Multiple quotes with the new look forum (mobile)

Post by Hairy Bob » Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:29 am

Has anyone else noticed the way the forum now displays quotes of quotes on mobiles seems a bit poor?
It pushes the previous quote over to the right quite a bit, making it hard to read/scroll through.

We look into this at the moment. We might activate the old style as an option till we find a solution.

The old one works good while the new one looks good :biggrin2:

If everyone bothered their ass to quote properly it would be fine.

True, but that doesn't change the fact that it is still a bug that needs fixing.

I agree but the quoting is just downright laziness.

I don't think generalising it as a whole is right.
It is necessary for some occasions if you use it wiseley.
But for other occasions it is just a reckless act of clicking the button.
However, as it is almost impossible to limit the actions of the users by trying to tell the pros and cons, an action should be taken by the forum administration if needed.
For example, it can either be completely turned off or may be limited to a number per user per day or week.
The thing is, right or wrong doesn't matter. If you try to limit people they are gonna react without thinking the reasons of the limitations.
So, I guess it is just a dead end.

Man this looks bad doesn't it? Should be enough quotes now to do some testing and fix this.
