When you are in a question, and want to reply to a comment made in that question

how do you reply to another member's comments?

we do not have tree threads in answers, so how do you reply to one comment?
sometimes just adding your opinion works,
but sometimes things go off on a tangent,
how do you reply to one member's comment?

do you use the old standard- copy and paste?

  • Yeah, I usually copy & paste, unless it's too long. Otherwise, I will do: ^^SN - then reply.

  • I copy and paste. If you copy and paste something that violates TOS, your post will be deleted when they delete the original. Always worked that way, but there's no other good way to indicate who you're talking to, and even then, some people still get their panties in a twist if they aren't paying attention.

  • if you copy and paste..BUT change it up (maybe misspell there words, or uncap their letters) do you then get your whole answer poofed because you quoted them

    maybe if you copied there answer but put *** over the naughty words
    then does your answer not poof?

  • LOL,
    I ususally just write something like What fiatpax said, or I disagree with fiatpax's reply. Now if it is something worth a quotation, I will copy and paste it.
    or if the thread is slow I will write ^^^^^ what she said.

  • It's alright. I've only had my answer deleted once for quoting/copying and pasting another's answer. I believe it was a racial slur or something and the other member's original answer was reported and deleted. I'm guessing if you censored your copy and paste, it might not get poofed. With the inconsistency of moderators/whatever they are called, there's no way of knowing for sure though.

    I C&P the segment or comment I am responding to and usually include the SN of the person that posted it.  I can only do this on the laptop, as I do not know if this is possible on the iPad.  If it is, I don't know how to do that.  I usually put the C&P'd comment in italics to indicate that it is separate from my comment and made by someone else.
