Perhaps this may seem like a very easy question for some of you guys but I'm an IT Idiot so pardon me...
How can I do multiple quotes at one time? I'm asking this cos the rating centre in the battle tower seems quite dead and I'm planning to rate as many teams as I can each time I go online. That however is not possible if I can only quote from 1 person at 1 time as double posting or more isn't allowed. I've seen some people quote from 3 or more people at 1 time...how do they do it? Any help would be much appreciated. :)

Ok, maybe I didn't make myself clear enough. What I meant was; when you press a quote icon below a person's post, you immediately get redirected into your reply page with whatever the guy said already there with the [quote] infront and behind of that person's post. I was wondering if you could utilise this feature to quote everything from more than 1 person without having to manually type out whatever the guy said.

Does this mean that if I don't wanna manually type out everything the best alternative would be to copy & paste into a software like Windows Word or something and then copy & paste onto the post before applying the [quote] feature? :?

It's the only other way...but it's not that difficult to begin with. Or hit "Add Reply" and make it go to a new window; that way you have the topic in one window and the reply in the second.

Choose one post you want to start with, and click the quote button on that post. Then, in the reply screen, scroll down to the Topic Review sub-window. There is a Quote button on each post displayed there, and clicking on that adds that posts with quote code to the post you're writing.

Or, instead of hitting the quote button all the time, you could do what I do.

Just copy and paste what you want to quote, highlight it, then click the button near the top that says "Quote".

But it will end up saying this:

Code:
[quote]whatever you quoted[/quote]


To avoid that you can just type ="user" before the "]".

Although, I don't see why you'd think you have to manually type it out.

Oh well not to worry I've figured it out....I just have to click on the quote icon, copy everything, return to the previous page, quote the second person, paste the previous person's post and then copy the whole thing again for as many times I want there after.
