Corrections

I am new to this site and note that sometimes people quote the original message in their reply, and make corrections to it within that message and in a different color.

How do you do this?

In the bottom-right corner of all messages you find three buttons: Quote, Multi Quote and Quick Reply. If you want to quote multiple messages, you Multi Quote, and if you only want to quote a single message, use Quote.

Another option is to do it more manually (this is what I normally do). Copy+paste the message you want to quote, and either press and insert the text between the [QUOTE][/QUOTE], or type it out yourself. To show which name you're quoting, use ="": [QUOTE="NAME"][/QUOTE].

In order to color your text, either use the button in Advanced mode, or type out [COLOR="COLOR"][/COLOR] yourself. And for striking out text, use either , also found in Advanced mode, or type out [S][/S].

Note that QUOTE, COLOR and S all are case-insentitive.

Thanks. I practiced a little and think I could do it now.

I used to not know how to do that, but I learned very quickly because of the "Quote".
