    We all need to be more careful when replying to a post. Many users are clicking on the Reply tab and then start there reply inside the original message tabs. Makes it hard sometimes to distinguish where the original and new one ended and started. Always make sure you start your reply outside the [...] boxes. I've corrected several in the past.

    Sometimes the cursor does not appear where it should. Windows update thing? At work computer, could not post for awhile unless using Firefox, and at home on I.E. I dont get the face choices I can get at work using Firefox. Or maybe it is user error.

    There is a post on tires where it has happened again. I'll let the poster correct his mistake.

    When you hit reply to quote a pot it will populate the box with the post you are quoting

    Just make sure you have your cursor past the [ \quote] at the end of the msg

    Yea I've gone in and corrected many of them myself. You get it inside there quote and you become an extension of there quote. Sometimes it's been hard to distinguish between the two.

    just wanted to show what they will see in the reply window and
    where the reply they are typing should be placed.
