In some lengthy threads, it takes a lot of time to try and backtrack when you want to respond to a post that someone else has quoted.

Is it possible to include the post # in the quoted post?

When you view the reply post then simply click on your original and it takes you right to it. ;)

When poster X quotes poster Y, and I want to respond to poster Y's original post, it's a hunt back through the thread to find poster Y's post.

Did that make sense?

Yes, it makes sense. You're reading Poster X's reply to Poster Y...which Poster X has quoted. If you click on Poster Y's blue double-arrow in the quoted material, it will take you to Poster Y's original post.

That little blue thingy next to the quoted posters name takes you right back to the post that was quoted.

just don't **** up the quote hash and make it look like poster X said half of what poster Y said when he/she jacked up the quote of what poster Z said.

I guess I just wasn't using the proper technical terms. ;)

EDIT: You forgot to say left click it, though.

Yep. That makes climate change happen and you will be called a racist for that. ;)
