    Quick Reply.

    I came up with this idea late last night. It came to me in a dream.
    I invented it...

    Anyway, here's how it works...

    You see, sometimes you want to reply quickly to something, but
    clicking on "Post Reply" and waiting for the reply screen to appear
    takes way too long... So, at the end of each page there should
    be a little box where you can quickly type your reply in and
    submit it.

    This board needs one of those. My idea. I invented it. All ethic, baby.

    >>quick reply
    You mean like the one used here.

    >>My idea. I invented it. All ethic, baby.
    You're a scream
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    That's a nice idea, although it's not new, I've seen it in many forums before, but I think it will take a long time to load a page with the reply at the bottom, so it's better to go to "post reply" when you want to reply instead of having a "quick reply" at the bottom of each page.
    none...

    Actually it is a lot faster to load a text box than a whole new page. Trust me, as a 56ker you'll want to use QR.

    mithrandir, I mean that you'll have to load that text box whenever you read a thread, and ofcourse you are not going to reply to all the threads you read, so when you want to reply you just open the reply page, even if it will take long time to load.
    What do you think?
    none...

    Yes, that is the point of quick reply, so that if you have a slow connection or want to reply to a thread quickly you can do so without having to load up a new page. A text box does not slow down the loading of a thread, or indeed any HTML file. If you go to www.flashdaddee.com/forums/ and load a thread that is the same size as here, you'll see it will take exactly (well almost ) the same amount of time to load, despite the fact that FD uses a quick reply for each page.

    WOW. Ethic, what a great idea, and you came up with that all by yourself! Id love to see it here.

    This board doesnt seem to change much, flashdadde has all that Christmas music, and other boards have smilies with little santa hats, what do we get?

    IMG tags dont even work here with urls, but they do at flashdadde!!!!!!

    Would abuse what? Using the image tag with a url in it? Wouldnt the image be loading from the url, and not putting strain on this server? I thought that is how it worked.

    I'm pretty sure all those other boards stole the idea from ethic, since he came up with it first.
