Basically this lets you quote something (with the quote tags) without cumbersome [quote][/quote] crap you currently have to do.

You can also combine this with other line-based coding...

Note that you don't need a space there if you're using > by itself but you do if it's part of a line-based code.

Now, that's a beautiful addition. Not so bad when you can quote posts like you do on phpbb and such, but this is a reasonable solution for this place.

Honestly that feature is really awful when you have to break a post down into multiple arguments or maybe just have one part of the post you want to quote.

I wouldn't mind adding a "Quickquote" plugin now that I have a better grasp of javascript. That was the best solution for quoting issues of all kinds.

I've gotten so used to "[/qu?ote][quo?te]" on the fly that i don't even think twice about it, anymore. I'm honestly surprised that, due to it's frequency over bold, italics, strikeout, and so forth that it hasn't been shortened to "q" and that "[co?de]" never got shortened to c.

I asked for a quote button years ago, I'm still waiting for it!

But yea this is a good addition, although it's going to take me forever to get out of the habit of using the quote tags so I may never end up using this lol :P

This is going to show how long I have been coming to GT, but I still use the ="" method. It's just so much easier and quicker than the "[/qu?ote][quo?te]". However, I still use the "[/qu?ote][quo?te]" when quoting a large article.

Nice use of the 4chan arrow (in case no one gets it the arrow is used for quotes there as well).
