one little thing that would help is adding a quote button to each post. i dont mean the one above the edit box, like you've already got, but having one next to each post.

at the moment there are loads of quotes all over the place, but unless you read back through the entries you have no idea who made them.

most forums allow you to press a quote button which then deposits the text in the edit box, complete with the name of the person who actually made the quote.

I agree for the most part on such a button, but one problem I have with a this is that many use the button on the *entire* post (sometimes with multiple nested quotes) and don't trim it down to the actual part they are commenting on.

Then make it so that it quotes only the most recent comment (like hfboards does) and add a "multi-quote" button that allows you to quote multiple people in your reply.
