Exactly. There will always be members who are new, or don't care, or who forget, or who are in a hurry, or who have a need o do whatever they shouldn't. Or even who are just uneducable!

This time it is me who has become frustrated at the number of times people blindly quote an entire message.

"He was a button, take him for all in all, we shall not look upon his like again."

Apologies to Shakespeare.

Re: Reply w/quote disabled again
Percy, is the code somehow tied to the ‘Mark as acknowledged’ (or whatever it said) button? That button also seems to be missing.

Acknowledging a message
To acknowledged a message (note as being read without replying), you click on the "You have not yet responded" at the bottom of the message that was a reply to your message. That toggles the "You have not yet responded" to "You have acknowledged this reply".

There is no "acknowledge" button.

As best I can see, the acknowledgement process is still working correctly.

Re: Acknowledging a message
Okay. Working now for me. Odd. Something like that happened a couple of months ago.

Re: Acknowledging a message
You're not alone - there are times when I'm utterly convinced that computers are playing with my head.
