quote method to answer a question inside a thread that is not related to the main topic since he ask after leaving his or her answer I think that it would be nice to use it because your answer will be off topic if you don't use the quoting way.

Second is, I used the quote info from outside source just to share as answer but never claim it's mine. or you just feel little agony every time you read thread with that kind of quote message and more likely a short conversation?? lol
