I note you have the [quote] thing figured out. There is also a dBCode help page available here, that covers all the codes.
Another way to see coding methods is to use the "peek" button at the bottom of a message. That will open a new window or tab that will display the raw text of that message, including the coding used.
If you are replying to a specific message, it's best to use the little reply button at the bottom of that message, rather than the big "general reply" button. That way links are displayed connecting the two messages. Also, you can elect to receive e-mail notices to replies to your messages via a setting at your profile page (see left end of links at top of page).

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.
There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.
Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150
