I know that we (well, Gargron) decided a long time ago that quote-posting was more trouble than it's worth, but I wonder if some of its utility couldn't be retained, while sidestepping it's pitfalls, by implementing it on forks (like Hometown) and restricting its availability so that users can only quote-post at the community level. That is, you'd be able to quote-post from anywhere, but only to the instance community.
@lrhodes i don’t think the utility is worth the cost even in that circumstance, which makes the abusive usage essy and the useful case hard
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
