First of all, I want to say that I've looked through the forum, and I havn't found anything that looked liked this, Except something about it here and there. So that's why I permit myself to start this new Topic. I hope this is the right place to post it, if not, Eurobricks Staff, feel free to move it
I promised to try to help the Site Improve, so I'm going to give my opinion.
Quotes Should have a 5 lines limit !
That's my Topic today. I know this is a quite radical restraint. I know you sometimes need to have read an entire comment to know what is going on, especially when the topic is updated/bumped after a very long time but still. I once posted a comment that was almost 20lines long ( I did a review about someone's MOC.) And the person, which I shall not name, (because it's unnecessary and because I don't remeber his name ) replied to me by quoting my entire comment and adding something like " I agree". I can't remember it completely. But In anycase, I saw this several times. and once, If you need to respond to a part of a Topic, you can easely reach the ten lines.
To give an exemple. Today, I saw Shadows' Topic reminding some of the "posting standarts" , in this same Forum.
In my Topic, I'd like to quote this specific topic :
If you're quoting the entire post complete with 500 words and 10 images just to say "that's nice", don't.
You see ? Quoting can be usefull, this gives us the opportunity to share a bit of the article without having to go back to the entire Topic and read it all. I'm not saying Quoting is bad, i'm not saying it's useless.
I'm not saying you shoudn't do it.
I'm just saying, you don't have to quote an entire TOPIC. First, because half of what you will quote might be off-topic, and the other half might be useless. If you want to say you agree with someone, just say I agree with USERNAME and you might add a few things to his/her words.
My question to the MODs : Is there a possibility to restrict of amount of lines in one Quote, and if so, Is there a chance to get a limit applied ?
Other members, what do you think ? Is my Idea complete nonsence ? Then tell me why, and give us a good reason why it is necesseray to have a quote bigger than 5lines, or an other limit.
