    I've accidentally hit multi quote message on someones post and I totally didn't mean to. Since I'm still kinda new to the forum, I don't know exactly what it means when you multi quote a message. Is it something bad??? What does it mean? :confused:

    It just means you want to quote that post and somebody else's in your site. So you could reply to both. Like:

    I agree.

    I disagree.

    = multi-quoting. It means you can quote multiple people in your post instead of having to make a new post for every person you quote :) So if you are reading through a long thread and there are multiple quotes you want to respond to, you can click the multi-quote button on each one and at the end of the thread, if you hit reply, all the quotes will show up in your reply.

    Oh, okay. That's a relief. :) When I accidentally hit that button, I freaked out a little because I was afraid I clicked on something I wasn't supposed to hit. LOL! :D

    If you weren't supposed to be able to hit it, it wouldn't show up for you ;) No sweat.
