Basic Forum Functions
How to Quote:
In order to Quote a post, click the "Reply With Quote" button located at the bottom of the post in question, between the "Reply" and "Multi-Quote" buttons. The user who made the original post will receive a Notification.
Additionally, you can Copy/Paste the text in the original post and wrap it in [QUOTE] Tags. Quoting posts in this manner will not send a Notification to the quoted user.
How to Multi-Quote:
When Multi-Quoting, click the "Multi-Quote" Button located to the right of the "Reply" and "Reply With Quote" Buttons on every post you wish to quote. Click "Reply With Quote" on any of the selected posts when you have selected all the posts you wish to quote. Please note that the "Multi-Quote" Button is not labeled.
How to Mention:
Mention another User by using the Mention Tags, or by simply putting the "@" symbol in front of their username:
In order for the Mention to work, you must enter both a) the name of the User you want to mention (between the Tags), and b) the number of the User you wish to Mention. The User's Number can be seen in their Profile URL, after "bmgf.bulbagarden.net/members/"
EXAMPLE: Typing this: [MENTION=41665]Arc Blader[/MENTION]
Will result in this: @Arc Blader
Mentioning a User will send them a Notification.
