This is something that has been bugging me for years now.

when you quote somebody with the quote post button, there's this awful "author=" put in front of who you're quoting. what's... what's the point. just put the name in italics. you can just delete it (i always do) but ... ugh

Ok, thanks for the info

(ok but seriously yeah that does look a lot better. I wonder if you could hardcode it into the site's functionality. Shouldn't be too hard.)

I don't know, personally I'd go for something like this.

I edit every last one of my quotes to say 'from {username}' for this exact reason. I hope it subtly drove some members insane.
Thank God for this topic. I have thought that since literally forever but I've never gotten around to actually materializing my thoughts on it.

it will probably be something like
@ankylo

because I also want to do something with notices and username tagging.

History on author=WIP:

I built the quote to put that in there in the hopes to one day parse it out to easily show the username with a link to their profile. Obviously that never came to fruition. It was also going to give an easy link to the quoted text.

so if kentona forces the site to change it to that, have i accidentally broken all quotations in my posts for years

I remember that, quoting was always useless then because you still had to go back to the earlier post to see to whom someone was responding. Personally I don't mind any of options, but I'd probably vote colon suffix and commercial at prefix as my preferred.

Clicking on the @username in a quote should give a list of options, with the most prominent link taking readers to the respective person's Twitter account instead. You know, maybe it should just display a mouse-over Twitter feed. I'd really like it to be like a drive-by of compelling user tweets, minus the death and blood of the traditional namesake.

Not everyone bothers with twitter though. It'd be preferable to keep it in-site instead.

I second that, I've got a twitter account but it isn't linked to my profile for a reason, if someone wants to read my tweets they can follow me on twitter. You can also see game related tweets via the add-on on the relevant gamepages.
