Hey guys, I need a quick help on how to use the forums, could someone please tell me how to quote multiple people in a single message?

I think there was actually a multi quote feature builtin. I believe in 90% of cases it's not necessary to automate that much, so I removed it from the templates to keep the forum UI cleaner and simpler.
Multi quote was basically flipping a switch under each post and then you'd click "quote" somewhere and you'd get indeed multple quotes.
Another thing I don't like is how it makes lazy quoting : quoting a huge post, with a one line reply.
Once in a while I'm sure you've noticed a stealth edit from me (technically not stealth since it's shown below post).. where I deleted a huge quoted and put @username instead.
Frankly just do that twitter style @username if you're going to quote a huge post to reply to just a small point in it. May as well just mention the user.
@r3ftch; Thanks for the code!
@ ファブリス; I agree with you that making a huge quote for a quick reply makes the board a little messy, the reason I wanted the multi-quote feature is just to be able to reply to arguments from multiple people with one single post, not necessarily the whole post of the users I'm replying to but more likely one single line from each. I think that the new feature of merging posts written within a 60 minutes time frame is great and should solve the problem, good call!
