Weird Quote behaviour.

7 posts in this topic

I've noticed some quotes that are just an empty quote box with quoted poster's name but no text. I thought people were just editing to save space or something but then it started to happen to a few of my quotes where I'd just get an empty quote box. Like this:

No biggie, just odd so I thought I'd share.

I have my account set to remove nested quotes in replies and I just noticed my last couple of quotes have nested quotes in them.

Edit: it seems to only be those two isolated incidents.

Ok, it happened again. It seems to occur only when I quote @MS256 , and may or may not be because I'm doing it on my phone.

I've had it happen too. I think sometimes people confuse the system by making quotes a mixture of BBCode and HTML (behind the scenes the rich text editor is HTML - which you can see if you click "Source" of course).

It's pretty intermittent. Maybe MS256 uses Tapatalk or something and that causes it more often?

It does seem like I come up on this thread a lot. ;-) At work there is a normal desktop and keyboard but the browser is out of date which I assume limits some things like all of the functions that are normally above the quote box. Any comments between 3:30 P.M. CT and midnight CT on Saturday or Sunday night are from that computer. I can't update the browser on my own because a lot of security cameras are tied into the same computer and it might be a can of worms if I had to re-start during the update? At home a normal laptop but as of last weekend some of the keys don't work and I have to type those particular letters with the on-screen keyboard. Everything else seems normal and all of the special functions are available when using the laptop at home. This seems to pre-date the problem with the keys on my laptop...so...?
