    It seems in every message thread, that the very last post is missing the quote function. I can leave a reply to the thread in the text field below, but I cannot quote the last post in the thread. The "Like" button is still there however. Is that a bug or a feature?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure about this - but it seems that there is some time that has to elapse before the quote feature becomes available on any given post.

    Perhaps a moderator can correct me on that or add some clarification.

    Late to the party. @-mjk- the quote button is disabled for the first and last post of a thread to stop people from turning every reply into a quote. It's a feature. :D

    You can still quote manually by using the quote button in the toolbar, or you can use @ to tag the person and send them a notification.

    Thanks DJ X. I did not know about the Quote button in the toolbar! Makes sense.

    Ah, good to know. I always thought something was broken..

    EDIT: Still strikes me as strange though, that my own reply has the quote option (as it's the last message) and not -mjk-'s post above me..

    2nd EDIT: Now mine and -mjk-'s posts have no quote option?
