Quotes for noobs (learn how to break up a quote)
Quote:

So you can post the second bit and i shouldnt be allowed to if i dont tell you? Why be so rude?

Anyways, here is a quotes for noobs guide


1. A basic quote

[*QUOTE][*/QUOTE]

(the * need to be removed for it to work, I put them in so you can see the text) is a basic quote that just wraps something in a quote without saying who quoted it who quoted so

[*QUOTE]this is a quote[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
this is a quote

Edit: there is a button for this, it looks like a speech bubble. If you select text and then press the button the selected text will automatically be wrapped with the quote tag


2. A quote that says who said it

[*QUOTE=who said it][*/QUOTE] this adds who said the post, manually putting that there can be useful when quoting something external. Example:

[*QUOTE=Mangastream]Remember all you sexy bastards out there, Naruto, Bleach, OP, FT, etc. all on break this week. Feel free to take your rage out on us[*/QUOTE] without any * would look like
Quote:
Originally Posted by Mangastream

3. A quote that says who said it and links to the post where it was said

[*QUOTE=who said it;X][*/QUOTE]

Where X is the post number.

For the post that i originally quoted it would look like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey, how do you break it up please and if your not willingly to tell me, then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]

That is what you get when you press the quote button.

4. Breaking up a quote

Now that you know how quotes work it all boils down to preference, how you want it to look like and how you want to do it.

One way of doing it is copying the latter part of the original quote [*/QUOTE] and then pasting it after each section you break up, write your reply, choose the text you want then paste it after that portion, repeat till you finish the go back and copy then paste the first part of the text at the beginning of each portion of text. Of course you can immediately copy and paste both parts of a poste so that you dont forget one in the end.

The end result would be something like this

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4



Which without any * would look like

Another way of doing it would be to cut and paste the second part of the quote tag after the first section of text you want to seperate then write your reply select the second part and hit he quote button (it looks like a text bubble),if you do that without anything else the end result would be

[*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164]Ok Stubborn donkey,[*/QUOTE]
My reply 1
[*QUOTE] how do you break it up please[*/QUOTE]
my reply 2
[*QUOTE]and if your not willingly to tell me, [*/QUOTE]
my reply 3
[*QUOTE]then please DONT offer me no advice in future[*/QUOTE]
my reply 4

Which would look like

my reply 4

To make it like the previous example (which wpuld be preferred, though not necessary ) copy the part that says who posted with the link to the post and paste it accordingly to the proper part in each first half of each quote tag. In my I would copy =minato uchiha;2118164 and paste it where the # is
[*QUOTE#] to get [*QUOTE=minato uchiha;2118164] (of course with the * removed)


Of course you can use any other method you like to get to the end result, but now that you know what the end rwsult looks like I think there shouldnt be any problems

Re: Poor sand people >':

Doesn't this also mean that credit card machines, ATM's, etc...don't work either. Make's it kinda hard to get money out of the bank, amirite. Nice way to fuck up your economy. I wonder if people still got to pay the bills for using their cell phones and internet despite not being able to use the service. IT would be bullshit if they had too.

Of course this is sand people were talking about. It's not like this technological setback is that significant to them. It's the equivalent of downgrading their armies current trebuchets back to catapults. No big deal.

I guess we won't be hearing anything from Darth Nero any time soon. Especially is he is out in the protest.

The Middle East and North Africa is erupting with social justice... interesting times ahead. Tunisia, Lebanon, Egypt and Yemen. How many more before the week is out?

Re: Poor sand people >':

Yeah, hopefully Nero is fighting the good fight, I know I would be battling injustice if I was there. Kinda wish I took him up on his offer to have me live with him as his personal grappling coach. He also said we could climb pyramids and watch movies/play videogames all night long...


Man he's weird. I've got a cool Egyptian statue mummy thing sitting on my desk thanks to him though. He's cool in my book.

Jon Stewart mentioned something the other night about people oversees using the social networks to organize protests and what have you. I wonder if they cut the webz in an attempt to halt the uprising that was mentioned to be brewing up.

Yeah, it's actually on real news programs, too.

Basically, groups are using twitter and facebook to organize mass rallies and riots. They are also using it to send messages, offer support between countries with similar problems, hence the concurrent upheavals in Tunisia, Lebanon and Yemen, and send handy tips for dealing with riot police/army. Like, don't wear contacts because tear gas will be trapped by them and sting all that more.

So, yeah - one hundred percent this is the Egyptian Government trying to lock down this movement and quell it before it spirals too large. However, I can't help think they didn't just make life long enemies by the young internet users in Egypt and perhaps other countries.

Also, I think the government has put the leader of the opposition under guard, too. Wonder how he is involved. Media is very slim at the moment, most of the footage is coming from Al Jazeera, but I'm watching with interest. Egypt was one of the more liberal Islamic countries... this doesn't bode well.

China is probably also taking notes on country wide internet shutdown.

Re: Poor sand people >':

I bank on China following suit sooner then later as well. They have already at points instituted state level censure ship, and shutdowns during that whole debacle with the major search engines.

Its also not far stretch of the imagination for the US government to gain the capability soon either(under the same guise mentioned above). Companies like Verizon are working hand in hand with the fed to bring all information tech into the merging cloud systems. A cloud controlled by them=/

Re: Poor sand people >':

So Canadian National News has already spent 20 minutes of their hour on the situation in Egypt and look to spend at least another 20 or more. It is pretty riveting and important stuff. I hope some of you are paying attention.

Re: Poor sand people >':

*I have pretty much come to the conclusion that this internet blackout is less to quell civil unrest (though I believe that is a part of it), and more about blocking out going information to the rest of the world. Seems like a reasonable tactic. If the overlords can censure all independent outgoing sources of information. Then it is up to the less then neutral official news outlets. Who now thanks to said blackout can feed bits, and pieces of the real story. Simply filling in the gaps as seen fit.

Considering Mubarak's relationship with the US and other western countries. The pain staking lengths gone to keep him in office for 30 years. Compiled with all the economic, and military aid which subsequently starts shortly before he took the position. Along side the fact that our(US) most recent presidents all seem to be quoted showing nothing but adulation for the guy.... Yeah I am forced to think that this more then an attempt to deter some civil rights protesters.

Its sad that so many of our governments support this kind of tyranny. Luckily for the citizens of egypt their are those fighting on behave of their freedom. The same groups that were responsible on the denial of service attacks on paypal and the major creditcard companies during the more recent wikileaks incidents. Are working to provide internet access via foreign landlines, to pretty much anyone with the capability to remote dial out. So kudos to the guys at Telecomix and Anonymous for offering this service. Also for faxing instructions to all the schools, libraries, plus the various other civil community centers on how to accomplish it.



*- Seriously was inspired by the episode of DS9 I watched today. The one where sikso goes back in time and is forced to replace that civil rights leader. The government cuts internet access to keep the abused citizens from telling their side of the story.
