    IU is welcoming many new users and we have seen an influx in posting. As a reminder to all new users (and a refresher for old hats) re-read our Guidelines and Forum Etiquette threads.

    One issue I have seen pop up again is double (or multiple times) posting. Double posting is defined as posting back to back in the same thread in a short amount of time. This causes threads to quickly swell in size, threads turn into something more akin to a blog or Twitter, and it becomes hard for users to follow the thread.

    One of the causes of double posting is responding to more than one quote in a discussion. The forum software has a solution for this called "+Quote". On each post there is a link on the bottom right of titled "+Quote":


    Click that link to add the quote to a virtual queue of quotes.

    Once you are done reading the thread and collecting posts to quote in response to then scroll to the bottom of the page to the Quick Reply field:


    Here press the button in the bottom left "Insert Quotes..." and a pop up will appear:


    Review the quotes you want to respond to (you can remove them) then press "Quote This Message" in the bottom right of the pop up. The quotes will be added to the response field and you can respond back like normal.

    Please use the +Quote feature as it saves moderator's time in merging posts.

    If you have any questions please post in here or PM an admin or moderator.
