    Arrow Quoting embedded images

    An occasional area of sensitivity between more delicate members and Moderators involves the quoting of embedded images.

    The site's rules specifically mention this practice as a no-no.

    It's not hard to remove these.

    When using the "Quote" facility, the full text of the item being referenced appears between codes e.g. [ quote=Hitcher]Please read the site rules![/quote ]

    If there are any embedded links in quoted material, they will be bracketed by codes containing a URL or YouTube or some other reference. Please delete these and any other content that's not relevant to your reply, including large amounts of text.

    Extraneous material adds little value, is irksome to readers who have to scroll through reams of material that has been posted earlier in the thread, delays response time for members on dial-up connections, and it hogs server space.

    Please don't do it!

    Actually, seriously, can you go back and edit it out if you realise you have sinned after you have posted?

    For some strange reason those buggers from over at ADVRider like it that way. Even though I visit there I must be a KBer because I find their way of displaying photos painful. You're trying to scroll down a page and the damn page keeps growing as the images load so you keep on scrolling on your mouse.
    Cheers

    Surely this would be fairly easy to enforce server-side. Simply don't allow < img > tags within [quote] tags.

    Easier to infract you for posting a message that doesn't quote correctly without the [noparse] tags.

    No they don't. They have the same site rules about quoting as here and pretty much everywhere else. You might notice it more often because more posts there have nice in-line images, so when idjits quote the entire message it's more noticeable.

    Yeah - the first time I quoted something with an embedded doover I was surprised to see that the embed came up as well. I expected it to disappear like any quoted quote does...but before I could modify it out, a certain zealot had me nailed to the wall for it. SO he kids you not - you gotta be QUICK!...eh Hitcher...?
