Some Forum posters are having trouble with using the "quote" feature in this Forum. It's a helpful feature when you want to quote some or all of someone else's post while adding your own. You invoke it by clicking the "quote" icon while you are reading their post. You then see a window in which the text of their post is shown between two square bracket  blocks - one at the start of their message saying "quote" (followed by info that displays the author, time and date of their post) and the other at the end saying "/quote"
The /quote block marks the end of what you are quoting, which will eventually be shown inside a box in smaller font that makes it easy to see what's being quoted and what's yours.
Please make sure you start your reply on the line below the /quote block, so you don't type over it.
Not leaving the /quote block in the right place, or typing your text over it, will make the quoted text run into yours, making it hard to see who said what.
If I have time, I will fix up posts that are trying to quote but have broken the format. But if you use "quote", please try to notice where the /quote block is when you start typing, and start your typing BELOW that.
