my quote feature doesnt work, but your statement about czaban being good, bmitch being horrendous, and espn programming being money is possibly the statement with which i have most disagreed with anyone ever.
As an alternate solution, you could try grabbing the text you want to quote and after using the "Post Reply" button, paste it into your message, then with the text highlighted, click on the "Quote" button. You can add the person's name (ie. Dave B) by adding an = sign and the person's name (in quotations) before the right square bracket.
my quote feature doesnt work
The above sample would look like this: [ quote="Dave B"]my quote feature doesnt work[/quote]
As you can see, I added a space after the 1st square bracket so you could see what I meant.
Hope this helps until your quote problem is fixed.
