Editing Quotes

I have a request for all of you members out there.

When you use the quote feature to reply to a thread please go into the previous posters post and edit out all of the previous post that doesn't apply to your response. This request especially applies to photos. Most of the time a reply doesn't require re-posting a photo to get your point across in response to the previous members post.

The admin staff has been discussing this issue and you may see some editing done by us to remove photos from quotes. Including photos in quotes eats up a lot of space in a thread. There should be no need to scroll down through a bunch of repeated photos to get to the comment that applies to the previous members post.

Thanks for the help with this issue
