Default Quoting the First Post;;

Hey guys! Thanksies for clicking!

Well, this sort of bugs me, and it only stretches out the page... when people quote the first post. If you're posting, you most likely know what the post was about, so there's no need to quote it, is there? I mean, if it's a post like the 3 or the 4 or something, and you agree, sure, quote it! But the point is, quoting the first post is sort of useless. Just my opinion, please feel free to express yours!

I think that if the first post is really large then it could become a problem, but if the first post isn't that big I don't really think that there's really an issue with quoting it.

I really don't mind when people quote the first post. Now, if it's on a club, and the front page is huge, that would get annoying. But, if it's only a paragraph, I don't think it's that bad.

Well, I usually won't quote the first page, especially if its a story. But if it's not that big,then I will.

Yeah, I mean, when it's short, it's not a problem but when it's long and someone quotes it... :/

Default Re: Quoting the First Post;;

I see this a lot too. Like Amanda said, if it's like a humungous post, like a club or something, it's hardly necessary. If it's about a paragraph, I don't really mind. But anyways, why is it necessary to quote the first post, anyways? Everyone's talking about that, so unless you're quoting like the second or third post, I don't think anybody needs to quote the first post. Well, unless they're directing it to a specific part, but ... yeah. I still agree. {Just sorta babbled there, you can ignore that xD}

I agree, because the owner should know you are talking to them without having to quote their post. Quoting it is just a waste of space. It's okay to quote any other post but the first one just isn't necessary.

Default Re: Quoting the First Post;;

I quote the 1st page OFTEN, especially if the thread extends to 100 posts or more because sometimes the topic train of thought can get lost and it becomes another chat thread. I have seen a few threads veer off topic and be something other than what they were intended, initially.
This brings the topic around fresh and reminds others of what the subject was. Also, if many contributors have gone off in different directions a first poster to that thread can really lose their way.
There is a time and a place for quoting a premier post.

If the first post is over 1000 letters long, I have a problem with it. But, if it isn't that much, like if I quoted the first post of this thread, I wouldn't mind (: It doesn't stretch the page out to far (:
