    I was reading back through some topics from the time of the switch to these new boards (I'm strange like that), and I noticed that there was never really an answer given as to why the Quick Reply feature couldn't be implemented into these new messageboards. Is this a possibiltiy?

    It's a useful feature that I really enjoyed.

    *For those that don't know, the Quick Reply was a text box at the bottom of every thread that you could write and send your reply in, without opening a new window, as is the way it works now. Really useful for when you wanted to quickly post a reply without quoting or anything.

    Uh, because PHPBB2 doesn't have a quick reply, where as UBB did?

    Really? Bah. I didn't know that.

    Hail UBB, apparently.

    There is a quick reply addon for phpBB2. I could possibly be persuaded to hook it up.

    I have to agree! I didn't know he was involved with GR technically. GR staff named Joe get my seal of approval.

    I'm sorry Joe, but he is wrong about you. You are in fact the best thing since the paperclip which came after sliced bread. You should know better Used.

    Nice, joeblow deserves a raise. He's already fixed something around 5,000 problems. Someone buy this man some prostitutes.

    Looks like - with the addition of a forum-browsing GM who can actually fix problems - we have no need for TNO anymore!!!

    You should be careful adding user-created addons willy-nilly. Can cause problems.

    This one was just minor changes to a few files, which I backed up first.

    I wouldn't go willy nilly on you guys.
