I have two different topics:
1) Tips for newbies, who want to avoid over-quoting (created on May 12, 2018, 12:55:56 AM)
2) [TIPS] to avoid plagiarism (created on April 19, 2019, 01:48:25 AM)
Weeks ago, some one asked for permission to translate the second topic into Filipino (I accepted) and did it. Then I intended to edit OP of the second topic with link to Filipino translation.
I translated this thread into Filipino language which you may find here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5137268

I'm supporting this topic to make awareness in order to help people to avoid being banned in this forum.
Unfortunately, I actually edited the first topic. Consequently, I have two different topics with same contents in the OP (like multiple posts). I just found my mistakes hours ago, and still don't remember how I did such mistakes.  Undecided
So, I would like to ask for help that are there automatic backup of topics in the forum, so I can get it and edit the first topic to previous version (before I mis-edited it on 29/4/2019)? Or staffs can help me with it?
If not, I have to write the first topic again.

Thank you all for your idea and help to come.

Edited:

Issues solved by help from LoyceV and iasenko. I locked the topic.

Admin can see it, but you can try Google cache first. Or some of the phishing sites that clone Bitcointalk.

LoyceV on the road (or in bed, couch, ....). Don't deal with this account (there's one exception), I use it on untrusted devices.

TIPS FOR AVOIDING PYRAMID QUOTES

Hi everyone,

In my opinion, over-quoted threads are amongst the most annoying types of shitshows in the forum. Honestly, I used to compose such over-quoted threads, but over time I saw better threads from higher-ranked members, then I learnt from them and improve my threads' styles.
In the topic, I would like to present these following stuffs:

- To share with you some necessary tutorials on how to improve your threads' appearance by avoiding over-quoting when composing them.
- To save more space and help it more comfortable for readers, all images will be shown with links. Therefore, readers should click to those links to see them.

For now, your question will be "oh, what are the problems of over-quoted threads?"

As you can see in the following thread, creator over-quoted past threads, which result in vague of idea flows. Furthermore, doing this also causes their threads a bit messy, annoying. Looking at those threads, it is hard to know which specific thread they wanted to discuss (dozens of threads quoted).
https://i.imgur.com/6uL9h6A.png
Additionally, such over-quoted threads also require large space to display. It means my fingers hurted too much to scroll my computer mouse. And no one is responsible for my medical bills  Grin.

To improve threads' quality, at least its appearances, there are three basic simple steps composers should do:
1) Deleting all un-necessary stuffs (including threads, contents, over-sized images attached, etc.). Only keep which threads (full contents of those threads) you want to discuss with.
2) Using snip to announce that in your thread, you only quote part of original contents of others' threads.
3) Seperating original threads to different smaller sentences/ paraphrases which you want to discuss specific part of its contents with your specific ideas.

So, if you spend time to read, and interested in the topic, your next question might be: Oh, sounds great, but how to do this?
Here you go:
Please look at the following images, then you will know how to do this.
I present three ways of avoiding over-quoted threads for you, which correspond to the three points I mentioned above.

1) The first way:
For the specific thread above, please click on the quote, then deleting all contents in the blue highlighted range (which I show you in the two following images).
From there:

To there:
https://i.imgur.com/pi7Iwkg.png
Case study here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3046992.msg32182737#msg32182737

2) The second way: if you would like to hide all contents which are extremely long (but still allocate which thread you want to discuss). Please do like this:
https://i.imgur.com/foveK5R.png
Replace all contents by using ~, snip.
Code:
~
or snip
or < snip >
Case study here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2818350.msg35410681#msg35410681

3) The third way:
For instance:
https://i.imgur.com/gD8uQxm.png
Additionally, if you only discuss with one thread, you should ignore link to the original thread since the second part of quote, you can do like this (simply using):
Code:
Quote
contents
to ignore link to the original thread
Case study here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3377342.msg36883745#msg36883745


To sum up:
Composing your threads with the approach will make them have better appearance. It does not relate to the quality, but somehow makes your threads look a little bit better.
It is not only useful in the Meta board (and other serious ones), but also has good impacts in spamming boards (like altcoin discussions, etc.) ^^
I strongly believe that lots of higher-ranked members don't know how to do this because they luckily ranked up to those current high levels due to old rank requirements, before the lauch of merit system.

Sorry if my topic hurts your fingers, but I think that it's better to display those images to make the topic easier to understand.
This is valuable lesson I learnt from my experiences, so I would like to share it with someone who need it, and has still don't known how to do it.
For someone who known, just ignore my topic.
Please take it easy, because I don't want to bother you with my topic.

Notes:
The topic has been under-constructions

P.S. bitcointalk. TO has updated to your last edit so it's worthless.

JFI How to open it : just copy the link to the post and change .org with .to that's all

warning, keep in mind that you are using possible phishing site, DO NOT ENTER ANY LOGIN DETAILS.
