Multi-Quote feature request.
It would make constructing longer posts with multiple quotes infinitely easier.


I'd love to see this feature implemented. It would really help out when you want to quote more than one person or make multiple quotes of the same person in one post. As it stands now, when I want to quote two people in the same post, I have to open up the same thread in another tab and copy/paste. And if I want to quote the same person more than once, I have to copy the quote along with the BBcode and then paste and edit accordingly. This particular situation wouldn't be too awful bad, except that is limits your flexibility when you want to copy/paste a link or a section of text off the web.

The feature is pretty well said here:

And here is an example of another forum using it:
(I posted this one since the way that forum acts feels a lot like LQ acts.)

Hopefully this post isn't too convoluted. I am putting the priority as high since this is a feature that would help out a lot. I'm not sure how your supposed to prioritize a feature request.

Ugh, I can't edit my OP. Sorry for the spelling and grammar errors. :o

This does sound like a good thing to get implemented. I assume Multi-Quote is nested quoting, which *does* sound good. Especially if you are replying to someone who in turn replied to someone else (or the equivalent).
